Tension is applied to the neural tissues by increasing the distance between each end of the nerve tract, that is, elongating the telescope in which the nerves are contained and attached at each end. A key feature of the tensioner is that, in addition to the joints being moved, the innervated tissue is used to apply tension to the nerve. Extension of the fingers with the median neurodynamic test 1, combined with the rest of the test and contralateral lateral flexion of the neck, is an example of a tensioner.

However, the sliding of neural structures in the spine is complex and not fully understood. Specific sequences of movements produce their own sliding patterns, some of which have been documented. Neck flexion produces cephalad sliding of the neural contents in the lumbar region (Breig & Marions 1963; Breig 1978). However, the straight leg raise (SLR) produces caudad sliding of the nerve roots in the lumbosacral intervertebral foraminae (Goddard 8c Reid 1965; Breig 1978; Breig 8c Troup 1979) and cervical cord (Smith 1956).
