Neurodynamics is a specialisation that focuses on the treatment of nervous tissue disorders. In addition to joints, muscles and tendons, nerves also need to move with the body. It is therefore of great importance that the nervous system can move freely and resist mechanical forces generated by physical postures and movements.
This is made possible by the mechanical and physiological properties of the nervous system and the interaction between the two. This mobility of the nervous system is called neurodynamics. If this mechanism fails, the nervous system is no longer able to function undisturbed, which may be accompanied by peripheral neurogenic pain (radiating pain to, for example, arms or legs). A neurodynamic treatment may then be indicated. The neurodynamic treatment method is applied by the Manual therapist and the osteopath.
