Michael received his graduate qualification at the Auckland School of Physiotherapy, New Zealand, in 1980.   He completed a Graduate Diploma in Advanced Manipulative Therapy in 1989 and converted this to a Masters degree at the University of South Australia in 1993. Michael Shacklock proposed the concept of neurodynamics in 1995 with his paper in the British journal Physiotherapy. Michael is an active clinician, has 35 years of experience in treating patients and is recognized as an international leader in the diagnosis and treatment of musculoskeletal disorders with a neural aspect.

Course Highlights:

  • The courses by Neurodynamic Solutions are based on the philosophy of helping therapists develop their clinical skills and applying them to their patients. This course therefore contains approximately 65% practical and 35% theory.
  • Neurodynamic principles applied specifically to the upper quarter, including the cervical spine, shoulder/brachial plexus and other upper limb nerves at the elbow and wrist
  • Classifications of structures and mechanisms for diagnosis and treatment
  • Neurodynamic sequencing - a mechanism that can be used to make neurodynamic technique more specific than in the past
  • How to differentiate nerve from other tissues with mechanical testing and make diagnosis and treatment more specific than before.
  • System of technique progression, hypersensitivity problems, subtle and hidden neural component and sensitised treatments
  • Directing treatment at pathophysiology, progression from pathophysiology to pathomechanics
  • Cervical nerve root foraminal opening and closing dysfunctions, neural tension dysfunction, combined neural tension and reduced closing dysfunctions
  • Lateral elbow pain, carpal tunnel syndrome
