Course Description: This two-day lab course will present concepts of differential diagnosis and treatment of patients with lower extremity pain and loss of function pioneered by Bob Elvey P. T., G.D.M.T. Participants will learn to integrate the six sensitive and specific evaluation techniques into their standard evaluations and specific treatment protocols will be demonstrated and practiced. Research shows that over 12% of lower quadrant maladies are often caused by peripheral nerve sensitization and thereby misdiagnosed.  Plantar fasciitis, failed back syndromes, chronic hamstring tears, tarsal tunnel syndromes, trochanteric bursitis to name a few. Well documented neurogenic causation will be presented. Real patient examinations, videos, case presentation, and lab practicals will allow for application into the participant’s daily practice.
