The 96 pages are jam-packed with accessible information, fun, hope, brilliant imagery, a suggested walking program and illustrated exercises.
Where non-painful movements are the goal, Flash Cards are an important tool in the treatment and rehabilitation of pain states where left/right discrimination changes have been identified. With knee pain, even simple exercises may cause pain if your brain can’t recognise whether you are using your left or right side. Recognise can accurately measure the ability to recognise left and right body parts and movements, and to train your left/right discrimination as part of a comprehensive Graded Motor Imagery (GMI) rehabilitation program. GMI is a sequence of strategies including laterality restoration, motor imagery and mirror therapy. They are an ideal companion to the Recognise App, adding increased variety and social context. For background knowledge and instruction for the GMI process, refer to the Graded Motor Imagery book or Graded Motor Imagery ePub , or read through our GMI page.
