Abstract

REVIEW ON THE EFFICACY OF MIRROR THERAPY IN STROKE PATIENTS WITH FATIGUE IN STROKE

Sharath Hullumani V.* and Sriram B. S.

ABSTRACT

Mirror therapy is an intervention aimed at improving the functional movements of the paretic limb and it is a ground breaking noninvasive treatment, in which mirror is used to present the reverse image of a body part to the brain and it helps to recognize and integrate mismatch between proprioception and visual feedback of the removed and paralyzed body. Fatigue is divided into central and peripheral. Central fatigue may arise from the cerebral cortex, and also at spinal cord. The mechanisms of central fatigue is theorized to be due to impaired alpha motor cord neuron firing which will reduce a frequency of mean spectral on electromyography(mF-EMG). The objective of this study is the literature review on mirror therapy combined with exercise tasks on the function of the upper limbs and activities of daily living, pain, and visuospatial neglect in patients after stroke.

Keywords: stroke, mirror therapy, upper extremity, acute stroke, chronic stroke, fatigue in stroke.
