Graded motor imagery is effective for long-standing complex regional pain syndrome

Graded Motor Imagery for Chronic Pain View more documents from BodyIn Mind. Abstract Complex regional pain syndrome type 1 (CRPS1) involves cortical abnormalities similar to those observed in phantom pain and after stroke. In those groups, treatment is aimed at activation of cortical networks that subserve the affected limb, for example mirror … [Read more...]

Is successful rehabilitation of complex regional pain syndrome due to sustained attention to the affected limb?

Graded Motor Imagery for Chronic Pain View more documents from BodyIn Mind. Abstract In complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS1) initiated by wrist fracture, a motor imagery program (MIP), consisting of hand laterality recognition followed by imagined movements and then mirror movements, reduces pain and disability, but the mechanism of effect … [Read more...]

Graded motor imagery for chronic pain

Graded Motor Imagery for Chronic Pain from BodyIn Mind Abstract Background: Phantom limb and complex regional pain syndrome type 1 (CRPS1) are characterized by changes in cortical processing and organization, perceptual disturbances, and poor response to conventional treatments. Graded motor imagery is effective for a small subset of … [Read more...]
