Children with Cerebral Palsy May Benefit from Therapy Aimed at Involuntary Hand Movements

Unilateral spastic cerebral palsy (“USCP”) patients, whose motor movements are impaired on only one side of their bodies, may benefit from targeted rehab therapy focused on controlling involuntary hand movements, according to a study. German researchers developed a “bimanual therapeutic regimen” for children with the condition that experience mirror movements—where intentionally moving one hand triggers involuntary movement of the other. This regimen involves suppressing and controlling mirror movements to achieve the desired activity. 12 children ages 6-17 participated in the 12-week training regimen. “The major finding of our study was that our approach of targeted bimanual therapy of children with USCP and mirror movement achieved a significant and long-lasting improvement of bimanual performance,” researchers wrote.
