This two-day lab course will present concepts of differential diagnosis and treatment of patients with upper extremity radicular symptoms pioneered by Bob Elvey PT, GDMT.  Emphasis will be placed on precise physical evaluation of neural, articular, and muscular tissues in order to allow for specific treatment of each. This precision evaluation allows for differential diagnosis of upper arm and arm pain syndromes with regard to the cervical spine, thoracic outlet, glenohumeral joint and peripheral nerves. Treatment of pain syndromes of neural origin will be explained and demonstrated along the lines of well researched neural tissue bio-mechanics and physiological concepts. This course will cover well-recognized disorders commonly encountered by the physical and occupational therapist. Such topics as "frozen shoulder," CRPS, carpal tunnel, thoracic outlet, and other peripheral neuropathies and their treatment will be discussed. Peripheral afferent sensitization, associated neuropathic and neurogenic pain syndromes, including a review of new research into the treatment of CRPS I and CRPS II, will also be presented.  Real patient examinations, videos, case presentation, and supervised labs will be used to further allow for application of the material into the participant's daily practice.

Develop an evidence based understanding of the signs, symptoms and treatment interventions for peripheral neuropathic syndromes.

Develop and enhance neural structure palpation skills.

Acquire skills for differential diagnosis of patients with upper and lower extremity radicular symptoms.

Learn six sensitive and specific evaluation techniques.

Acquire the skills of treatment to normalize the mechanics of the neural tissues.

Establish an effective home program for the patient with neuropathic syndrome.
