Continuing education workshop with Steve Evanko September 22, 23rd

Neurofascial Manipulation for the Lower Extremity

It may surprise you to learn that some of the hard and tender knots we've furiously been working on are actually tethered, swollen, and inflamed nerves. This 1.5-day class will introduce you to the research, concepts, and skills behind neurofascial manipulation– working directly with the nerves and superficial fascia to restore mobility and decrease pain– and allow time to apply what you've learned on the legs and hips. Nerves control tissue tone, while tethered and overstretched nerves create pain and inflammation.

We will discuss concepts of neurogenic inflammation, ectopic firing, central sensitization, and fibromyalgia. The work is based in part on concepts from JP Barral, Alain Crobier, and Don Hazen, DC. Direct engagement of the neurofascia and skilled use of neural mobilization skills will dramatically increase your level of results and set you apart.

You will learn to work directly with the nerves and superficial fascia to restore joint mobility and decrease pain. We will learn to slow down, refine our touch of the superficial layers and palpate and release several nerves in the hip, leg, and lower back. You will learn how tethered cutaneous nerves contribute to low back pain and pelvic asymmetry, and learn a set of specific techniques for release, differentiation, and repositioning of the nerve fields. We will also discuss concepts of fibromyalgia, central sensitization and neurogenic inflammation.
