Mobilise – to prepare, to awaken and to move.
NOI’s classic, longest running course, Mobilisation of the Nervous System, has evolved. Based on the latest evidence, the course has been completely updated and re-written ‘from the basic science up’. The research is compelling – the immune system via its interaction with the nervous 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)
  • Nee RJ, Butler DS 2006 Management of peripheral neuropathic pain. Integrating neurobiology, neurodynamics and clinical evidence. Physical Therapy in Sport: 7: 36-49
  • Yirmiya R, Goshen I (2011) Immune modulation of learning, memory, neural plasticity and neurogenesis. Brain, Behav, Immun 25: 181


This course aims to:

  • provide a basic knowledge of neuroanatomy, neurodynamics, neuroimmunology and neuropathobiology related to the manual examination of the nervous system
  • teach safe and effective diagnostic skills in the examination and interpretation of physical dysfunction of the nervous system
  • present neurodynamic movements and techniques as antigenic
  • provide new therapeutic narrative for explaining symptoms in conditions with altered neurodynamics
  • deliver a deeper understanding of known, ‘tough’ clinical presentations such as chronic nerve root problems and persistent entrapment pathologies

David Bolton

Back in the 20th century, before physiotherapy went University, I received my training within the Royal Army Medical Corp from the Army School of Physiotherapy, qualifying in 1971. In those days and up to the late 90s the profession was very much Guru led with little credible evidence to support the invaluable experiential learning of the Military domain. Having personally experienced the likes of Mennell, Cyriax, Stoddard, Kaltenborn, McKenzie, Grieve and Maitland, to name but a few, what I have observed over the years is that when the practitioner believed in the, then technique focused approach the treatment was mostly successful. When the belief went so did the effectiveness! Maybe this was the first signs of ‘context’ importance and the DIM SIM balance. In the 80s we were a little lost realising that even Maitland didn’t have all the answers, even though he was instinctively on the right track. Having discovered NOI in the late 80s new and refreshing light began to shine on the pit of persistent pain and suffering and the era of issues in the tissues verses centralisation began to emerge. It is an honour to be part of such an organisation which has changed the lives of thousands of people since its inception. My later role within NOI is somewhat more of an ambassador ‘guesting’ on courses and giving small tutorial type lectures to whoever will listen. My belief is that true conceptual change, in reference to pain and suffering, will only happen if we equally educate the general public and shame the medical professions into listening….
