This chapter explores the underlying basis for pain arising from neural tissue disorders and describes a treatment-based classification system to identify three broad sub-groups of patients with such disorders. Each can be identified with careful clinical examination and each requires a different management approach. The supporting evidence in this chapter suggests that only the sub-group of neural pain disorders, diagnosed as PNS, should be managed with neural mobilization techniques. This is based on evidence that indicates that neural mobilization is not effective for all neural pain disorders. This chapter reveals that patient and technique selection is paramount when considering neural mobilization.
