Learn clinical Neurodynamic assessment, diagnosis and treatment techniques with Michael Shacklock.
UPPER QUARTER 1 COURSE (13-14 February 2020, host at APPI Kensal Rise, London) focus on neurodynamics applied to the cervical spine, shoulder, elbow and wrist.
LOWER QUARTER 1 COURSE (15-16 FEBRUARY 2020, host at UCLH London) focuses on neurodynamics applied to the lumbar spine, hip and piriformis syndrome, hamstring injury and foot/heel pain.
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.
ABOUT THE COURSE:
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.
This course will cover: concept of neurodynamics, sequencing of neurodynamic tests, neuropathodynamics, physical examination, diagnosis, treatment and treatment progressions for the upper limb.
This course can be taken as 4 days course (Upper and Lower quarter ) or 2 separate modules Upper or Lower Quarter course.
TUTOR: Michael Shacklock DipPhysio, MAppSc, FACP
Michael received his graduate qualification at the Auckland School of Physiotherapy, New Zealand, in 1980. He worked in public hospitals in the medical, surgical, paediatrics, orthopaedics, geriatrics, intensive care and burns areas around New Zealand before being employed in private practices, treating spinal and sports injuries in Nelson with Michael Monaghan and Auckland with Margaret Franklin.
He was awarded a Fellow of the Australian College of Physiotherapists (Australian Physiotherapy Association) for his monograph and international best-seller text book, Clinical Neurodynamics, Elsevier, Oxford, 2005. In addition to his neurodynamics book, he has published two other books, Moving in on Pain (Elsevier) and Biomechanics of the Nervous System: Breig Revisited. He also authored, co-authored and mentored numerous research studies, editorials, commentaries and clinical papers in international peer reviewed journals articles which have garnered many international awards, including Visiting Professor of the Faculty of Medicine, Barcelo University, Buenos Aires (see academic activities on ResearchGate).
He was a member of the International Advisory Board of the journal Musculoskeletal Theory and Practice (formerly Manual Therapy), United Kingdom and is an Associate Editor of the Journal of Manual and Manipulative Therapy, USA. Michael presents keynote addresses and invited conference lectures, trains staff at elite sports medicine facilities and sports clubs, universities, hospitals and private seminars around the world.
His special interests are neurodynamics, measurement of mechanical function of the nervous system, pain and the nervous system and musculoskeletal function. His most valued interest is how to synthesise science and clinical practice using evidence and reasoning. Michael is an active clinician, has 35 years of experience in treating patients and is recognised as an international leader in the diagnosis and treatment of musculoskeletal disorders with a neural aspect.
