Revolutionary Treatment for Stroke Now Available in Western Australia

Perth, Australia (PRWEB) June 18, 2013

A ground-breaking therapy service has been launched in Perth to offer stroke patients a new rehabilitation treatment.

Constraint Therapy Australia celebrated its launch earlier this month and offers a new intensive rehabilitation program to help people who have suffered a stroke as well as those with cerebral palsy and some other neurological conditions.

Constraint Therapy is the revolutionary brain-based treatment that “rewires” the brain helping people to improve the use of their hand and arm after brain injury.

Constraint Therapy was pioneered by Prof. Edward Taub at The University of Alabama, Birmingham, USA. Prof. Taub is a neuroscientist whose work has been described as at the forefront of a revolution in rehabilitation.

Director of Constraint Therapy Australia Daniel Lane trained with Professor Taub and his team at the renowned Taub Therapy Clinic at the University of Alabama and has now established Western Australia's first Constraint Therapy Clinic.

“Constraint Therapy works by harnessing the brain's natural ability to change its own structure and function, a process known as neuroplasticity," says Daniel Lane.

“This intensive treatment program is proven to substantially improve the function of the hand and arm in just 2 weeks, even if the stroke happened many years ago. Our program aims to replicate that offered at The Taub Therapy Clinic in The USA and is centred around intensive one-on-one sessions with a trained therapist as well as plenty of exercises at home.”

The Stroke Foundation's National Stroke Audit (Rehabilitation Service Report) was published in 2012 and one of the five key recommendations was that "Further work should be undertaken to improve access to relevant community-based rehabilitation services once the stroke survivor has been discharged from hospital." Daniel Lane says that “the program offered by Constraint Therapy Australia helps to meet this need for community-based rehabilitation by providing evidence-based care that is proven to transform the lives of stroke victims and their families.”
