Rachel had a reduced range of movement in her arm, wrist and hand. Her muscle weakness in her whole right upper limb made movements slower and more effortful.
CIMT involves rehab of the weaker arm or hand whilst constraining the stronger arm in a light weight cast. Constraining Rachel’s good arm allowed Rachel to focus on only using her affected arm in activities and increase her awareness of her right upper limb.Learn More
This stimulates the formation of new pathways for movement which rewires the brain. With Rachel, we focused on improving the use of her hand with aim to increase finger and thumb strength, dexterity and function. Throughout we saw improvements in Rachel’s hand and arm to pincer grip and shoulder strength.
