Mobilise – to prepare, to awaken and to move.

Noigroup’s classic, longest-running course, Mobilisation of the Nervous System, has evolved. Based on the latest evidence, the course has been updated and re-written ‘from the basic science up’. The research is compelling – the immune system’s interaction with the nervous system is critical in learning, memory, movement and sensitivity. This new understanding integrates peripheral and central processes and targets therapy towards healthy neuroimmune balance.

This comprehensive lecture and hands-on course integrates the latest research on neurodynamics and neuroimmune science to provide a clinical reasoning framework to identify those patients who will benefit from neuroimmune mobilisation. The course then updates and refines the essential practical skills to examine and manage the physical health of the nervous system – skilled, safe and appropriately timed handling techniques are covered in detail during labs and practical sessions.

Prerequisites

This course is for  health professionals and registered medical practitioners, physiotherapists, occupational therapists, clinicians with a ‘hands-on’ license.

To enhance your course outcomes, the following pre-reading is strongly recommended:

  • Butler DS (2000) The Sensitive Nervous System, Noigroup, Adelaide. (Chapters 2-5)
  • Nee RJ, Butler DS 2006 Management of peripheral neuropathic pain. Integrating neurobiology, neurodynamics and clinical evidence. Physical Therapy in Sport: 7: 36-49
  • Yirmiya R, Goshen I (2011) Immune modulation of learning, memory, neural plasticity and neurogenesis. Brain, Behav, Immun 25: 181

Objectives

This course aims to:

  • provide a basic knowledge of neuroanatomy, neurodynamics, neuroimmunology and neuropathobiology related to the manual examination of the nervous system
  • teach safe and effective diagnostic skills in the examination and interpretation of physical dysfunction of the nervous system
  • present neurodynamic movements and techniques as antigenic
  • provide new therapeutic narrative for explaining symptoms in conditions with altered neurodynamics
  • deliver a deeper understanding of known, ‘tough’ clinical presentations such as chronic nerve root problems and persistent entrapment pathologies

Instructor

Tim Beames

Tim is a pain specialist physiotherapist and pain educator living in Tunbridge Wells, UK. He’s been teaching with NOI since 2006 during which he has co-authored the Graded Motor Imagery Handbook, alongside David Butler and Lorimer Moseley.

He is the co-founder of Le Pub Scientifique, a unique learning platform connecting people interested in pain to the latest science and the world leading experts on pain. He is also co-founder of Pelvic Pain Matters, a group dedicated to improving the lives of men suffering pelvic pain.

Tim splits his time between his clinical role treating people experiencing persistent pain and helping to offer hope for recovery; teaching and mentoring healthcare professionals interested in growing as clinicians; and organising and running pain-related events.
