"DR. DEAN SAVED MY LIFE"by Sam Moore
ARE YOU BEHIND THE CURVE IN YOUR MANUAL AND REHAB TREATMENT?
Emerging evidence suggests that traditional “myofascial trigger point” (MFTP) therapy may not be addressing the true cause of observed muscle tension and pain.
A paradigm shift is occurring in manual therapy which suggests that MFTPs are a neurological phenomenon. (Quintner, 2014) We will show you manual therapy techniques that incorporate this change in paradigm.
Traditional neurological assessment evaluates for paresthesia and weakness, however, in those with true radiculopathy, systematic reviews suggest “...nearly 31% had no signs of weakness and up to 45% had no sensory deficits detected on clinical examination” (Nezari, 2013)
With NCA, we will show you how to THOROUGHLY assess the neurological system to identify distressed neurology at multiple levels.
