- Brief summaryThe recovery of hand function after nerve injury is often disappointing. Recent studies show that the brain adapts to the loss of nerve function in such a way that the hand representation is lost after several weeks. The hypothesis of the present study is that providing the brain with the illusion of a ‘normal’ hand might slow this process in the first weeks of recovery, and may help in regaining the lost function when the peripheral nerve recovers.
In the present single-blind randomized clinical trial, the patient will be watching a mirror reflection of the normal hand projected over the affected hand. Training will be structured using a DVD with photos and movies of a normal moving hand. The mirror treatment is additional to standard therapy. Outcome will be compared to a standard treatment group with similar treatment intensity. Primary outcome is muscle strength and sensibility. Secondary outcome is cold intolerance, pain, and ADL.
