Neurological Differential Diagnosis 101 / 1 Credit
- Assess the diagnostic validity and reliability of assessing hip
abductor power for differentiating between lumbar radiculopathy and
fibular (peroneal) neuropathy as a root cause of foot drop.
- Determine the anatomical basis and clinical value of the Abduction Extension Cervical Nerve Root Stress Test (AECNRST).
- Explore and compare the validity, responsiveness and predictive
value of the Fingertip-to-Floor Test and Straight Leg Raising Test in
acute/subacute low back pain.
- Compile a contemporary list of potential mechanisms to explain the
occurrence of dual nerve disorders, or ‘double-crush’ syndrome.
- Evaluate the consistency of the temporal relationship between intervertebral disc degeneration and subsequent herniation.
