NME1: Neuromeningeal Explorations and Clinical Applications of NM1
NME1 VIRTUAL Sept. 15, 21 and 30, 2020



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 VM 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.

Through this Neuromeningeal Exploration Series, the NM Teachers share their decades of experience and knowledge to assist you in delving deeper into your Neural Manipulation studies. Expanding upon the NM curriculum, this NME Series will have a profound affect on your ability to apply NM with your patients.

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

When working with patients who have a fixated joint or a muscle spasm, we may look to the musculoskeletal system as the potential source. However, 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.

• 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: Clinical Applications for NM1; September 21
Kenneth I. Frey P.T., CST-D, BI-D and Annabel Mackenzie R.S.T., BI-D

• Explore clinical applications of NM to help resolve common clinical complaints such as neck pain, low back pain, shoulder problems and headache.
• View practical demonstrations of NM depending on the needs of the patient.
• Discuss clinical cases that include NM1 techniques.
• 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
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.

NOTE: The BI teachers have such a depth of knowledge, which they can't fit into the core curriculum classes. They developed these NME classes to be able to delve deeper into the anatomy and physiology, as well as the integration of NM. The teachers hear from the students that you want more of how to integrate the work and how to maximize your skills, and those are key things the teachers kept in mind when developing these virtual programs.

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