Mirror Therapy Service

Дзеркальна терапія

You can do mirror therapy with the help of a therapist, or you can try the exercises yourself. This treatment aims to convince your brain, which is responsible for the signals that cause phantom pain, that both of your limbs are intact. You can perform mirror therapy by placing a mirror next to your uninjured arm or leg so that you can see its reflection in its natural position.

You can see your intact limb and its reflection, essentially telling your brain that the amputation did not occur. Spend 20-25 minutes a day looking at this image in the mirror while performing various movements with the intact limb. Studies of mirror therapy have shown promise for pain relief in amputated limbs over time.
