This course will assist in identifying upper quadrant entrapment neuropathies as well as proving provocative tests to rule in or rule out neurogenic tissues. The information may be applied to these diagnosis: Ulnar, Radial and Median Nerve entrapment, Thoracic outlet syndrome, brachial plexus neuropathy and musculoskeletal tightness in upper Quadrant. The relationship between neurovascular and musculoskeletal structures causing pressure gradient changes will be discussed. A differential diagnosis of proximal to distal tissues as well as central sensitization symptoms will be reviewed. Treatment strategies to treat these entrapment neuropathies including educational ideas, nerve gliding techniques, muscle reeducation, and movement based management will be presented using case studies. At the end of this webinar participants will have additional treatment ideas for immediate clinical use.
