The duration and number of pain episodes were recorded as well as the intensity with the use of a 100 mm visual-analogue scale. After the 4 week therapy, 100% of the patients from the mirror group reported decrease in pain. On the other hand, only one patient (17%) from the covered-mirror group reported decrease in pain and 50% reported worsening of pain. In the mental visualization group, 2 patients (33%) reported decrease in pain while the 4 (67%) reported worsening of pain (Witt et al, 2007). Mirror box therapy was the most effective in decreasing phantom pain.
