Clinical Neurodynamics
Upper and Lower Quarter Lab/Practical courses
Course Description
Being the originator of the concept of neurodynamics in physiotherapy, Michael Shacklockhas expanded the concept to link with the musculoskeletal system. Based on his innovative new top rated and internationally acclaimed text, these widely hosted hands-on courses have been offered globally, in the USA, Canada, UK, Scandinavia and Nordic regions, Europe, India, South America and Australia. These practical hands-on courses take the therapist from the old concepts of neural tension to a new concept of neurodynamics.
Shacklock’s neurodynamic concept is presented clearly and methodically and offers the clinician new techniques for diagnosis and treatment of musculoskeletal problems with a neural component. The Shacklock concept helps the therapist select and perform new diagnostic and treatment techniques without provoking symptoms and progresses from the highly restricted patient to the athlete. These are illustrated with practical demonstrations and real-time imaging videos of neural movement techniques, collected exclusively by Michael Shacklock and the Neurodynamic Solutions (NDS) faculty.
Key features of the courses include:
  • lab/practical sessions with demonstrations and practicing of techniques

  • new neural testing and treatment techniques

  • new systematic diagnosis and treatment approach

  • integration of neural techniques with the musculoskeletal system

  • systematic progressions from low to high levels of performance

  • scientific support with evidence based research and real-time videos of nerve movement.


This lab/practical course offers immediate neurodynamic solutions for the therapist inmusculoskeletal practice.
