    Even after an amputation, many patients claim to feel chronic pain in the amputated limb. This is known as phantom limb pain. It may also be experienced by paralytic patients or patients who have suffered from a stroke that has left then with a restricted range of possible movements. This pain can affect a person's daily life by making simple activities like walking, eating, dressing etc difficult. Mirror therapy is an effective way of treating phantom limb pain. It uses a mirror to manipulates the visual feedback sent to the brain and trick the mind into believing that the affected limb can move without pain and hence.

    Mirror therapy was first developed by vilayanur s. Ramachandran. This therapy is based on the hypothesis that even though a limb has been amputated or is paralyzed, the brain still receives sensory feedback from it whenever the patient tries to move the affected limb. This feedback becomes ingrained. Mirror therapy was developed as way to retrain the mind and eliminate this learned process.

    To undergo mirror therapy, a patient must sit at a table with a box that has a mirror on one side. The affected limb or stump is placed inside the box in such as way that it is not visible and the other hand is placed on the table opposite the mirror. Visually, the reflection of the active hand on the table takes the place of the inactive one inside the box. The patient is then instructed to move the active hand.

    In cases of amputated limbs, the patient's pain is triggered by feeling that the phantom limb is stuck in an uncomfortable position and cannot be moved. By the artificial visual feedback of seeing the hand and its reflection move comfortably, the brain is tricked into believing that the phantom limb is also moving. This helps ease the pain. In cases of paralyzed limbs, this can also help regain movement.

    Mirror therapy can be practiced at home and usually does not require a therapist's intervention. To benefit from it, a patient must find a quiet secluded part of the house where he or she will not be disturbed. Unlike other forms of therapy, mirror therapy should be practiced for not more than five minutes at a time. However, the patient may do this as many times as he likes during the day. As this is a non invasive procedure, there are no side effects to this kind of therapy.

    Sensory integration therapy has been specially designed to assist children who are facing issues in processing sensory information. As a part of this therapy, children undergo repetitive exercises that helps them to experience touch and other sensations more accurately. Sensory integration therapy aims to adjust the way children respond to physical sensations.

    Autism's symptoms include difficulty in processing sensory information, such as textures, smells, brightness, sounds, tastes and movement. These difficulties can make ordinary situations feel overwhelming and interfere with daily function leading to isolation of individuals and their families.
    Sensory integration therapy uses play activities designed to check how the brain reacts to sight, touch, movement and sound. Some children experience an overload of sensory information and are hypersensitive to certain types of stimulation.

    When they have sensory overload, their brains have difficulty in processing or filtering many sensations at once. On the contrary, other children are under sensitive to some kinds of stimulation, which means that they do not process sensory messages quickly or efficiently. These children struggle to understand, respond and organize to the information they take in from their surroundings and finally get isolated from their surroundings. The therapy is designed for children with sensory processing issues, including dyspraxia, ADHD, autism and spectrum disorder. It might also be used with young children who show signs of developmental delay.

    Sensory integration therapy is fun for kids because it resembles playtime. It is done in a specially designed setting where kids are required to play with balls of different sizes, textures and weights. Sessions involve playing with clay and other materials. Children are asked to bounce, swing or spin on special equipment.
    The therapist gradually makes these activities more challenging and complex. The therapy exposes children to sensory stimulation in a structured, repetitive manner.

    This is based on the theory that the brain will adapt and allow them to process and react to sensations more efficiently in the due course of time. Sensory integration therapy is provided by occupational therapists certified in sensory integration, which effectively means that therapist can plan strategies for use in therapy sessions to help a child with sensory issues. As therapists may only see a child an hour or two a week, therapy extends into the home and in school in form of a sensory lifestyle. Caregivers work with therapists to create a detailed schedule of therapies specific to each child, which may require adaptations to make the home such as creating quiet spaces and reducing visual clutter, are often suggested.

    There's no harm in having one's child try sensory integration therapy. But one must be aware that there may be more effective ways to help the child with sensory issues. The protagonists of this therapy claim that it can help kids learn and pay attention in a more efficient manner.
