Mirror therapy is an approach for patients with a hemiparesis (paralysis of one side of a body). A mirror is placed in the centre of the body in such a way that the mirror image of the non-affected extremity appears as if it was the affected extremity. Mirror therapy is an evidence-based therapeutic approach that was originally developed for patients affected by a stroke but is now increasingly used to treat children with unilateral cerebral palsy as well as acquired hemiparesis.
