Introduction to Nerve Mobilization
Many of our clients (and many of us!) suffer from nerve compression and irritation syndromes. Nerve Mobilization uses the length, elasticity and irritability of the nervous system to guide hands on treatment. This can be very helpful in cases of obvious nerve problems such as carpal tunnel syndrome or sciatica, but can also be surprisingly effective in situations which are less obviously neutrally related. Join massage therapist Doug Alexander as he explains how nerves can give rise to symptoms and how to evaluate them. He then goes on to show how the nerve mobilization framework guides treatment.
Doug Alexander has been a massage therapist for over 20 years. He has published extensively in the massage trade literature and is the author of two Nerve Mobilization DVD’s published by Real Bodywork. Doug is a full-time professor in the Massage Therapy Program at Algonquin College as well as the president of http://www.MassageTherapyPractice.com an online CEU providing web site for massage therapists.
