Find out how CIMT could help your child
What is Constraint Induced Movement Therapy (CIMT)?
CIMT is a technique used with both children and adults diagnosed with hemiplegia. This treatment method aims to facilitate active functional movement in the affected arm and hand.
During therapy the unaffected limb is ‘constrained’ in a mitt or splint whilst the affected limb is subjected to a targeted therapy program of specific exercises and activities to help encourage the gradual development of active functional movement. The mitt or cast can be worn for a short period of time daily or for a number of weeks.
Each CIMT program is tailored specifically to the child and their individual goals, so your therapist will discuss with you in depth what they expect to gain from a programme.
