NME0: Neuromeningeal Explorations of Trauma in Manual Therapy
NME0 VIRTUAL Sept. 15 and Sept. 30, 2020

Teacher/Presenter:

 

Description:
Explore the impact of trauma onto the nervous system with this unique virtual neuromeningeal program.

Jean-Pierre Barral, DO, MRO(F) developed the Neural Manipulation (NM) curriculum after his Visceral Manipulation (VM) curriculum to address residual issues from traumatic injury that he wasn't able to resolve with Visceral Manipulation alone. He found that, when there is trauma to the body, both the neural and meningeal tissue of the nervous system are impacted. By gently and precisely working with the injured tissue of the Central Nervous System (CNS) and the Peripheral Nervous System (PNS), Barral was able to address the chronic, ongoing issues patients were experiencing due to the trauma. Whether you are just beginning to learn about NM or are a seasoned NM therapist, this NME Virtual Series will add to your knowledge and understanding of trauma, to help you in your treatment sessions.

Many of us have been educated to focus on the musculoskeletal system when there are hypertonic muscles or a joint fixation, and we work directly to try to resolve this. Often the same symptoms—muscle spasm and joint fixation—are still present the next time our patient comes in. If we delve deeper, we often find that the nervous system is the true source of the symptoms. Using very gentle and highly specific manual therapy, you can address issues within the neuromeningeal system to enhance the effectiveness of your treatments. Come discover the importance of the neuromeningeal system in this two-part virtual program.  

~Neuromeningeal Explorations: Anatomy and Biomechanics of the CNS; September 15
Presenter: Lisa Polec, DC, BI-D

• Explore the anatomy and biomechanics of the neuromeninges: the connective tissue that surrounds and supports the CNS.
• Discover how the CNS—specifically the cranial dura and spinal dura—is affected by trauma, particularly with collisional forces, such as whiplash.
• Consider how trauma to these specific tissues can manifest symptomatically.
• Learn how to bring this information into your practice.

~Neuromeningeal Explorations: Anatomy and Biomechanics of the PNS and its Relationship to the CNS; September 30
Presenter: Lisa Polec, DC, BI-D

• Explore the anatomy and biomechanics of the neuromeninges that surround and support the PNS.
• Discover the interplay between the neuromeninges of the CNS—cranial and spinal dura—and the PNS—plexus and peripheral nerves.
• Explore how the CNS and PNS neuromeninges behave functionally as one mechanical system.
• Discuss clinical cases that include NM techniques and how to bring this information into your practice.

This course will be recorded. You will have the ability to access this recording for approximately 1 year.
