Assessments and Treatment for Nerve Pain


SKU: N/A Category:

This course focuses on specific nerves commonly described in the massage therapy field. Nerves can become impinged or trapped in joints and tissues throughout the body. Compression of nerves leads to numbness, motor weakness, muscle spasms, pain, and the development of protective scar tissue.
