course deScription :
This practical upper quarter hands-on course take the therapist from the old concepts of neural tension to a new concept of neurodynamics. Shacklock’s upper quarter neurodynamic concept is presented clearly and methodically and offers the clinician new techniques for diagnosis and treatment of musculoskeletal problems with an upper quarter neural component. The Shacklock concept helps the therapist select and perform new diagnostic and treatment techniques without provoking symptoms andprogresses from the highly restricted patient to the athlete. These are illustrated with practical demonstrations and real-time imaging videos of neural movement techniques, collected exclusively by Michael Shacklock and the Neurodynamic Solutions (NDS) faculty. Key features of the courses include:
‣ lab/practical sessions with demonstrations and practising of techniques
‣ new neural testing and treatment techniques
‣ new systematic diagnosis and treatment approach
‣ integration of neural techniques with the musculoskeletal system
‣ systematic progressions from low to high levels of performance
‣ scientific support with evidence based research and real-time videos of nerve movement.
Continuing Education Itinerary :
Upper Quarter 1
manual skills, specifically the ability to feel abnormalities in movement related to the nervous system in the upper quarter
abilities in diagnosis and interpretation of upper quarter neurodynamic testing and musculoskeletal relationships
clinician’s repertoire of diagnosis and treatment of techniques
safety in relation to clinical neurodynamics
apply clinical neurodynamics in the context of the research evidence.
