Clinical Neurodynamics: A New System of Musculoskeletal Treatment
Author: Michael Shacklock
Publisher: Elsevier Science, Oxford | ISBN - 07506 5456 2
The book presents:
Newly conceived dysfunctions that relate the musculoskeletal system to the neural system, making use of mechanics and physiology of the nervous system true to the original concept of neurodynamics in Shacklock's paper in Physiotherapy (1995).
A new and modified movement diagram that relates foraminal dynamics to the nerve root is illustrated to help the clinician conceptualise spinal function in relation to its potential for neural consequences.
New Book translated into PortugueseA new system of diagnostic classifications which supports some aspects of adverse neural tension whilst adding new classifications such as neural sliding dysfunctions, mechanical interface dysfunctions, mechanosensitivity dysfunction and neurogenic inflammation dysfunction.
A new progressional system of physical examination and treatment that is designed to help the clinician examine neural tissues conveniently and effectively without provoking symptoms. The system also helps the clinician find the hidden neural component that is often missed because neurodynamic testing is not quite sensitive or specific enough.
Systematic progression of treatment for specific syndromes based on causative mechanisms in conditions such as the cervical and lumbar nerve root, cervicogenic headache, thoracic outlet syndrome; supinator, pronator, carpal tunnel and piriformis and tarsal tunnel syndromes, to name a few.

Moving in on Pain (1995)
Author: Michael Shacklock
Moving in on Pain was created as a record of the world's first multidisciplinary international conference on pain held by the physiotherapy profession. Held in Adelaide, 1995, it brought together the professions of physiotherapy, medicine, psychology, occupational therapy and art therapy and hosted clinicians and scientists from all over the world. Authors such as Professors Patrick Wall, Michael Cousins, George Mendelson, Anthony Wright, Jenny Strong, Mary Galea and Marcello Costa presented their cutting edge knowledge on the causes and treatment of pain. Other authors who gave papers were Dr Milton Cohen, Robert Elvey, David Butler, Helen Slater, Peter Edgelow, Michael Shacklock, Dr Patricia Roche and Louis Gifford, Dr Bill Vicenzino and Ian Beith and others.
A wide range of subjects were covered and these included neuropathic pain, placebo, thoracic outlet syndrome, neural cause of plantar fasciitis, self-efficacy and pain, outcomes of multi-disciplinary treatment of low back pain, physical examination of neural tissues, CNS circuitry and pain modulation with movement, disc hydration and back pain, mobility of the sciatic nerve bed, psychiatric and psychological aspects of pain and more.
This book is a classic momento of progress in pain within the physiotherapy profession and if you would like to purchase a copy, it is available from Elsevier Science.
