I have just seen an interesting article from the Dana Foundation about the use of mirrors for chronic pain in amputees. The idea behind mirror therapy is that it tricks the brain into believing that one side of the body is actually the other side. This is useful in conditions such as dystonia and other movement disorders as well as chronic pain in amputees. To read more about the theory behind mirror therapy read the Dana Foundation article here: http://www.dana.org/media/detail.aspx?id=31052
