Nerve Mobilization Avon, CT physical therapy

Neural Mobilization

Everyone is aware of the importance of joints to move freely and muscles to move freely and stretch. But nerve tissue also needs to move freely and unimpeded. If your neural tissue is impeded in some way from movement then symptoms of pain, injury, compromised nerve function, and disability can ensue. The nerve could be the limiting factor in a group of different tissues that are asked to move. Therefore causing pain from being stretched and tightening everything around it causing more symptoms.

Neural Mobilization can be beneficial for various disorders such as:

  • Lower Back Pain & Sciatica
  • Headaches & Migraines
  • Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
  • Joint Pain
  • Digestive Disorders
  • Post-operative Scar Tissue Pain
  • Swallowing Dysfunctions
  • Thoracic Outlet Syndrome
  • Whiplash Injuries
  • Birth Injuries
  • Neuralgia & Neuritis
  • Tendinitis
  • Sprains & Traumatic Lesions
  • Concussion & Traumatic Brain Injuries
  • Tethered Cord
  • Developmental delay
  • Sensory Integration Disorders
  • Autism
  • And More

Neural Mobilization Techniques and Neural Tissue Tension Techniques (NTT) examine the relationship of a nerve either in the body or spine to the structures around it including bones, connective tissue, muscles, organs, blood vessels, joints, tendons, and ligaments. It then frees these restrictions. It addresses the central nervous system inside the spine to also clear restrictions and allows stretch to the nervous system. Neural Mobilization and Neural Tissue tension (NTT) will assess nerves in the arms and legs that are restricted leading to symptoms and create freedom These techniques will both address the local restriction as well as the effect those local fixations have on the rest of the body, therefore, relieving more global patterns of pain, injury, dysfunction, and disability. Also, facilitate nerve conductivity and local/systemic responsiveness

A nerve only functions correctly when it is able to move freely within its surrounding structures and then be able to elongate in itself. It is vital for a nerve to have this freedom to adapt to mechanical loads, elongation, sliding, compression, and cross-sectional change allowing us to do what we need to do every day.

Neural Mobilization is a very important part of a treatment plan and can help a great deal especially when there are nervous system symptoms.our licensed physical therapists offer Nerve Mobilization to heal the relevant pain of patients
