Clinical Neurodynamic Solutions: Advanced Upper and Lower Quarter Course – Vancouver 2019

February 22 @ 8:00 am - February 25 @ 5:00 pm PST

$1295 – $1495

Please Note

This is a unique course, designed for those people who have already taken Clinical Neurodynamic Solutions Courses in the past. In 2019 and onwards, all courses will be taught in Lower and Upper Extremity modules, whereby each module will have both foundational (as previously taught) and advanced techniques. THIS COURSE, on the other hand, will be teaching and demonstrating ONLY THE ADVANCED information, applications, and techniques.

If you are attending this course, you must be able to prove that you have taken a Clinical Neurodynamic Solutions course previously with Mr Shacklock himself, not from a different instructor or approach. If you have not taken a previous NDS course with Mr Shacklock, please find those courses (Upper and Lower Modules) below.

Course Description

Being the originator of the concept of neurodynamics in physiotherapy, Michael Shacklock has expanded the concept to link with the musculoskeletal system. Based on his innovative internationally acclaimed best selling text (Clinical Neurodynamics), these widely hosted hands-on courses have been running for 20 years and are offered globally, in the USA, Canada, UK, Scandinavia and Nordic regions, Middle East, Europe, India, South America and Australia at universities, elite sports centers and hospitals. These practical hands-on courses take the therapist from the old concepts of neural tension to a new concept of neurodynamics. Shacklock’s neurodynamic concept is presented clearly and methodically and offers the clinician new techniques for diagnosis and treatment of musculoskeletal problems with a neural component. The Shacklock concept helps the therapist select and perform new diagnostic and treatment techniques without provoking symptoms and progresses from the highly restricted patient to the athlete. These are illustrated with practical demonstrations and real-time imaging videos of neural movement techniques, collected
exclusively by Michael Shacklock and the Neurodynamic Solutions (NDS) faculty.

Key features of the courses include:
‣ lab/practical sessions with demonstrations and practising of techniques
‣ new neural testing and treatment techniques
‣ new systematic diagnosis and treatment approach
‣ integration of neural techniques with the musculoskeletal system
‣ systematic progressions from low to high levels of performance
‣ scientific support with evidence based research and real-time videos of nerve movement.

This lab & practical course offers Monday-morning neurodynamic solutions for the therapist in musculoskeletal practice.

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

About the Instructor

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. 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 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 Invited Professor of the Faculty of Medicine, Barcelo University, Buenos Aires (see academic activities on ResearchGate). He is a reviewer for, and is on the International Advisory Board of, Manual Therapy journal, United Kingdom. His special interests are neurodynamics, measurement of mechanical function of the nervous system, pain and the musculoskeletal function. He continues to give invited presentations and workshops at conferences, elite sporting and sports medicine facilities, universities, hospitals and seminar hosts around the world.

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 asp
