What is neural mobilisation?
It’s a truth well acknowledged that your joints need to move in tandem with the contractions and stretches of your muscles. However, your nerve tissue also needs to be able to move unimpeded. When neural tissue is trapped or restricted, it can cause considerable pain and tension that in turn can limit your movement.
One of the only techniques at your physiotherapists disposal that doesn’t involve stretching (as it can damage the nerves), neural mobilisation includes a thorough assessment to discover potential structures that may be impeding your nerves. They then work to retest your neurodynamics until full neural mobility is restored.
Which conditions can you treat with nerve mobilisation?
A wide range of chronic pain conditions can be effectively treated with neural mobilisation techniques, including back pain, sciatica, neck and shoulder pain, carpal tunnel syndrome, tennis elbow and pinched nerves.
