Description:

In this exciting 5 contact hour interactive course the clinician will learn ways to evaluate proximal problems that may result in distal symptoms. These evaluation strategies will help determine if the symptoms are distal or if there is a complex of upper quadrant problems such as: neck, shoulder, postural or scapular dysfunction. This course will describe the neural continuum as well as special tests to determine what nerve structure is involved. Emphasis will be placed on understanding and performing upper extremity neurodynamic testing. The student will also be exposed to incorporating both clinical and home treatment strategies. Note: This course provides conceptual preparation to seek additional training, and does not provide you a mentored hands-on skills session. Please seek additional experience, with a mentor, to perform hands-on skills. Mixed level learning course - Instructional Methods include PowerPoint presentation, lecture, and video to enhance understanding. Upon successful completion of the examination (80%) your certificate will be sent via email

Objectives:

  • To provide basic information on the mechanics and physiology of the nervous system which is essential for movement of the upper extremity
  • To provide a basic understanding of neuroanatomy and neurodynamics as they relate to neuro gliding in the upper extremity
  • To describe the neural continuum and ways to test the continuum in the upper extremity
  • To differentiate between neural and new neural tissues
  • To view the performance of techniques by utilizing “sliders” or “tensioners” so that movement is created
  • To identify anatomical and palpable areas in the upper extremity so the course of the nerve may be determined
  • To identify the characteristics of pain mechanism-
      • Nociceptive Pain
      • Peripheral Neurogenic
      • Central Sensitizations
  • To identify the relationship of neuromusculoskeletal dysfunction in the upper extremity
  • Review how to carry out both subjective and physical neurodynamic test in the upper extremity
      • Describe pain syndrome
      • Review the relationship between pain and myofascial trigger points
      • Identify points of neuro movement limitations
  • Review the relationship of neurovascular and musculoskeletal dysfunction so a treatment strategy can be developed
  • Review how to evaluate the subjective examinations and physical examination to determine an appropriate treatment program for home use

Reviews

Ms. Stralka is extremely knowledgeable on this topic! However, at times she was a little hard to understand, as she contradicted herself on several occasions. I learned quite a bit and look forward to reviewing the material several times to really allow it to resonate. It was a tough topic and quite a bit of helpful info was relayed.
 
   
This course was very thorough, but very dry. The presenter was excellent and well informed. I learned a lot, but think I will choose courses that are broken into shorter segments in the future.
