NOI Group Mobilisation Of The Nervous System

Course Description

A comprehensive course on the diagnosis and management of physical dysfunction of the nervous system. With plenty of practical work and the latest neurobiology, clinicians will be able to rapidly merge the material into all existing manual therapy frameworks.

Now in its 23rd edition, this has been one of the world’s most popular NOI courses for many years.  This classic lecture and practical course, now in its 20th edition and updated every 6 months, continues to be extremely popular worldwide.

All NOI courses are supported by quality workbooks, graphics and post course follow up.  We use modern pain sciences to provide a clinically relevant understanding of the physical health issues of the entire nervous system. This means consideration of the molecular and homuncular targets of our therapy. We integrate this knowledge using a clinical reasoning framework and advanced manual assessment and management options. Skilled reasoning is evidence based medicine at its best.

Neurodynamics is a new science. This course offers a fresh understanding and management strategies for common syndromes such as plantar fasciitis, tennis elbow, nerve root disorders, carpal tunnel syndromes and spinal pain. Innovative management tools involve conservative decompression of nerves, various neural mobilising techniques and the new patient education techniques which emerge from neurodynamics and pain sciences.

Course aims

  1. To provide a basic knowledge of neuroanatomy, neurodynamics and pathobiology related to the manual examination of the nervous system.
  2. To integrate the sciences of clinical reasoning, neurodynamics and neuroscience.
  3. To provide safe and effective diagnostic skills in the examination and interpretation of physical dysfunction of the nervous system.
  4. To apply these skills to patient management by clinical reasoning skills.
    To engage in a forum to critically analyze aspects of present day manual therapy
