ABSTRACT:
This article reviews the use of mirror therapy for treating many neurological disorders like phantom limb pain, chronic regional pain syndrome and stroke paralysis. Mirror visual feed back activates the mirror neurons to unlearn the learned paralysis / learned pain. This simple, non invasive, cost effective modality replaced the way we approach damage to the brain. This noteworthy modality will flood the faith and hope among amputees and stroke survivors.
KEYWORDS:
