Introducing Michael Shacklock
Somasimple is very pleased to have Michael Shacklock as our first guest in our new program called Choices.
We will be posting an interview conducted with Michael, and on a date yet to be determined he will be available live online to field questions from interested posters.
Michael Shacklock graduated as a physiotherapist from the Auckland School of Heealth Sciences in 1980. During his undergraduate training, he quickly developed an interest in manual therapy and has pursued this interest throughtout his career. He worked in public hospitals and private practices for several years in New Zealand before traveling to Adelaide, South Australia in 1985, to take part in post graduate study. In 1989, he completed a Graduate Diploma in Advanced Manipulative Therapy at the University of South Australia and converted this to a Master of Applied Science in 1993. He has taught internationally for over 10 years and has given numerous keynote and invited presentations throughout the western world. His Masters thesis was on the effect of order of movement on the peroneal neurodynamic test, in which he discovered the concept of neurodynamic sequencing. Since then he has studied mechanics and physiology of the nervous system, performing research and writing a number of publications on the subject. Michael edited the extremely successful book Moving in on Pain and has published in Physiotherapy and Manual Therapy and written leading and invited articles for the Australian Journal of Physiotherapy and New Zealand Journal of Physiotherapy. Michael's most recent publications consist a new book on clinical neurodynamics and an editorial for Manual Therapy on critical issues in research and clinical application of neurodynamic and neural tension testing and treatments.
Michael's recent area of research has been the in vivo imaging of mechanical function of the nervous system and he teaches clinical neurodynamics internationally. He owns and directs a city based sports physiotherapy practice.
Michael Shacklock's current positions are founding director of Neurodynamic Solutions, Principal, City Physiotherapy and Sports Injury Clinic, Adelaide, South Australia. He is a member of the International Advisory Board for Manual Therapy. He is also a reviewer for the international peer-reviewed journals Manual Therapy and Pain.
