Mirror therapy - the virtual body

Phantom Limb pain patients have apparently been treated using the mirror therapy. Their missing limb is very painful. If they see a mirror image of the other limb moving without pain apparently the patients symptoms are relieved. For people who are in too much pain to move or use mirrors I believe they are encouraged to visualize the limb moving without pain. I am thinking this might help with the burning in my back.
