The first part of this two part webinar series will be an overview of the neuroanatomy and physiology of skeletal muscle. We will cover the following in detail - gamma nerves and alpha nerves, muscle spindles and their intra-fusal fibres, the extra-fusal fibres, motor units, and sensory/motor interplay.There will be lots of visual support for helping participants understand this sometimes daunting aspect of our work. And it is worth getting our heads around as it gives us much greater understanding of how MFR can influence muscle tone in such a profound way. With this understanding, we can journey into part 2 where there the emphasis is on making use of this in your clinic.
