**This course has reached capacity. Wait list open only.**


The primary purpose of this course is to review neuromusculoskeletal anatomy on prosected cadavers in order to enhance the participants’ understanding of anatomical relationships that are relevant to manual therapy.

Identifying structures and tissues in cadavers can sometimes be overwhelming, therefore we will be using the peripheral nervous system as a road map to our exploration of the surrounding soft tissue. In addition, we will explore common peripheral nerve entrapment sites in the upper and lower extremities and briefly discuss treatment options for the various entrapments.

The course will consist of a directed pre-course anatomy review, including readings that identify common upper and lower extremity nerve entrapments and their clinical presentations.

The in-lab portion of the course will be 6.25 hours long. It will consist of guided exploration of prosected cadavers, self-exploration of the cadavers by the students, and surface palpation of each other, to make the relationships reviewed in the cadaver more clinically useful.
