Peripheral Nerve Manipulation: Mechanisms, Clinical Applications, and Efficacy in Neurological Disorders

Peripheral nerve manipulation (PNM) is an emerging therapeutic approach aimed at addressing dysfunction and pain associated with peripheral nerves.

Peripheral nerves play a critical role in sensory and motor functions, and dysfunction of these nerves can lead to a range of neurological disorders. PNM techniques focus on restoring optimal nerve function through manual manipulation.

List of Disorders (in which PNM may help):

  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Sciatica
  • Peripheral neuropathy
  • Radiculopathy
  • Morton’s neuroma
  • Tarsal tunnel syndrome
Peripheral Nerve Manipulation
Mechanism of Action: PNM techniques involve gentle manipulation of peripheral nerves to release tension, improve mobility, and reduce compression. By addressing nerve dysfunction, PNM aims to restore normal physiological processes, alleviate symptoms, and promote nerve health. Clinical Applications: PNM has been applied in various neurological disorders to alleviate pain, improve motor function, and enhance quality of life. For example, PNM techniques have shown promise in reducing pain intensity and improving functional status in patients with carpal tunnel syndrome (Bialosky et al., 2009). Additionally, PNM has been used as an adjunctive therapy for sciatica to reduce nerve irritation and promote healing (Flynn et al., 2012). Peripheral nerve manipulation offers a non-invasive and potentially effective approach for managing neurological disorders. Further research is needed to elucidate the underlying mechanisms of PNM and establish its efficacy in diverse patient populations. References: Bialosky, J. E., Bishop, M. D., Price, D.
