- ACRONYMTreatment of Complex Regional Pain Syndrome Type I with Mirror Therapy
- hypothesisThe hypothesis of this study is that mirror therapy stimulates cortical representation of the upper extremity. The functionality of the upper extremity will improve more than with only conservative therapy.
- Healt Condition(s) or Problem(s) studiedComplex regional pain syndrome type 1 (CRPS I)

- Brief summaryCRPS-I is characterized by pain, oedema and sympathic dysfunction and is generally preceded by trauma.
The cause is however not known. We hypothesise that a central factor in the movement planning may play a role, which expresses as 'fear to move'.
In order to intervene, mirror therapy is applied in combination with the regular therapy.
Mirror therapy is based on the principle that reflection of the healthy arm causes the illusion that the injured arm moves simultaneous and symmetrical with the healthy arm and thus stimulates the cortical representation of the injured arm.
In a randomised study of 20 acute CRPS-1 patients (based on the IASP-criteria), all patients receive regular physiotherapy and 10 subjects receive additional mirror therapy.
Primary outcome is arm function, quantified by the Action Research Arm Test (ARA). Secondary outcome parameters are pain (VAS), mobility (Range of Motion), grip strength (JAMAR), sensibility (monofilaments) and the Radbout Skills Questionair.
