- 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

An experienced NOI Instructor in the UK, Ben has taught EP, MONIS and GMI courses in the UK & Europe since 2008. His background as a physiotherapist involves primary, secondary and tertiary care settings. The majority of Ben’s experience is with people who have complex, persistent pain presentations. Currently Ben works in primary care for Virgincare (Bath and Northeast Somerset, UK) as professional lead for physiotherapy and clinical specialist physiotherapist in pain management.
Ben’s PhD at the University of the West of England was in painful diabetic neuropathy, exploring whether this group of people could benefit from the pain management approaches which are relatively common in the MSK pain world, but not in the diabetic world.
You can find Ben on twitter (@ben_davies42), although he tends to use his free time riding two wheels (road + gravel = groadie?) or getting back out into the mountains.
