NFM Neurofascial Mobilisation for the Lower Extremity LE1: The Sciatic Pathway

Do you understand neural tension? How can you harness your fascial skill set, applying it to resolve neural tension?

Often by the time you see a client, they’re well on their way to neural dysfunction. Why not intervene much sooner and eliminate neural tension before it arrives in this state?

For the nervous system to move normally, it must successfully execute three primary mechanical functions; withstand tension, slide in its container, and be compressible. Shacklock 2006

In this short workshop I will offer to you the base neurodynamic tests: Slump and SLR; how to differentiate muscular tension from neural tension along the sciatic pathway, demonstrating basic technique to relax the sciatic nerve which will change muscular tension.

Join me in upgrading your skill set and learn that once you understand how to strategically intervene, you can release nerves with very little effort, your outcomes will soar!
