A Study of Neurodynamics: The Body’s Living Alarm

For: PT, OT, PTA, OTHER


Neurodynamics is the physical ability of the nervous system allowing it to move, slide, glide and accommodate human movement and function. Compared to more traditional manual therapy models focusing on joints and muscles, neurodynamics is new and vitally important in restoring normal movement and function. To understand the physical movement of nerves, neuroscience knowledge is explored to understand how pain works from a neurobiological and neurophysiological perspective.

Course Objectives/Outcomes

  • Review current evidence and understanding of neuroanatomy and neurogenic pain related to evaluation and treatment of neurodynamics through attending lecture and reviewing course manual.
  • Locate and palpate peripheral nerves in upper limb and lower extremity on lab partners using course manual and with instructor assistance.
  • Demonstrate upper limb, trunk, lumbar and lumbosacral neurodynamic tests performed on lab partners after demonstration from instructor(s) and with use of manual.
  • Differentiate neurodynamic treatment principles for various clinical examples based on lecture material and course manual in class discussion.
  • Demonstrate upper limb, trunk, lumbar and lumbosacral neurodynamic treatments performed on lab partners after demonstration from instructor(s) and with use of manual.
  • Choose appropriate neurodynamic test and treatment for clinical application to at least 1 of 8 written case studies presenting to class for discussion using course teachings and course manual.
