Mirror Therapy Effect on Hand Functions in Cerebral Palsy

August 3, 2022 Medical Science 0

This study’s goal is to ascertain how mirror treatment affects the hand functions (fine and gross motor activity) in kids with hemiplegic cerebral palsy. Cerebral palsy (CP) is a term used to describe a range of movement and postural abnormalities that limit activity and are thought to be the result of non-progressive disruptions in the developing fetus or infant brain. On a female patient with hemiplegic cerebral palsy aged 5 years old, the QUEST and Box and Block tests were administered. For three weeks, mirror treatment was used for 30 minutes a day, six days a week. The right hand’s tasks comprised grasps in the cylindrical, spherical, and hook patterns, gripping exercises with a green therapeutic gripping gel, peg board arrangement, peg link exercises, and item transfer. Significant variations between pre- and post-treatment scores showed that mirror therapy affected how often the injured hand was used for daily tasks.
