Learn clinical Neurodynamic assessment, diagnosis and treatment techniques with Michael Shacklock
LOWER QUARTER 1 COURSE focuses on neurodynamics applied to the lumbar spine, hip and piriformis syndrome, hamstring injury and foot/heel pain
Michael Shacklock proposed the concept of neurodynamics in 1995 with his paper in the British Journal Physiotherapy in which various scientific cornerstones formed a key aspect of clinical practice in physiotherapy and physical therapy neurodynamics practice.
This has been developed on in his book Clinical Neurodynamics, 2005, Elsevier, Oxford in which the whole body is dealt with in diagnosis and treatment of many musculoskeletal syndromes with a neural component.
The courses by Neurodynamic Solutions are based on the philosophy of helping therapists develop their clinical skills and applying them to their patients. This course therefore contains approximately 65% practical and 35% theory.
ABOUT THE COURSE:
This 2 days course will cover: concept of neurodynamics, sequencing of neurodynamic tests, neuropathodynamics, physical examination, diagnosis, treatment and treatment progressions for the upper limb.
General neurodynamic principles applied to the entire body and specifically the lower quarter, including the lumbar spine, hip and piriformis syndrome, hamstring injury and heel pain due to tibial and medial calcaneal nerve disorders
Classifications of structures and mechanisms for diagnosis and treatment
Neurodynamic sequencing - a mechanism that can be used to make neurodynamic technique more specific than in the past
How to differentiate nerve from other tissues with mechanical testing
How to make diagnosis and treatment more specific than before.
