Neurodynamic Progressions

In this 7 min video, I go over the concepts of the Abnormal Impulse Generating Site. This is relevant to peripheral complaints because
  • a tethered peripheral nerve can become demyelinated
  • this creates ion channels that are extra senstive - they become
    • chemosensitive
    • mechanosensitive
    • thermosensitive
    • fire sponataneously
  • when they fire, the impulse can go either proximally or distally AND
  • the area of AIGs is often not the symptomatic site
For this reason, you should strive to treat the entire neural container, and not just the symptomatic area
