Mirror therapy aims to change the way your brain thinks by carrying out movements and activities with the unaffected limb in the mirror. This will reduce ‘painful signals’ that the brain receives from the painful limb. Watching the unaffected limb reflected in the mirror stimulates both sides of the brain and corrects painful representations of the affected limb that develop when an injury or loss of limb occurs. Mirror therapy is often used for: During mirror therapy a person places the affected limb into mirror box and out of sight and the unaffected limb in front of the mirror. The person then looks into the mirror on the side with the unaffected limb and makes "mirror symmetric" movements, such as clapping the hands. Your brain sees two ‘good’ images and is tricked into thinking that your injured hand is no longer painful. The brain then remembers that movement free of pain and order to gradually reduce pain and increase sensation.
