What Are Neuromobilization Techniques?
Neuromobilization is a technique that we utilize to treat nerves that may be adhered, irritated, or compressed in the surrounding tissues. Many patients that have been unresponsive to other treatments and present with a history of referred symptoms like pain, numbness, or tingling into the arms or legs may respond to neuromobilization. Every patient that presents with referred symptoms or pain that has been unresponsive to localized treatment receives a complete neural dynamics evaluation. Neurodynamic testing is a way for us to determine the extent of nerve involvement and the proper treatment to minimize and resolve your issue.
Neuromobilization Treatment in Bellevue, NE
By mobilizing a nerve, we can determine, in combination with manual traction and sensitizing maneuvers, how and where your nerve is most irritable. We can then perform neuromobilization techniques utilizing controlled neural tension maneuvers to mobilize the nerve up and down. Think of this as flossing the nerve involved through and around the surrounding tissue. Our nerves do not have very much elastic properties so when they become irritated and adhered, instead of stretching the tissue and further aggravating the nerve we are able to floss the nerve back and forth which in turn minimize nerve-related pain.
Take a look at the video below of a neuromobilization of the sciatic nerve. Neuromobilization can be used for pain/tingling radiating down the leg or pain/tingling radiating down the arm.
