Neural Dynamic Reintegration II

2-Day Course (SEA) May 18-19th, 2018 ($500)

Neural Dynamic Reintegration II is a lab and lecture based class focused on the clinical understanding of muscle imbalance in the extremities, trunk, and full body that show up as focal dysfunction. This continuation of NDR I revisits the LE and pelvic function in movement patterns (gait being the most prevalent) and expands that evaluation to the upper body's role in movement dysfunction.

 

Explicit provocation testing will lead to the ability to visualize the local and global dysfunction that underlies so many recurrent pain problems from shoulder impingement to chronic neck strain to episodic low back pain to hip and knee problems to chronic achilles tendinitis or plantar fasciitis and how the causes of these problems interrelate. From this knowledge it becomes more apparent how to address these recurrent or chronic conditions more effectively through the removal of barriers to Range of Motion and appropriate motor programming that underlie improper exercise or activity positioning.

This class will provide the practitioner the ability to measure the movement competence of a patient through clinical tests and develop an appropriate manual treatment regimen to optimize and improve that patient's relevant lack of range of motion and aberrant motor programming, that is, to perform Neural Dynamic Reintegration effectively. This treatment is effected by addressing the lack of range of motion brought on by somatic dysfunction and aberrant reflex arcs to be followed up by retraining of the motor program loop.

Neural Dynamic Reintegration II  2-Day course

 

Friday and Saturday, 9am to 6pm

May 18-19th, 2018

14961 NE 95th St, Redmond, WA 98052

cost: $500

 

Class participants will be able to:

1. List the parameters of Neuromuscular Reeducation in treatment.

2. Test functional (weight-bearing) core strength, upper cervical function, contralateral

    upper extremity and lower extremity function and integration by using the Gait Pattern

    Recognition Flowchart.

3. Design a NMR driven rehab program for low, medium and high functioning patients

    using static and dynamic stretches and integrative techniques (Counterstrain, MET or

    NDR).

4. Identify the most common Hypertonic and Inhibited muscle pattern dysfunctions, and

    their associated signs and symptoms.

5. Describe the pathophysiology of the musculoskeletal, neural, vascular, and lymphatic

    structures secondary to faulty adaptive patterns.

6. Implement a complete care program to include: specific treatment modality selection,

    neuromuscular reeducation and exercise prescription regimes to resolve somatic

    dysfunction and restore neuromuscular patency.

Target audience: All licensed or certified healthcare providers including, but not limited to: PT, AT, DC, MT, RN, OT, and ND.

POLICY ON CANCELLATIONS AND COURSE REFUNDS

 

Pursuit PT understands that emergencies happen and that plans change; therefore we have created policies to deal with requests for refunds on courses.

 

Refunds can be requested prior to attending a course sponsored by Pursuit PT, however if you have attended the course and received your CEUs no refund will be given.

 

All classes are confirmed 30 days prior to the start date and are dependent upon sufficient registrants. Classes may be cancelled due to insufficient enrollment. Pursuit PT is not responsible for any loss of funds due to cancellation of a course.

 

A full refund will be issued if Pursuit PT cancels the course. No refund will be issued if a course is in progress and is interrupted by an Act of War or God, weather, natural disasters or issues beyond our control.

 

Cancellations will be posted on our web site and registered attendees will be notified by email.

 

Full refund will be provided if you cancel the course at least 30 business days before the course for any reason. Full refunds can be obtained up to 20 business days before a course if an emergency has occurred.

 

To receive a full refund less $100 administration fee for a class, registrant must submit request in writing 30 days prior to the start date of the Pursuit PT course.

 

After these deadlines, you will only receive a 50% refund or full credit toward a future class less a $100 administration fee.

 

If a registrant cancels after the 30-day period, the tuition less $100 administration fee may only be applied toward a future Pursuit PT course within a twelve-month period from the original cancellation date. This may only occur once within a twelve-month period. After the twelve-month period, all monies will be forfeited.
