Physical Therapist Assistant, Felicia Files Recently Completes a Neural Manipulation Course

Physical Therapist Assistant, Felicia Files recently completed the first course in The Barral Institute’s Neural Manipulation Series. This 3 day, hands-on course titled Neuromeningeal Manipulation: An Integrative Approach to Trauma (NM 1) was taught by Mark Bookout, PT in Chicago, IL. NM 1 is a specialized course emphasizing manual therapy techniques which identify and release local nerve restrictions that can result from a traumatic injury such as concussions & whiplash. This gentle technique combines light pressure and passive movement of the nerve tissue to reduce the pressure on the nerve by restoring it to it's original length. This gentle release can reduce chronic irritation and inflammation, reduce pain, and restore blood flow and conductivity in the nerve improving it's overall function. Neural Manipulation Therapy is a very gentle but powerful addition to any treatment protocol and can offer unique, results focused treatment for concussion patients. Patients can typically experience reduction/elimination of head and neck pain and increased mobility in neck, back and shoulders after treatment. Felicia appreciated the opportunity to add additional techniques to her manual therapy "tool box".

Felicia joined the Snow Sport & Spine team a little over a year ago and is enjoying working with Katie, Trevor, Gayle and Snow Sport and Spine clients.

The Barral Institute is one of the most widely respected teaching organizations in the world and a leader in Visceral and Neural Manipulation training.
