Neurofascial Approach To Entrapment: Lower Extremity

Neurofascial Approach To Entrapment: Lower Extremity

Class Description: This 8-hour Continuing Education class is open to all healthcare practitioners licensed in Manual/Massage Therapy. Other practitioners are welcome to join for the first 2 hours of class. (i.e. Movement Teachers, Allied Healthcare Practitioners, and body nerds). See “Lecture Only” ticket option.

Conditions like sciatica, obturator neuralgia, and pelvic floor pain often have a neurofascial driver — a pattern of inflammation, neural tension, and protective spasm. In this class, you will learn to assess and treat systematically the nerves of the lower extremity and their fascial environment. Muscle-bone concepts are not doing the trick — let’s get people better!


  • Local Fascial anatomy of nerves in the lower extremity
  • Lower extremity nerve mechanics
  • Pathogenesis of Sciatica and related condition
  • Basic physiology of peripheral neuroinflammation
  • Palpation of common sites of neurovascular entrapment
  • Systematic assessment and treatment strategies for Sciatica and related conditions


  • Writing materials
  • Set of sheets and emollient
  • Wear loose clothing
