A variety of problems arise when nerves become impinged or trapped in key joints throughout the body. Compression of nerves in the body’s peripheral nervous system can lead to numbness, motor weakness, muscle spasms, pain, and the development of protective scar tissue.
With a professional level of understanding of neuromuscular anatomy, you can easily begin to correct these problems for their clients. 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.
The Treating Trapped Nerves course is part of the MMT Certification requirements. Upon completion, you’ll be able to address a variety of pain and mobility problems caused by nerve impingements in the body’s joints.
