DYNAMIC MOVEMENT INTERVENTION
Dynamic Movement Intervention (DMI) is a therapeutic technique used in physiotherapy and occupational therapy to treat children with motor delay by improving automatic postural responses and promoting progress towards developmental milestones.
The goal of DMI is to provoke a specified active motor response from the child in response to defined dynamic exercises prescribed by the therapist.
This comprehensive intervention incorporates current research on neurorehabilitation, technologies, and methodologies.
DMI stimulates neuroplasticity to facilitate new neuronal connections and development of motor milestones.
Children diagnosed with any type of motor delay including conditions such as; Down Syndrome, Cerebral palsy, global developmental delay, hypotonia, chromosomal abnormalities/genetic disorders, spinal cord lesions or acquired brain injury may benefit from this form of therapy. Children at risk, such as those who are born prematurely can also benefit from this therapy due to the strong neuroplastic changes that this treatment stimulates within the developing brain.
