Description

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.

Pre-requisites

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

Objectives

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

Ben Boyd

Ben is currently an Associate Professor at Samuel Merritt University in Oakland, California, where he primarily teaches in the Musculoskeletal Patient/Client Management and Capstone course series. He has been teaching courses on peripheral nervous system anatomy, biomechanics, clinical evaluation and intervention since 2004 and he joined the NOI US teaching faculty in 2013.

Ben originally graduated from the joint program at the University of California, San Francisco and San Francisco State University (UCSF/SFSU) with a Masters of Science in Physical Therapy in 2002, returning in 2008 to earn his Doctor of Physical Therapy Science degree. He has worked as an outpatient Physical Therapist in multiple practice settings within the San Francisco Bay Area, seeing patients with a variety of neuromusculoskeletal complaints.  He is particularly interested in ongoing, persistent pain.  He received certification as an Orthopaedic Clinical Specialist through the American Physical Therapy Association in 2008. 

Ben’s research involves examination of the peripheral nervous system and intervention strategies for neuropathic pain, including the effects of Diabetes Mellitus on the mechanosensitivity of the nervous system and the impact on movement.  His most recent research endeavour is leading a team exploring the influence of breast cancer treatments on the mechanosensitivity of the nervous system as well as alterations in body image and perception.

Ben grew up in the East Bay and continues to enjoy the rich diversity of cultures, foods, events, and outdoor recreational activities that the Bay Area has to offer.

“Great speaker, very knowledgeable about the course material and evidence-based on other areas. Was able to answer participants questions well.”

“Excellent, knowledgeable, experienced instructor who is very approachable and thoughtful when answering questions in the class. Great job!”

Ben was a fantastic presenter. He was very personable and approachable, answering questions in a helpful and discussion based manner.”

“Ben is an excellent clinical educator. Really appreciated watching him work with the group and pitching things to various levels for the different participants. Great to see adult learning in action”
