Sensory re-education is a remedial program that uses sensory stimulation to assist the sensory-impaired recoup functional sensibility in the area that suffered the damage and for them to assimilate adaptive functioning.
Patients suffering from different types of sensory impairment and loss due to an accident or illness are able to rehabilitate their sensory pathways, regain function, and adjust to altered abilities, with the help of sensory re-education.
Sensory nerve injury is either caused by nerve inflammation, stretching, or compression, or accident.
It can also be because of surgically related injuries to the PNS or peripheral nervous system.
For sensory re-education, it is important to clarify the procedures that affect the momentum of peripheral nerve rebuilding. It is especially important for patients who have experienced dissatisfactory recovery of their sensory function or have developed neuropathic pain after a traumatic or iatrogenic injury to the peripheral nerve.
