Upper Quarter 1 Course Information
Michael Shacklock proposed the concept of neurodynamics in 1995 with his paper in the British journal Physiotherapy in which various scientific cornerstones formed a key aspect of clinical practice in physiotherapy and physical therapy neurodynamics practice.
This has been developed on in his book Clinical Neurodynamics, 2005, Elsevier, Oxford in which the whole body is dealt with in diagnosis and treatment of many musculoskeletal syndromes with a neural component.
The courses by Neurodynamic Solutions are based on the philosophy of helping therapists develop their clinical skills and applying them to their patients. This course therefore contains approximately 65% practical and 35% theory.
