Full Fee: $1100inc GST.
The early Saver Price of $950 ends on the 14 Sept 2023.

Course Description

This three day course explores evaluation and treatment techniques for peripheral nerves of the upper body and explores, in detail, the anatomy and function of the peripheral nerves of the upper body.

Integrative treatment requires attention to mechanical relationships between the cranium/spine hard frame, and the dural and neural elements. NM provides approaches to address restrictions of the dural and neural components not commonly focused on with musculoskeletal symptoms.

Additionally, traumatic nerve lesions typically do not result in a recognizable, well-defined, clinical picture. Instead a broad spectrum of disturbances can be found. NM treatments change intra- and extra-neural pressure and improve sympathetic function to blood vessels due to the auto-innervation of the sympathetic ganglia and sympathetic innervation of peri-neural connective tissues, both of which are affected with treatment of fixations in the nerve sheaths.

Course Outcomes

Upon completion of this course, participants will have learned:

  • The anatomy and function of the peripheral nerves of the upper body’
  • Typical pain patterns that arise from dysfunction of these peripheral nerves;

  • Various methods for releasing restrictions in nerves;
  • Practical integration of these techniques and skills into treatment sessions.
