NEJM reports Mirror therapy for complex regional pain syndrome type 1 - Thanks again Steve for sending me this link.

New England Journal of Medicine 2009 reported Mirror therapy for Complex Regional Pain Type 1 and Stroke.Their randomized sham controlled study indicated that mirror therapy effectively reduces pain and enhances motor function in the arm of patients with stroke and complex regional pain syndrome type 1. It stated that "the traditional view that in patients with stroke, complex regional pain syndrome type 1 in the arm is refractory to mirror therapy needs to be reconsidered."

Thanks Steve for letting me know about this. There is more and more evidence supporting this type of therapy for brain retraining and reducing pain.
