Osteopathic Considerations of the Cranial Nerves

November 21, 2020

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.
