mirror therapy - the fibromyalgia connection

Medical News Today had an article about a neuiron mismatch with the chronic pain condition, fibromyalgia.
Dr Candy McCabe at Bath Universsity in the UK has shown that using mirror therapy a mismatch could be identified between what the brain sees through the sense of sight and what it feels through the motor system. It states that they have had some success by using this system.
This was achieved by helping the brain to see a limb moving freely without pain - although in reality it is a reflection of their pain-free limb using a mirror.

More evidence of the effectiveness of mirror therapy ease or resolve pain.
