Clinical Pilates in Practice: Neurodyamics

Integrating neural mobility exercises into functional movements and clinical Pilates practice can have multiple benefits, regardless of whether a client is displaying neural mechanosensitivity: all tissues in the body need to move!

 

Key Points: Neurodynamics
  • Mechanical and physiological events within the nervous system are dynamically interdependent.
  • Neurodynamics (ND) is the term used to describe the integration of the morphology,
    biomechanics, and physiology of the nervous system." 10
  • In neurodynamics, posture and multi-joint movements are combined to apply force to a nerve.
  • Mobilisation triggers a range of responses in nervous tissues, including tension and pressure changes, and positive impacts on nervous impulses, axonal transport, viscoelasticity, microcirculation, and abnormal impulse-generating sites.
  • Theoretically, neural mobilisation restores homeostasis in and around the nerve, dispersing intraneural oedema in the nerve root and axon, thereby decreasing...

NEURODYNAMICS

  • Mechanical and physiological events within the nervous system are dynamically interdependent. Functionally, that means that nerves have to be able to move in order to work optimally.
  • Neurodynamics is essentially the dynamic movement of the peripheral nerves of the body, although clinically and in rehab, the term neurodynamics pertains to nervous system mobilization for neuropathic pain.
  • In practice, when performing neurodynamic exercises, posture and multi-joint movements are combined to apply force to a nerve.
