Further information

I also offer Mirror Visual feedback therapy, this has been found to be of use in the management of the phantom limb. It is thought that the mirror works by 'tricking' the brain to believe that the painful phantom limb is now 'normal' through looking at the reflection of the unaffected limb. This help, over time, to correct the messages to the brain and thereby reducing pain.
