COURSE CONTENT

Neural Manipulation: Neuromeningeal Manipulation; An Integrative Approach to Trauma (NM1)

Course Length: 3 Days – 18 CE’s

Synopsis: This is a specialized course focusing on the impact of whiplash.

Course Highlights:

  • Study the three primary areas of trauma as they relate to whiplash: physical laws, evaluation and treatment.
  • Learn the appropriate anatomy and physiology for treatment of whiplash and trauma conditions.
  • Learn to locate and release restrictions along the meningeal system.
  • Assess injuries to the soft tissues of the cervical region and learn treatment protocols for optimal release.
  • Learn tests to determine restriction patterns of the cervicobrachial region.
  • Understand how whiplash creates restriction patterns throughout the body.
  • Identify techniques that encompass the whole body, as the whole body receives collision forces in a whiplash injury, not just the cervical spine.
  • Learn to evaluate restrictions in the lumbosacral region.
  • Discover new applications of visceral manipulation principles and techniques as they can be utilized for patients presenting whiplash and other conditions involving trauma.
  • Compare treatment sequence and tests for whiplash and traumatic injuries.

Prerequisite: Professional healthcare practitioner, student in healthcare program or graduate awaiting licensure/accreditation with experience in palpation of Craniosacral Rhythm.

Required Advance Reading: Trauma: An Osteopathic Approach by Jean-Pierre Barral, RPT, DO.

 

Neural Manipulation: Peripheral Nerve Manipulation; Upper Body (NM2)

Course Length: 3 Days – 18 CE’s

Synopsis: This course explores evaluation and treatment techniques for peripheral nerves of the upper body.

Course Highlights:

  • Explore in detail the anatomy and function of the peripheral nerves of the upper body.
  • Discover typical pain patterns that arise from dysfunction of these peripheral nerves.
  • Learn evaluation methods and treatment techniques to facilitate normal functioning of these peripheral nerves.
  • Discover various methods for releasing restrictions in nerves.
  • Explore practical integration into treatment sessions.

Prerequisite: Neural Manipulation: Neuromeningeal Manipulation (NM1) or Visceral Approach to Trauma and Whiplash (VTW).

Required Advance Reading: Manual Therapy for Peripheral Nerves by Jean-Pierre Barral, RPT, DO; and Alain Croibier, D.O.

Neural Manipulation: Brain and Cranial Nerve Manipulation (NM4)

Course Length: 3 Days – 18 CE’s

Synopsis: This course explores evaluation and treatment techniques for nerves of the brain, and cranial region.

Course Highlights:

  • Explore in detail the anatomy and function of the brain and cranial nerves.
  • Discover typical pain patterns that arise from dysfunction of the brain and cranial nerves.
  • Learn evaluation methods and treatment techniques to facilitate normal functioning of these nerves.
  • Learn differential evaluation skills to determine skull, suture and brain fixation.
  • Explore how compressions of the brain cause dysfunction in the cranial nerves.
  • Discover how intercranial pressure affects the function of the entire body, and cranial techniques to bring about normal functioning.
  • Learn practical integration into treatment sessions.

Prerequisite: Neural Manipulation:  Peripheral Nerve Manipulation; Upper Body (NM2) or Peripheral Nerve Manipulation; Lower Body (NM3) or Visceral Approach to Trauma and Whiplash II (VTWII).

Required Advance Reading: Manual Therapy for Cranial Nerves by Jean-Pierre Barral, RPT, DO; and Alain Croibier, D.O.
