This method is based on the neuromechanics of the nerves, i.e. the ability to adapt the nervous system to constant changes in mechanical loads. The authors of the method note that nerve irritation occurs in virtually every pathology of the musculoskeletal system. It is manifested in sensory activity by pain and hyperalgesia, in neurovegetative activity by vasomotor, post-secretory and trophic disorders.
Through appropriate tension positions, the physiotherapist examines the ability of the nerves to adapt to a given position. It tries to evoke specific ailments reported by the patient in the history. If it manages to cause the ailments, it confirms the hypothesis that the problem lies in the nervous tissue.
Treatment consists of making oscillating movements, triggered "from a distance" in a painless range of motion. The expected effect will be correct movement without pain.
The main applications of neuromobilization therapy are problems with: the median, radial, ulnar, sciatic, femoral, obturator nerves, spinal canal, sympathetic nervous system.
In practice, the method of neuromobilization turns out to be extremely effective in:
- normalization of nervous system tensions after general, gynecological and transplant surgery,
- after neurosurgical procedures,
- in the course of discopathic changes, root conflicts,
- after sports injuries,
- in carpal tunnel syndrome of peripheral nerves.
