Description

Graded Motor Imagery (GMI) is an evidence-based, graded brain training programme that accesses the brain’s virtual body. 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 using Apps, Flashcards, motor imagery, mirrors and Explain Pain education. In this course, participants gain confidence and skills to use GMI immediately and to integrate it into their current practice effectively.

The course is structured around practical sessions supported by discussions of clinical applications.
