Steve, always start on Eval, Reset, and Stabilize, but the 2 hours of formal EDGE training for basics are on EDGE Mobility System

Dr. E, I'm attending McKenzie Part A next weekend (just found out because I was on a wait list). I was wondering if you would have any suggestions about what to review prior to make the course more

beneficial? I'll look through the McKenzie papers on your references page you linked here a week or so ago when I asked.

The references on my page are fine. Honestly they'll present with enough research

It's very simple in concept. Hope you have a good instructor!

Erson, any tips/help for progression for using mirror therapy? Was thinking of trying it with a pt with an 1st MCP sprain who has been immobilized for the last couple of months and is extremelypainful

Erson
DK, just the same as how you would progress any patient with high sensitivity, graded exposure

Erson
start with the involved foot in the box or behind the mirror
13 Dec 17, 12:33 PM
Erson
then they can lightly move around the uninvolved without moving the involved
13 Dec 17, 12:33 PM
Erson
it will still appear (illusion does not have to be 100% convincing - rubber hand works in research)
13 Dec 17, 12:33 PM
Erson
that the involved foot is moving
13 Dec 17, 12:33 PM
Erson
if that does not set them off or they are ready, they can then mirror light movements like toe movements, ankle circles etc
13 Dec 17, 12:34 PM
Erson
start mirroring the movements in joints that are not irritated then progress to painful ones
13 Dec 17, 12:34 PM
Erson
they'll need the mirror box to train and spend time in a few times a day for 10-15 minutes or so
