Netherlands and others study - The clinical aspects of mirror therapy in rehabilitation: a systematic review of the literature.

The study (This link is from a google search on the topic.) was publishsed in International Journal of Rehabilitation Research 34:1–13  2011 with the objective of evaluating "the clinical aspects of mirror therapy (MT) interventions after stroke, phantom limb pain and complex regional pain syndrome."

As with much written about mirror therapy, firm conclusions were not drawn and the suggestion is for more rigorous testing. Funding for research is limited and competitive. Mirror therapy is free once taught so is not finantially lucrative thus not attracting funds from those who seek to finantially benefit.
