Mobilisation of the Neuroimmune System- Neuro Orthopaedic Institute (NOI)

Last week Lisa MacPherson, one of our highly experienced physiotherapists attended a two day course ‘Mobilisation of the Neuroimmune System’ through the Neuro Orthopaedic Institute (NOI). Lisa did an early version of this course around 20 years ago when the concept of mobilising nerves was first promoted. In the past 20 years the science behind what happens with nerves, pain and injury has advanced enormously and of particular interest was the changing concept of what has been known as the nervous system now being considered to be the Neuroimmune System.NOI Logo


The comprehensive lecture and hands-on course integrated the latest research on neurodynamics and neuroimmune science to provide a clinical reasoning framework to identify those patients who will benefit from neuroimmune mobilisation and management of the physical health of the nervous system after injury.


One of our current clinical interests is in improving management of cluneal nerve entrapment- a source of low back and flank pain that we are managing using a combination of postural correction, stretches of quadratus lumborum and nerve gliding techniques. The incorporation of these contemporary approaches for patients who have previously not responded well to treatment has resulted in very pleasing outcomes.
