Mirror therapy forms part of Graded Motor Imagery (GMI) a treatment program to aid recovery after many complex pain and movement conditions including, phantom limb pain; Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS) and for rehabilitation after a stroke; an injury; or surgery.  

There are three stages of treatment in Graded motor imagery, each exercising your brain in different ways.

and backwards in the treatment process to suit the individual.
