Neurofascial Manipulation for the Lower Extremity

  • North Seattle area Seattle, WA 98177 (map)

It may surprise you to learn that some of the hard and tender knots we've furiously been working on are actually swollen and potentially inflamed and tethered nerves. Neural mobilization skills will dramatically increase your level of results and set you apart. You will learn to work directly with the nerves and superficial fascia to restore joint mobility and decrease pain. The work is based in part on concepts from JP Barral, Alain Crobier, and Don Hazen, DC.  

We will learn to slow down, refine our touch of the superficial layers and palpate and release several nerves in the hip, leg, and lower back. You will learn how tethered cutaneous nerves contribute to low back pain and pelvic asymmetry, and learn a set of specific techniques for release, differentiation, and repositioning of the nerve fields. Some of the commonly tethered nerves you will learn to treat will include the cluneal, iliohypogastric, lateral femoral cutaneous, posterior femoral cutaneous, and saphenous nerves. We will also discuss concepts of fibromyalgia, central sensitization and neurogenic inflammation.
