Important study highlights most effective therapy methods following a stroke

Following a stroke, it is not uncommon to experience impairments in arm and hand function. It's important to remain optimistic and to begin rehabilitation early.


Did you know that specific treatment methods/tools are more effective than others for recovery of arm and hand use?



Among the most effective treatment tools are muscle strengthening, mirror therapy, mental practice and guided imagery, constraint induced movement therapy, and neuromuscular electrical stimulation.




Check out this study linked below to learn why these therapeutic strategies are superior to others in helping to return function to your upper extremity. Contact me if you're interested in working with an Occupational Therapist knowledgeable and skilled in this level of rehabilitation.
