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!

    I've known Adrea for over 30 years, and have had her as a therapist for several different issues ranging from lower back to post ACL surgery therapy. I've followed her from several different practices because she knows what she's doing. Their office appearantly has a great parctice of hiring quality people as well. I have reluctantly been seeing Jennifer for the past 2 weeks due to Adrea's full schedule, and I am absolutely delighted with even the early results to an IT Band and torn meniscus issue. It's the first time in months that I have been able to walk without the aid of a cane. I'm looking forward to seeing the results of the upcoming weeks.

    Before I met Andrea, I was receiving counterstrain therapy at a different location. When that therapist retired, she recommended me to Andrea, and I haven't looked back! Nobody else has been able to so effectively treat my wide range of issues (everything from hypermobility to severe neck issues caused by a car crash) with such a friendly caring attitude! You can tell she truly cares about the health and well-being of all of her patients, and I highly recommend her to anybody seeking physical therapy or even pain relief from any issue. You won't regret it!

    I have been going to her for over five years now. Her style is to use strain and counterstrain techniques combined with strengthening exercises to best stabilize and strengthen your body. She listens to each of your concerns and can treat both the entire body and/or just a specific area. It is fascinating to feel the instantaneous relief as she works on me, and I always walk out the door feeling 10 times better than I walked in.

  • The office staff are very welcoming and the 2 therapists I've seen are excellent. I really like the strain/counter strain modality they use. I've experience a lot of physical therapy and my results are much better with this technique. They also make use of the BEMER technology for increased circulation/blood flow to support treatment results.

    I definitely recommend Dynamic Bracing & Physical Therapy. They are well organized and efficient in all areas including insurance processing and therapy.
    My Physical Therapist, Jesse Dunne, did a great job of explaining what my problem was with my back. She gave me exercises to do at home and did her “magic” to make my back pain free.
    She also put on classes for runners to help with our form, strength and agility. Jesse really knows her stuff. I guess that’s why she has a Doctor of Physical Therapy after her name.

    What a positive experience. I was blown away, with how willing to help me they were. I have an old brace, and wanted to tune it up. everyone in town, could care less, but they not only took it on, but made me feel respected. My new brace this year will come from them, no matter what.
