Mobilise – to prepare, to awaken and to move.
Noigroup’s classic, longest-running course, Mobilisation of the Nervous System, has evolved. The course has been updated and re-written ‘from the basic science up’ based on the latest evidence. The research is compelling – via its interaction with the nervous system, the immune system is a critical player in learning, memory, movement and sensitivity. This new understanding integrates peripheral and central processes and targets therapy towards healthy neuroimmune balance.
This comprehensive lecture and hands-on course integrates the latest research on neurodynamics and neuroimmune science to provide a clinical reasoning framework to identify those patients who will benefit from neuroimmune mobilisation. The course then updates and refines the essential practical skills to examine and manage the physical health of the nervous system – skilled, safe and appropriately timed handling techniques are covered in detail during labs and practical sessions.
This course is for  health professionals and registered medical practitioners, physiotherapists, occupational therapists, clinicians with a ‘hands-on’ license.
To enhance your course outcomes, the following pre-reading is strongly recommended:
  • Butler DS (2000) The Sensitive Nervous System, Noigroup, Adelaide. (Chapters 2-5)

His physiotherapy journey began with a degree from The University of Melbourne, Australia, followed by a move into clinical practice in New York. In NYC, Luke co-founded New York Sports Medicine which Orthology later acquired.

Still one of New York City’s most prominent physical therapists, Luke’s extensive experience in the management of acute and chronic pain and sports injuries demands that he travel extensively to manage professional and Olympic athletes, as well as touring performing arts/dance company members. He currently serves as a consultant with the NBA League as well as European soccer professional teams. Luke is also affiliated with the clinical education programs of Columbia University and Touro College.

Luke practices a ‘hands-on’ approach combining his advanced manual skills with neuromuscular/exercise and education. He has a strong belief that education is fundamental in optimising patient recovery and performance. He has taught advanced skills courses in Manual Therapy internationally since 2004 and has been on the NOI faculty since 2015. 

He is currently involved in clinical research focused on injury management and is developing guidelines for injury prevention in sports medicine and in the workplace.
