A 4-Day Immersive Experience

Come to Colorado Springs and learn like never before.

Led by the innovator of Neurodynamics, Michael Shacklock, and world-class educator/dissector, Dr. Kathy Dooley, this course will lead students to a true level of mastery over the assessment and treatment of the peripheral nervous system.

On each of the 4 days, students will begin in the clinic, learning Advanced Neurodynamics from Michael Shacklock. After a lunch break and some fresh air, students will prepare for an afternoon in the dissection lab with Dr Kathy Dooley, where they will dissect nerve paths, study anatomical variants, and demonstrate neurodynamics techniques in vivo.

Students will gain the ability to visualize and demonstrate their techniques, as well as study the intricacies of nerve movement, all under the guidance of a professional dissector and the innovator of the entire field.

Are you ready for NDS Level 2?

ShacklockNDS_LQ_Featured

The morning of each day will be spent learning NDS Level 2. This advanced course is a combo of Upper Quarter and Lower Quarter Level 2 courses, taught by Mr. Shacklock himself. In order to participate, you must have completed UQ1 and LQ1.

The NDS Level 2 portion of this experience will consist of 4 hours of pre-study online, and 16 hours in-person (4 hours per day in the mornings).

Welcome to Level 2: Advanced Neurodynamic Solutions

This course takes neurodynamics further into less recognized neural problems and more advanced concepts related to nerve movement and exercises in relation to the musculoskeletal system.

In 1985 he moved to Adelaide, Australia, working at the Royal Adelaide Hospital and private practices around Adelaide. He completed a Graduate Diploma in Advanced Manipulative Therapy in 1989 and converted this to a Masters degree at the University of South Australia in 1993. 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.
