The Graded Motor Imagery Handbook

Sku: 8313

For clinicians and pain sufferers, The Graded Motor Imagery Handbook exercises the synapses of the brain to relieve pain and improve function. Non-returnable.

The Graded Motor Imagery (GMI) Handbook details a novel three-stage synaptic exercise process for neuropathic pain that progresses in graded and monitored steps using left/right discrimination, imagined movements and mirror therapy. Exploring the representation of body parts in our brains and how they may be affected by injury, GMI aims to alter pain “neurotags” or sensitive networks in the brain.

 Arising from 15 years of neuroscience, clinical trials and clinical reasoning science, The GMI Handbook explains the process with patient-therapist narratives and a practical tutorial on getting the best of the online program, smart phone app and other GMI tools. Use in conjunction with the NOI Mirrorbox Triangle and NOI Recognise Flash Cards for optimum results.

This updated version includes a thorough refresh of the text based on a deeper understanding of GMI. In addition, the references have been expanded, and Chapter 5 has been completely rewritten with detailed instructions for the use of the full GMI tool kit. 
 
Written by Dr. G. Lorimer Moseley, Dr. David Butler, and Timothy B. Beames. Illustrated. Softcover, 143 pages.

"GMI aims to exploit the brain's huge capacity to adapt without setting off its more protective side. By getting under the radar of a protective system, Graded Motor Imagery has been shown to offer substantial gains for people with pathological pain syndromes such as complex regional pain syndrome and phantom limb pain. It is indeed an exciting new area with much promise. Scientists across the world are now investigating whether GMI has a more general role in rehabilitation and performance." -Dr. G. Lorimer Moseley, Biological Scientist

Excellent book!

This is a phenomenal book that provides information on effective strategies for PT's to treat patients with neuropathic or other types of chronic pain. The neuroscience of how GMI works is fascinating.
