Neuromobilization techniques addressing nerve impingement were originally developed from research of physiotherapists Geoffrey Maitland, Michael Shacklock and David Butler. This course covers that research in-depth, with a full-color manual, videos, worksheets and supplemental reading.
These resources are bursting with colorful illustrations, demos and diagrams explaining the anatomy and function of joints, nerves and muscles. All 3 DVDs feature Erik Dalton demonstrating a Myoskeletal Alignment Therapy for neuromobilization, correcting nerve impingements and reducing inflammation.
