Basic Course Module 3

Gm3 250The Cranial nervous system. Assessment, Treatment and management.

This part is about to detect clinical patterns of cranial nerve dysfunction and detect neuropathies. Conduction test and Neurodynamic tests of all cranial nerves, also nerve palpation will be presented. Mobilisation, facilitation and neuromassage of the extracranial nerves will be treated in the practical parts

Theory:

  • Physical dysfunction of the nervous system
  • Functional Neuroanatomy and neurodynamic of the cranial nerves
  • Peripheral neuropathic pain mechanism and cranial nerves
  • Differential diagnosis
  • Clinical considerations relating to cranial nerves

Practical:

  • Conduction test
  • Assessment and treatment with palpation techniques
  • Neurodynamic tests of the cranial nerves
  • Treatment principles
  • Treatments of syndromes, e.g. vasomotoric headache, Trigeminal neuropathy, atypic facial pain, Trigeminal neuralgia, facial paresis, eye dysfunction, speech and swallowing dysfunction
  • Patient treatment
