What is neurodynamics?
Neurodynamics or neurodynamic mobilization is a physiotherapeutic method of analysis, diagnosis and treatment for the for the mobilization of the peripheral nervous system. This involves increasing the stretching, compression and gliding capacity of the nerves in their sheaths by rhythmically mobilizing a section of the nervous system or individual nerves. In the case of functional disorders, often the Slippage of the nerves damaged, which is one of the most important functions of the nervous system. These lubricity disturbances can be caused by Herniated discs, Blockades of the vertebral joints or instability of the spine are brought forth. When patients want to move their joints, but the nerve is pinched, it cannot glide, which can cause severe pain.
The aim of neurological mobilization and treatment is therefore to relax the nervous system. Relax the nervous system and balance and to regain lubricity. Thereby Nerves targeted mobilized, to loosen the affected nerve tissue.
When and how is Neurodynamics used?
The neurodynamic mobilization or method is used in case of traumas, tensions, pain, sensory disturbances and sports injuries used and leads to effective results. It can be used for orthopedic and neurological diseases or injuries, as well as for Paraplegia, after strokes or cerebral hemorrhages. help Neurodynamic therapy is often combined with other forms of therapy, such as manual therapy or heat treatment.
The treatment is carried out by an objective mobility test, which checks the peripheral nerves checked and mechanically freed. The first stage of mobilization of the nervous system is called “Slider technique” and the second “Tensioner technique. Using special exercises, the nerves are supported in their mobility and made less sensitive.
