Presented by Michael Shacklock and based on his innovative and internationally acclaimed, best-selling text "Clinical Neurodynamics" these widely hosted hands-on courses have been running for 20 years and are offered globally 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
► Scientifically support with evidence-based research and real-time videos of nerve movement
Dr. Michael Shacklock 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 (Australian Physiotherapy Association) for his monograph and international best-seller text book, Clinical Neurodynamics, Elsevier, Oxford, 2005.
