LEARN HOW TO IDENTIFY, ASSESS AND TREAT PERIPHERAL NERVE ENTRAPMENTS USING FAKTR CONCEPTS.
About the course:
The didactic portion of the class begins with a brief review of the FAKTR Rehab System Course before diving into the latest evidence of peripheral nerve entrapments. The upper and lower extremity peripheral nerve entrapments will be taught, followed by demonstrations of how to treat these nerve entrapments using the 5 Concepts of FAKTR. Those attending will receive extensive instruction in pre and post-treatment evaluation and assessment. After the initial assessment, they will receive hands-on training utilizing instrument-assisted soft tissue mobilization (IASTM), myofascial decompression with cupping, compression flossing utilizing compression bands, nerve flossing, and hands-on techniques with rehabilitation exercises. Attendees will learn how to incorporate a wide variety of rehabilitative exercises for each area of treatment, most of which will be able to be used as a take home exercise program and others performed while manual treatment is being applied. Instruction will primarily include the upper and lower extremity neuromusculoskeletal system, but will also include the cervical region and lumbopelvic region. Lastly, students will be taught biomechanical, elastic taping techniques for prophylactic purposes, as well as support for the provided treatments. Since this class is mostly hands-on in nature, it will provide ample opportunity for all attendees to demonstrate techniques and exercises on each other.
Over 2 dozen nerves exit our spine and course throughout our body creating a vast information network. These spinal nerves branch and truncate into more nerves multiple times in order to send and receive signals related to various tissues throughout our body.
COMPRESSION & ENTRAPMENT
As these nerves travel, they become susceptible to compression or entrapment under different tissues, like fascia, muscles or fibrous bands, which can create a wide array of patient complaints ranging from minor to severe pain and loss of function.
SYMPTOMS & CONDITIONS
There are many conditions associated with PNE characterized by paresthesia, atrophy, loss of strength and function. The problems a patient may experience depend on the location and type of nerve involved; motor, sensory or combined.
