Modified Constraint Induced Movement Therapy
This specialized type of occupational therapy is most often used for people who have suffered a stroke and have lost function in one of their arms. Constraint induced movement therapy involves restricting your more functional arm with a sling or mitt for most of the day. During that time, you force the less functional arm to perform repetitive training.
Modified constraint induced therapy is the less intense version. The principle is the same, but the length of restriction and the intensity of the repetitive training will vary. Our certified occupational therapists will work with you to determine the best approach for your situation. The goal of this therapy is to res tore as much function as possible to the arm or hand that was more affected by a stroke.
