Course Objectives –
- Thorough understanding of the clinical anatomy and neurophysiological structure of the PNS
- Clinical relevant understanding of the anatomy of brachial, lumbar and sacral plexus’s.
- Reaction of peripheral nerves to compression and environmental factors that would increase the susceptibility of a nerve to compressive forces.
- The relationship of cortical hemisphericity to the development, propagation and maintenance of various peripheral nerve vascular and compressive lesions.
- The Use of Pulse Oximetry as a clinical tool to measure vasculature influences on peripheral nerve compressive syndromes and as a measure of dysautonomia
- Understanding of the pathophysiology associated with the following peripheral nerve lesions, their differential diagnosis and their conservative management:
- Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
- Prontor Teres Syndrome
- Cubitel Tunnel Syndrome
- Compressive Lesions involving the Radial Nerve
- Cervical Root Lesions
- Compressive Root Lesions involving the Lumbar and Sacral Plexus
- Tarsal Tunnel Syndrome
- Tibial Nerve Lesions at the Fibular Head
- Piriformis Syndromes
- Sciatic Nerve Lesions
- Lateral Femoral Cutaneous Nerve Lesions
- Obturator Nerve Lesions
- The understanding of the use of manipulative and non manipulative modalities in the treatment of peripheral and central nerve lesions in the hemispheric model of brain activity.
