Dynamic Movement Intervention (DMI)

What is Dynamic Movement Intervention (DMI)?

We are excited to announce we now have two physical therapists who are Level A DMI Certified.

Dynamic Movement Intervention (DMI) is a therapeutic technique used in physical and occupational therapy to treat children with motor delay by improving automatic postural responses and help each child progress towards developmental milestones (Ie. rolling, sitting, four-point, crawling, standing, walking and transitions). 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 means that the therapist will present an exercise in order to provoke a specific movement or response from your child.)

This comprehensive intervention reflects current research on neurorehabilitation, technologies and methodologies. Dynamic Movement Intervention stimulates neuroplasticity to help your child’s brain make new and improved connections and develop their motor milestones.”

We are so excited to add this treatment strategy within your child’s regular physical therapy appointments!
