ZZZZZZF1.) Addressing Upper Extremity Nerve Entrapment Syndromes (Seattle October 10, 2020)


Product Description

Instructor: Robert McAtee, LMT, CSCS; NCBTMB #294954-00

Assessing and treating nerve entrapment conditions can be intimidating for massage therapists. This intensive seminar provides training in understanding and assessing possible nerve entrapment conditions and having the confidence to safely decide when massage interventions are appropriate, and when the client needs to be referred back to the doctor.

This course extensively reviews the major nerve pathways of the upper extremity, including the most common nerve entrapment sites for the brachial plexus, and the median, ulnar and radial nerve; reviews basic neural assessment tests, including Adson's test for scalene and first rib involvement, Eden's test for costoclavicular syndrome, Wright's test for pectoralis minor syndrome, ulnar tunnel tests, and median nerve tests for pronator teres syndrome and carpal tunnel syndrome. Nerve glide assessments are used to enhance assessment of the median, ulnar, and radial nerve.

This seminar includes demonstration and extensive supervised practice in the application of effective soft-tissue interventions, including pin and stretch, superficial and deep transverse friction, and facilitated stretching, to help alleviate these conditions.

At the end of this class, therapists will have the knowledge and practical experience necessary to identify, assess, and treat the most common entrapment syndromes of the upper extremity, leading to better treatment outcomes, happier clients, and a more profitable practice.
