Constraint induced movement therapy is an evidenced based treatment approach to get more functional movement in an arm after a stroke or other neurological injury involving one side of the body. The therapy will encourage the use of an affected arm by restraining the unaffected side along with intensive and goal-directed treatment.
The intensity and duration of the program will be determined by the amount of available movement of the affected side. Due to the differences between how individuals react to intense treatment such as constraint therapy, there are strict criteria to be eligible for this kind of treatment.
