Neural Dynamic Reintegration I
1-Day (SEA) November 11th, 2017
(Vimeo Video On Demand)
Neural Dynamic Reintegration I is a lab and lecture based class focused on the clinical understanding of muscle imbalance in the extremities, trunk, and full body that lead to recurrent 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 I 1-Day course
Saturday 9am to 6pm
November 11th, 2017
14940 NE 95th St, Suite H, Redmond, WA 98052
Class participants will be able to:
1. List the parameters of Neuromuscular Reeducation in treatment.
2. Test 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
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.
