Neuro dynamics refers to the communication between different parts of the nervous system and to the nervous systems relationship to the musculoskeletal system. It has been shown that the nerves move independently from other tissues. The term Neurodynamics first made an appearance in 1989 and has since been further developed over the last 30 years. Neurodynamics is now seen as an important part of injury assessment and treatment.
Neurodynamics in the sense implied here is the mobilisation of the nervous system as an approach to physical treatment of pain. The treatment and or assessment relies on influencing pain physiology via the mechanical treatment of neural tissues and non-neural structures surrounding the nervous system. This mobilisation activates a range of mechanical and physiological responses in nervous tissues. eg neural sliding, pressurisation, elongation, tension and changes in intraneural microcirculation, axonal transport and nervous impulse movements.
