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
