Four years post stroke - get rid of numb fingers?

Question: Husband had Cortical Right MCA stroke August 2016. He has had his hand feel like pins and needles since then. His neurologist says there is nothing that will help him. I read about resensitization and mirror therapy maybe helping him get back normal sensation. Could it help or is it a waste of time?

Answer: The good thing about mirror therapy and sensory re-education techniques is that they can be done easily and inexpensively and aren't harmful, so it wouldn't hurt to try them and see if there is benefit. If they turn out to not be helpful, they could be seen as a waste of time, but if it does happen to help, then it will be well worth it.
