Nerve Mobilization DVD: Low Back, Pelvis and Lower Extremity
NM - Lower
The second DVD in the Nerve Mobilization series teaches a comprehensive approach to nerve compression and irritation syndromes in the low back, pelvis and lower extremity. The sciatic nerve and all it's branches are treated, but not the femoral nerve. This choice was made to allow a more comprehensive focus on the commonest nerve problems in clients.
This 4 hour, 5 minute DVD teaches an approach that integrates identifying the most problematic tissues at fault as well as treating clients along a continuum from acute to sub-actue to chronic.
As always, beautiful graphics illustrate key anatomical points. In addition to the 65 techniques in the DVD, 12 vital home care exercises are taught to help your client return to full pain-free living.
“This valuable DVD about lumbar disk lesions and related nerve problems is aimed at advanced massage students and medically-oriented clinicians. A large selection of stage-specific assessment, manual treatment, and self-care methods are clearly explained and masterfully demonstrated using an actual client. The presentation is enhanced by good production, great anatomy visuals, and Doug’s expertise and sense of humor.”
