This course is open health professionals involved in pain and stress management.
Graded Motor Imagery (GMI) is an evidence based, graded, brain training programme which accesses the virtual body in the brain. It is useful for a wide range of chronic pain states where the central nervous system may be up-regulated, including osteoarthritis, Complex Regional Pain Syndrome, phantom pains and ‘non-specific’ spinal pains. It gives new hope to many people in pain.
GMI involves the use of Apps, Flashcards, motor imagery, mirrors and Explain Pain education. In this course, participants are given the confidence and skills to use GMI immediately and to effectively integrate it into their current practice.
The course is structured around practical sessions supported by discussion of clinical applications.
The NOI Explain Pain course provides the educational underpinnings for the GMI course and as such is a prerequisite.
Bring an iPhone, iPad or Android device to the course with one or more of the Recognise Apps downloaded onto it.
At the end of the course, participants will:
- Understand the process of GMI and where it fits into an overall treatment programme
- be able to identify appropriate patients for GMI from both clinical presentations and research outcomes
- have knowledge of the scientific underpinnings of GMI
- have practical skills in using the three components of GMI
- be able to confidently translate learnt GMI skills to effective treatment applications

An experienced NOI Instructor in the UK, Ben has taught EP, MONIS and GMI courses in the UK & Europe since 2008. His background as a physiotherapist involves primary, secondary and tertiary care settings. The majority of Ben’s experience is with people who have complex, persistent pain presentations. Currently Ben works in primary care for Virgincare (Bath and Northeast Somerset, UK) as professional lead for physiotherapy and clinical specialist physiotherapist in pain management.
Ben’s PhD at the University of the West of England was in painful diabetic neuropathy, exploring whether this group of people could benefit from the pain management approaches which are relatively common in the MSK pain world, but not in the diabetic world.
You can find Ben on twitter (@ben_davies42), although he tends to use his free time riding two wheels (road + gravel = groadie?) or getting back out into the mountains.
