The clinical significance of patients suffering from cranial nerve neuropathies encompass the spectrum from debilitating pain to muscular and visceral dysfunction. The neuropathic pathogenesis may be of an organic or teratogenic nature, but frequently it can be a consequence of significant trauma that compromises anatomical structure, thus lending itself to an integrated osteopathic approach in patient care. Osteopathic medical curriculum has long observed the importance of facile clinical knowledge of the cranial nerves. However, the complexity of the subject matter, evolving anatomical explorations/neurologic mapping, and an underappreciated cranial nerve Osteopathic perspective, lends the subject ripe for review. Additionally, practiced cranial nerve physical examination skills are a requirement in sensitively observing clinical cranial nerve dysfunction.
This three hour virtual course is designed to systematically introduce and review significant cranial nerve:
• anatomical and functional considerations
• respective physical examination skills
• applied osteopathic perspectives and treatments within the model of Osteopathy in the Cranial Field
• clinical correlations
By the completion of this course, the participant will be able to:
• list the 13 cranial nerves by name and function
• identify common clinical presentations and their associations to specific cranial nerves
• identify anatomical entrapment locations that lend themselves to osteopathic considerations and treatment
This activity is open for all osteopathic and medical physicians (DO/MD), Dentist (DDS/DMD), Medical Student (DO/MD), and International Osteopaths.
