Constraint-induced movement therapy improves motor function in the affected hand of children with hemiplegic cerebral palsy and results in cortical changes in adults with stroke. This study measured clinical improvement and cortical reorganization in a child with hemiplegia who underwent modified constraint-induced movement therapy for 3 weeks. Clinical… CONTINUE READING
