Adverse Neural Dynamics – Treatment considerations for neck and arm pain This presentation, created by Jason Grandeo, as part nuerodynamics the Evidence in Motion OMPT Fellowship, 1 reviews the current literature on treating adverse neural dynamics in the upper extremity, 2 describes interventions used to treat individuals with positive neural dynamic tests for median, ulnar and radial nerves, and 3 discusses the need for future research to guide physical therapist clinical reasoning when treating individuals presenting with signs of adverse neural dynamics in the upper extremity.
Adverse Neural Dynamics – Upper Extremity Examination This presentation, created by Jason Grandeo, as part of the Evidence in Motion OMPT Fellowship, reviews 1 the biomechanical and pathophysiological properties of nerve,2 the indications for using upper-limb neurodynamic tests, 3 normal sensory responses for each of the upper limb neurodynamic tests, 4 the validity of the upper limb neurodynamic tests, and 5 positive findings with upper limb neurodynamic tests.

There was a problem during the HTTP request: In most cases Physiopedia articles are a secondary source and so should not be used as references.
To further sensitize the upper limb tests, side flexion of cervical spine can be added . The reliability and validity is different for different test which can be seen here. They are performed by the therapist placing progressively more tension on the component of the nervous system that is neuridynamics tested and are divided into upper and lower limb tests.
If pain or sensations of tingling or numbness are experienced at any stage during movement into the test position neurodynamlcs during addition of sensitization maneuvers, particularly reproduction of neck, shoulder or arm symptoms, the test is positive; this confirms a degree of mechanical interference affecting neural structures.
Each joint positioning component is added until the pain is provoked or symptoms are reproduced. Hands behind back Thoracic flexion Extend one knee Dorsiflex foot of extended knee Cervical flexion.

Patient is lying in prone position Affected side: See here for more info on this test. Failed to load RSS feed from http: Shoulder girdle depression Elbow extension Medial rotation of the whole arm Wrist, finger and thumb flexion. The shoulder,elbow, forearm,wrist and fingers are kept in specific position to put stress on particular nerve nerve bias  and further modification in position of each joint is done as “sensitizer”.
Full knee flexion and maintains position for 45s If full knee flexion cannot be performed, the hip may be brought into extenstion to futher stress the femoral nerve and nerve roots L2-L4 Postitive test: Retrieved from ” https: These tests are both diagnostic and therapeutic.

A neurodynamic assessment evaluates the length and mobility of various components of the nervous system. Physiopedia articles are best used to find the original sources of neurodyynamics see the references list at the bottom of the article. The main reason for using a ULTT is to check cervical radiculopathy.
These tension tests are performed to check the peripheral nerve compression or as a part of neurodynamic assessment. The ULTT’s are equivalent to the straight leg raise designed for the lumbar spine.
That is usually the journal article where the information was first stated. Traditionally for the upper limb, the order of joint positioning is shoulder followed by forearm, wrist, fingers, and lastly elbow.
Shoulder girdle depression Elbow extension Shoulder extension Ulnar neurofynamics of the wrist with thumb flexion Either medial or lateral rotation of the arm could further sensitize this nerve.
