Mobilise – to prepare, to awaken and to move.
NOI’s classic, longest running course, Mobilisation of the Nervous System, has evolved. Based on the latest evidence, the course has been completely updated and re-written ‘from the basic science up’. The research is compelling – the immune system via its interaction with the nervous system is a critical player 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.
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:

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
Day 1: 08.30 - Registration , 09.00 – 17.00 Lectures
Day 2: 09.00 – 16.30 Lectures
Tea, coffee and water will be provided throughout the course. For lunch, please feel free to bring your own or there are shops nearby.

Tim Beames MSc BSc MCSP, 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.
