Nerve Entrapment Assessment
Tension the nerve at the proximal end.
Upper extremity – head and neck flexed and rotated away, shoulder depressed.
Lower extremity – head, neck, and upper back slumped forward
Gently tension the nerve at the distal end until pain or discomfort is felt.
Relieve the tension at the proximal end. If the pain diminishes, the problem is from the nerve.
If the pain doesn’t diminish, the problem is likely musculoskeletal.
Nerve Glide Protocol
Assess nerve by tensioning.
Massage or cup areas of nerve restriction.
Tension the nerve at the distal end while relaxing it at the proximal end.
Tension the nerve at the proximal end while relaxing it at the distal end.
Repeat steps 3 and 4 up to six times.
Reassess the nerve by tensioning.
