About

This study evaluates the effectiveness of imagery motor on phantom pain and amputation process

Full description

The expected increase in the number of amputations in the coming decades requires special attention to the common effect after called phantom limb amputation. That term refers to the phenomena covering the sensations that occur in the affected limb and whose prevalence rate is an important part of amputees subjects. Developed theories about their origin focus their attention on the central nervous system and the peripheral nervous system. Thus, the imaginary movement is a complex cognitive, sensory and proprioceptive process leading to a mental representation of movement and it is a widely used technique in neurological rehabilitation and complex pain syndrome.

40 participants in 2 patient groups

Treatment Traditional and Motor Imaginary Program
Experimental group
Description:
Amputees patients also conservative protocol will undergo physiotherapy techniques work Motor Imaginary Program, based on a system of two videos that allow the patient to recreate the "normal" way. The first video will include two sequences of a harmonic gear that will allow the patient to examine, with the physiotherapist, the characteristics of the different body segments involved in locomotion and place the member in space. The second video include an analysis in five phases. This protocol will be applied 3 days a week (25-30minutos) for one month.
Treatment:
Other: Treatment Traditional and Imaginary Motor Program
Treatment Traditional and Mirror Therapy
Active Comparator group
Description:
Amputees patients also conservative protocol will undergo physical therapy techniques mirror therapy work. The protocol will consist of mirror therapy sessions three days a week (25-30 minutes) for a month, where participants will move the intact limb looking in the mirror and imagining the movement of the limb with phantom sensation.

Other: Treatment Traditional and Mirror Therapy
