Clinical Neurodynamics

The course "Neurodynamic Manual Therapy" is key training for learning about the latest updates on the relationship between the peripheral nervous system and musculoskeletal pain. The latest scientific publications will be discussed and advanced techniques in the management of pain of neural origin will be taught.
The course "Neurodynamic Manual Therapy" offers a global, detailed and well-structured vision of neurodynamics in order to integrate the treatment of dysfunctions of the nervous system in the daily practice of the manual physical therapist.
At the end of the course the physiotherapist will have the most updated tools to assess and solve the dysfunctions of the locomotor system of neural origin.

Objectives

Acquire the knowledge and skills necessary to master the concept of Neurodynamic Therapy

Learn the clinical reasoning, differential diagnosis and treatment planning of neurodynamic dysfunctions.

Master the Manual Neurodynamic Therapy in routine clinical practice

Know the latest scientific evidence on neurodynamics

Who is it for?

Graduates in Physiotherapy and 4th year students of the Bachelor Degree in Physiotherapy
