PERIPHERAL NERVE MOBILIZATION

Neural Mobilization

Neural mobilization, or neurodynamics, is a movement-based intervention aimed at restoring the homeostasis in and around the nervous system. It has been shown that nerves move relatively independently from their surroundings, but when the ceases to be the case, symptoms including numbness, tingling, weakness, and muscle tension can occur.

Neurodynamics is an intervention aimed at restoring this homeostasis by mobilization of the nervous system itself or the structures that surround the nerves. Neural mobilization facilitates movement between neural structures and their surroundings through manual techniques or exercise.

Studies show that neural mobilization may reduce intraneural swelling, improve circulation to the nerve, reduce pain related to thermal and mechanical changes, and help reduce the immune response following a nerve injury.

Conditions may include but are not limited to:

  • Ankle sprain
  • Carpel Tunnel Syndrome
  • Cervical and Lumbar Nerve Root Injury
  • Colles Fracture
  • Double Crush Syndrome
  • Hamstring Injury
  • Meralgia Paresthetica
  • Myelopathy
  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Thoracic Outlet Syndrome
  • Sciatica
  • Tarsal Tunnel Syndrome
  • Whiplash Associated Disorders

 

What to expect?

 

The physical therapist will first complete an initial evaluation to determine if these techniques are appropriate for you. They may test your reflexes, upper and lower limb nerve tension, sensation, and strength. They will most likely use a combination of manual neural mobilizations and give you exercises, or nerve glides, to practice at home.

If you feel you may benefit from neural mobilization, feel free to set up a detailed evaluation with one of our trained therapists.

We would love to hear from you!

  • I found DB through Amazon.Top notch provider, in the true sense of the word.I ordered a hinged elbow brace and, being at the verge of two sizes, needed extra assistance for sizing.Doug called the manufacturer and got the exact answer.When the manuf sent the brace without hinges stops, Doug mailed them to me himself.Could not have asked for anything more.I live in PA, and the transactions across the country felt seamless, bcz their service was that exceptional.They're Santa's shop for braces!

    Andrea is amazing! I have been working with her to treat my chronic migraines for six months now. She is one of the only people who have made a noticeable difference for me. And I’ve tried everything. She is so friendly and helpful. She goes out of her way to work with you and your issues. The whole DB Team is wonderful. I can’t recommend them enough.
