Using Modified Constraint Induced Movement Therapy With Patients That Had a CVA

Listen in to Lauren Walker MOT, OTR/L talk about how her team did this to produce better outcomes for her patients who experienced a stroke.

  1. This is an excellent episode. Constraint Induced Movement Therapy is really powerful and effective, you have to see it to believe it. I can definitely attest to the effectiveness of Constraint-induced Movement Therapy as my daughter is currently in the program. It’s a four week program based in Manchester, UK and we have seen great results. I’m so grateful to have come across this therapy. I’m documenting her progress and daily sessions here: Cortical Visual Impairment Journey
