"CIMT has improved the use and supination of his hand and movements have become much more fluid.”Laura, George's mum.
George lacked with movement and control in his right arm. George also struggled with consistent grasp and release and his ability to achieve pincer grip. In observed play George showed the strong preference to his left side and throughout the programme we worked on increasing George’s awareness in use of his right arm to make a meaningful difference.
"The guilty feelings and frustrations are minimal in comparison to what is being achieved during CIMT"Laura, George's mum.
"Our advice is to go for it! But prepare for a big roller coaster"Laura, George's mum.
"He spontaneously uses his right hand more.”Laura, George's mum.
CIMT involves constraining the stronger arm in a lightweight cast and involves rehab of the weaker arm and hand. Having the cast on for 3 weeks has allowed George to focus on only using his affected arm in activities and increase his awareness of his right upper limb.Learn More
This helps to stimulate formation of new pathways for movement and in turn helps to rewire the brain. The high intensity and repetitive use of George’s affected upper limb over a relatively short period of time had produced a lasting change.
“CIMT met our expectations and we are so impressed with the results"Laura, George's mum.

"The therapists were brilliant during CIMT"Laura, George's mum.
“George has received two lots of modified CIMT treatment under the NHS and we could see great results but we knew casting could give the best possible results at an optimum time before he started school.”
“You may have times of feeling frustrated, but all these feelings are minimal in comparison to what is being achieved. We would definitely say go for it, but prepare for a big roller coaster!” - Laura, George's mum.
George was a pleasure to work with. He was a very happy boy and happy to give anything a go. The increase in George's ability and awareness over the 3 weeks really impressed me but this was all down to George’s hard work in achieving his goals.Learn More
