Lesson Plan

Nerve entrapments are extremely prevalent and are often misdiagnosed and mistreated. Thoracic outlet system, IT band syndrome, and plantar fasciitis, just to name a few. Understanding where nerves go, and how they create pain and muscle dysfunction, is of the utmost importance for manual therapists and clinicians. Why? Because, you can be missing the opportunity to help improve health and function…and at the same time be potentially making the person substantially worse, in some cases…and not better.
