Effective Therapy for stroke rehabilitation

Mrs. C.W. Manchester


“My father who is 66 suffered a sub arachnoid haemorrhage leaving him with a dense left arm weakness and inattention to the left side.

Following 3 sessions with a mirror box his inattention has noticeably improved and although he is functionally limited by dupytrens contracture his motor function has also improved. I have been encouraged with these early results and although he is limited by his lack of concentration we will continue to use the mirror box in short frequent bursts.”

    Mirror therapy does work wonders. Did you know that Yamamoto New Scalp Acupuncture also works for this? In my opinion only (I use both), it appears to have the same/similar mechanism but seems more intense/faster in result.
    Mirror therapy engages miror neurons (monkey see, monkey do). It retrains the brain utilising the cortical representation of the body in the brain. YNSA works on a micro system of the body represented in the head. Pictures of body representation are very similar.

    i had stroke 4 years ago. i made good improvements and isolated most of my deficits to a clumsy hand.
    i work the miror theopphy 1 hour a day. does it work?
    well, not sure as cause and effect would require unbias measurements. i do feel that mirror therophy moves one away from the learned unuse of the hand to a point where the resistance to use the hand decreases. yes i still tpye with one finger lol

    now if anyone knows how to decrease spasity….
