The concept of restricted neural dynamics is not new, however, its impact on our patients’ daily activities and movement tolerance is often overlooked during the examination and treatment of our patients. This course integrates the basic concept of “test-treat-retest” as a foundation to manage these challenging patients.
The basic principle that neural tissue needs space, motion, and slack for optimal healing potential underpins all concepts covered. This upper extremity focused course features motion-based interventions consisting of:
nerve bed/nerve differential gliding
instrument assisted soft tissue mobilization (IASTM)
negative pressure soft tissue mobilization (cupping)
Please dress to allow access to your entire upper quarter to enhance the learning process.
During the hands-on lab sessions, the course instructor will evaluate each application for neural mobilization, IASTM, Cupping and Taping to determine 100% proficiency of all basic treatment techniques. This will be determined by direct observation and correction of any issues with techniques.
