A Concept Beyond Neuromobilization

This unique new course has been developed by world-renowned authors, clinical experts, and business entrepreneurs Dr. Dimitrios Kostopoulos and Dr. Konstantine Rizopoulos. The course examines the neural tissue and its pathological manifestations using advanced diagnostic outcomes available to Physical Therapists and specialized techniques to handle peripheral and central neurofascial dysfunction.

This intensive course has a mandatory Online component and a Live Clinical Lab option and has become a great tool for the clinicians who want to take their clinical practice to a totally new level. This course is being taught by course developer Dr. Kostopoulos who uses advanced electrodiagnostic and ultrasound neuro-imaging to demonstrate the evaluation and treatment of the neural tissue.

  • Did you ever wonder how to properly diagnose carpal tunnel syndrome and effectively treat it?
  • Why many times manual physical therapy is ineffective in cervical spine pathology? What can you do to achieve 62% better outcomes?
  • What does it mean when you have a negative MRI with a positive EMG for radiculopathy and how you treat the condition?

This intensive course will answer these questions and more!

Course Description and Overview

This is an 11.5-hr online course followed by an optional 15.5-hr clinical application live onsite course designed for physical therapists, physical therapy assistants and other healthcare providers who want to enhance their evaluative skills in screening, differential diagnosis, assessment and treatment of people with neuromusculoskeletal pathology. The didactic portion of the course will present in detail the neuropathology and neurophysiological manifestations of entrapment syndromes, radiculopathies, polyneuropathies and other dysfunctions pertaining to the neural tissue. You will learn the evidence on the behavior of the neurofascial tissue as it relates to the other tissues of the body.

Learn how to interpret electrophysiological findings and neuro-imaging findings for the evaluation of the neural tissue and form a precise treatment plan and interventions based on diagnostic findings and clinical examination.

This online course with the live lab option will train the clinician for proper technique selection and application to various patient problems using neurofascial tissue principles pertaining to both the peripheral nerves as well as the central neurofascia. Unlike other courses in the area that offer no or little scientific reasoning behind the techniques, the instructors of this course present their own published research in this controversial area.

The instructors will guide you through Neuro-Ultrasound Imaging to demonstrate both the evaluation of the neural tissue as well as the behavior and movement of the neural tissue upon technique implementation.

The online portion of the program is followed by an optional live onsite clinical application lab based course for the direct application of the techniques learned during the online portion of the course.

The course will provide advanced training with immediate clinical applications dedicated to health care professionals who want to learn how to handle complicated, unresolved patient cases.

Course Objectives

Upon completion of this course, participants will be able to:

  1. Analyze the underlying causes of NeuroFascial dysfunction such as entrapment syndromes, radiculopathies, nerve compression syndromes, neuropathies, polyneuropathies, and chronic pain problems.
  2. Evaluate patient symptoms and signs to differentiate between various conditions and arrive at an accurate NeuroFascial Diagnosis.
  3. Interpret diagnostic findings from electrophysiological evaluations and neuro-imaging studies, and determine their clinical significance.
  4. Apply diagnostic findings to select the most appropriate treatment techniques.
  5. Integrate MyoFascial NeuroFascial Therapy techniques into a comprehensive treatment approach.
  6. Design and implement personalized NeuroFascial Treatment Protocols for both the Peripheral and Central Nervous Systems.
  7. Execute advanced treatment techniques for unresolved cervical and lumbar spine pathology as well as chronic pain problems.
  8. Demonstrate mastery in applying the learned techniques immediately post-training.
