Clinical Neurodynamics - Lower Quarter 1 | Course Recap

Updated: Feb 16, 2023

Saturday, December 10, 2022 - New York, NY

After an exciting course experience we would like to thank all of the wonderful clinicians that attended our first Clinical Neurodynamics - Lower Quarter 1 course. This was the first of multiple courses we plan to host along with our partners at Neurodynamic Solutions. We also want to extend our gratitude to Joseph Gravino for being an excellent course instructor, as well as the one and only Michael Shacklock for making a special appearance straight from the land down under.

About the Course...

This course provided a unique view into systematic treatment progressions for lumbar radiculopathy including, hip/piriformis, hamstrings and ankle and foot pain via the use of Clinical Neurodynamics for the Lower Quarter.

This course on Neurodynamics was based on Michael Shacklock's international best seller physical therapy text book, "Clinical Neurodynamics" along with the latest updates and advances. The course also featured a special appearance from Michael Shacklock himself via zoom where he proceeded to answer any of the participants questions.

The course was designed for clinicians, looking to learn many new manual techniques for the most significant neural problems seen in musculoskeletal practice. Check out some of the images from the course below.


These are a few of our favorite moments from the course:
