PTs have lots of methods to improve range of motion in their clients. Some use tools, some take a while, some require the PT to be there. One of the fastest, easiest and safest ways to improve mobility in preparation for a session is neural mobilisation. And yep, your clients can safely perform these on their own. In this session you will explore the wonderful world of neuro-mechanics. A variety of effective techniques will be explained and practiced so that you can get started with your clients immediately.
• Identify the key physiological and biomechanical functions of nerves • Explore the principles of neuromobility • Examine positions of tension and positions of release • Identify the risk factors for neural ischemia • Find out why the word stretch is such a crap word when it comes to the nervous system. • Develop guidelines for targeted neural mobilisers for clients • Practice key techniques for the upper and lower body
