“What I’ve learned is that when a muscle becomes wasted, its not just because of a lack of impulses from the nerve into the muscle, its not just a lack of activity, it’s being told by a trophic factor produced by the nerve to get wasted”

Michael Shacklock (DipPhysio, MAppSC, FACP, NDS Instructor and founding director) speaks with us about neurodynamics, nerve dysfunction, the anatomy and physiology of the nervous system, diagnosis and treatment of peripheral nerve disorders, and patient education.
