A 2-day seminar available through Hands-On Seminars is designed to teach participants the principles and treatments of neural mobilization and proprioceptive training.
The “Neuromobilization Techniques & Proprioceptive Training” seminar is scheduled to be held at various locations beginning January 2016.
According to the Hands-On Seminars website, PT-03 teaches extensively the neuromobilization and proprioceptive evaluative and treatment principles. It is also intended to help the therapist achieve successful outcomes from their treatments.
The approach, the site says, integrates neurophysiological, neurodynamic, and proprioceptive evaluation principles along with effective treatment methods in a systematic and comprehensive manner.
The scientific background and methods taught reportedly use an evidence-based model with previously conducted research and techniques. The course’s content, the site notes, reflects the teachings of Dr Bob Elevey, Dr David Butler, Dr Michael Shacklock, Dr John Upledger, and Dr Vladimir Jands.
The course also blends the cumulative clinical experience of Dr Dimitrios Kostopoulos and Dr Konstantine Rizopoulos, authors of The Manual of Trigger Point & Myofascial Therapy and founders of Hands-On Seminars. The course contains extensive lab sessions of all evaluation and treatment techniques presented, the site adds.
Course objectives include presenting and discussing general neurophysiological and neurodynamic principles of the peripheral and central nervous systems; presenting the evidence and neurodynamic testing; discussing classification models of neural pathology; demonstrating and practicing the neurodynamic evaluation and learning how to classify neural pathology; and demonstrating and practicing neuromobilization techniques for the spine.
Additionally objectives for the course, the site notes, include demonstrating and practicing neuromobilization techniques for the upper and lower extremities; discussing the evidence, theory and physiological mechanisms of the central neurofascia; demonstrating and practicing evaluation methods for the central neurofascia; demonstrating and practicing basic treatment methods for the central neurofascia; and discussing the evidence, theory and physiological mechanisms of the Proprioceptive system.
Also, upon completion of the course, participants will learn to demonstrate and practice Proprioceptive evaluation methods, as well as demonstrate and practice proprioceptive therapy techniques.
The site notes that the course is appropriate for PTs, PTAs, OTs, OTAs, Chiros, LMTs, ATCs, and physicians.
