Entrapment neuropathies are the most common peripheral nerve disorders. Common conditions include cervical or lumbar radiculopathies, carpal tunnel syndrome or cubital tunnel syndrome. Diagnosis and treatment of entrapment neuropathies are often challenging. This can in part be attributed to a limited understanding of the pathophysiology as well as the conflicting evidence regarding treatment of these patients. This course aims to provide a detailed insight into recent scientific advances in regards to the pathophysiology, assessment and conservative management of patients with entrapment neuropathies. Focus will thereby be placed on patients with spinally referred pain.
Upon completion of the course, participants will have a deep understanding of potential pathomechanisms at play in patients with entrapment neuropathies. They will know how to differentiate the dominant mechanisms in individual patients using methods beyond the commonly used neural integrity tests. Participants will also be competent in designing a targeted intervention for different subgroups of patients with spinally referred pain and can confidently interpret changes associated with the delivered intervention.
