3 Names NOT to forget when performing a SLR

by admin on August 31, 2012

Hi Everyone. Hope you’re enjoying the summer. I just wanted to post this to help with your techniques for neural tension. If you notice your patient is presenting with cardinal signs of lower extremity neural tension during a SLR try altering foot and ankle position to determine if a particular nerve bias is present. 3 names will help you with this clinical decision making and they are SID, PIP, and TED. SID helps to identify Sural nerve involvement by adding Inversion and Dorsiflexion (SID) for bias accents. Peroneal nerve involvement by adding Inversion and Plantar flexion (PIP) for bias accents. Tibial nerve involvement by adding Eversion and Dorsiflexion (TED) for bias accents. Let me know how you make out.
