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

Michel Coppieters has long been intrigued by neuropathic pain. He had the opportunity to research this topic during his doctoral studies at the University of Leuven in Belgium, and later as a post-doc and academic at The University of Queensland in Brisbane, Australia. He directed the Neuropathic Pain Research Group, which aimed to (1) increase the evidence for the clinical diagnosis and management of patients with neuropathic pain, and (2) gain a better insight in the pathophysiology of neuropathies.
Following three years as Professor of Musculoskeletal Physiotherapy and Program Director of the Master of Science in Musculoskeletal Physiotherapy Sciences in Amsterdam, The Netherlands, he returned to Australia in 2017 and is now Professor at Griffith University. He continues to lecture and research the ‘Neurobiology of pain’ and the ‘Clinical diagnosis and management of patients with neuropathies’.
Michel presents frequently at national and international conferences and has published widely on the topic of neuropathic pain and neurodynamics. Delivering NOI courses is an ideal way to disseminate new findings and trends directly to clinicians.
