Nerves Have Feelings Too: Neurodynamics of the Upper Extremity
Integrating a comprehensive neurological movement assessment and treatment can return patients to optimal function quicker by restoring connection between the nervous and musculoskeletal systems. Neurodynamics can be used in the treatment of pathologies including carpal tunnel syndrome or lateral epicondylitis. Assessing neurodynamics during evaluations can be used to differentiate between musculoskeletal pain and neurological symptoms that may be the result of compression, tension, or restriction of the nerves. The purpose of this learning lab is to present the assessment and treatment of upper extremity Neurodynamics, and to provide clinical outcomes for clinicians to incorporate the use of Neurodynamics into practice.
