Neural Dynamic Reintegration© is a 2-hand technique that relies on palpatory and provocation test feedback obtained during stimulation of autonomically innervated structures. This feedback guides appropriate and effective treatment to undermine aberrant reflex arcs that cause autonomic dysregulation that often result in pain and specific clinical symptomatology including a lack of serous mucous production or chronically increased or decreased local blood flow.
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.
Class participants will be able to:
1. List the parameters of NeuroDynamic Reintegration in treatment.
2. Test functional (weight-bearing) core strength, upper cervical, contralateral upper extremity and lower extremity function and integration by using the Gait Pattern Recognition Flowchart.
3. Use NDR for low, medium and high functioning patients using static and dynamic stretches and integrative techniques (Counterstrain, MET or NDR).
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 caer program to include: specific treatment modality selection, Neural Dynamic Reintegration and appropriate stretching / exercise program to resolve somatic dysfunction and restore neuromuscular function.
