Dermal Traction Method Co-Invented by Dr. Dean
When people think of pinches nerves the first things that come to mind are sciatica, carpal tunnel and radicular pain syndromes that occur from a herniated disc. This occurs when these large (Macro) nerves become compressed generally by either a bulged disc or what commonly known as a tunnel syndrome. When mobility of these large nerves become restricted either by mechanical or physiological means a clinical scenario arises
What about the Small Nerves?
Dermal Traction Method (formally known as YAP) is manual therapy technique that targets the small nerves that reside in the skin.
Key Learning Objectives:
- Anatomy and physiology of the superficial fascia including it’s variability in different body regions.
- How Dermal Traction Method should be the preferred choice to increase mobility of the skin as well as address “unhappy” superficial nerves. aka pinches nerves.
- Learn which cutaneous nerves create pain that’s often misdiagnosed. Examples include Plantar Fasciitis, Patella Femoral Syndrome, Headaches, Neck pain, Upper back, and Groin pain.
- When a superficial nerve is the pain generating tissue, learn how this relates to movement. Design your rehabilitation exercises with nerve biomechanics in mind to avoid further provocation with sports injuries.
- Learn where almost all superficial nerves are located in the body!
The Dermal Traction Method Assessment takes less than 10 seconds and treatment is under 2 minutes!
