Graded Motor Imagery

For people seeking relief from pain without medication, Graded Motor Imagery (GMI) is an innovative option. GMI is a rehabilitation program that uses brain exercises as a way of treating many complex pain and movement problems.

Brain Training to Reduce Pain

To treat difficult and ongoing pain problems, our specially trained Physical Therapists utilize Graded Motor Imagery to exercise your brain in measured and monitored steps. GMI includes three different treatment techniques:

  • Explicit motor imagery exercises
  • Left/right discrimination training
  • Mirror therapy

By going slowly through this process with repetition and guidance, you can have less pain and improve your ability to perform daily activities.
