Neural Mobilization

A very important system of the human body is the nervous system. The nervous system is a complex sophisticated network of nerves that regulates body’s activities by carrying messages to and from the brain and spinal cord.

This nervous system is a continued structure that slides and moves as we move too. Any reason such as a spinal bulging disk, swollen joints, muscle spasm and swollen compartments that interrupt the normal movement of the neural tissue will cause pain, decreased blood supply in the nerve and displacement of the protection cover of the nerve, the myelin sheath.

Neural mobilization techniques help bring back mobility to the neural tissue by utilizing a gentle flossing-like technique aimed to freeing up a specific compromised nerve by its surrounding structures.

Neural mobilization techniques are completely painless and are applied by a Manual Physical Therapist with a specialty to treat such problems.

The following are common syndromes that can be benefited by neural mobilization physical therapy:

  • Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
  • Tennis elbow
  • Nerve root disorders
  • Spinal pain
  • Plantar fasciitis
