Graded Motor Imagery is an emerging therapeutic strategy for treating both musculoskeletal and neurological insults. By learning a Graded Motor Imagery Program (GMIP) the clinician will be able to treat the cortical representation that has changed the brain. The interplay between the brain and the body is most important to understand to assist in designing a treatment program that can "rewire the brain " . This lecture will present a model to use "top down treatment " ( GMIP ) as well as traditional "bottom up" treatment to improve functional outcomes.
Objectives: Upon completion of this course, the participant will be able to:
I. Identify the three components of Graded Motor Imagery and their sequential use
2.. Identify neuroplasticity and differentiate maladaptive neuroplasticity from adaptive neuroplasticity
3. Describe central sensitization that occurs in persistent pain and list 3 clinical signs .
4. Integrate the top down approach in retraining the brain and develop a home program for a patient that has recently suffered a cerebral vascular accident.
