Neurodynamics is an area of active research that aims to explore mechanical and physiological properties of nerves and how these properties might contribute to common pain conditions when compromised. You might be surprised at how many orthopedic conditions respond to nerve specific treatments (i.e. plantar fasciitis, tennis elbow, sciatica, carpal tunnel syndrome, etc).
Many times the answer to pain may be strategies that enhance neural health. Did you know your nerves have their own intraneural network of nerves and blood vessels? When a nerve is stressed to a certain threshold, it can loose all blood supply and oxygen, which can trigger nociceptive or ‘danger’ signaling to the brain. Keeping nerves healthy can be as simple as learning to move in new and unique ways and doing this often throughout the day.
