dc.description.abstractThe goal of our critically appraised topic was to find the effectiveness that mirror therapy has on decreasing pain, especially phantom limb pain, for adults with amputation. Mirror therapy is an intervention that occupational therapists use to create positive feedback of limb movement and facilitates neuroplasticity to reduce pain. Our findings suggest mirror therapy is an effective tool in decreasing the severity and duration of pain for a short amount of time in individuals with unilateral, upper extremity amputations. Although perceived pain decreased, findings were not consistent across various types of amputations indicating that treatments must be tailored to the individual. Mirror therapy is an effective intervention that can improve the quality of life among individuals with amputations.en_US
