Cranial Nerves, the Dural System and Neurology

by Dr. Lynn Gerner, D.C., FICPA
  • Duration: 540 Mins
  • Credits: 1 CERP, 1 L-CERP
  • Learning Format: Webinar
  • Handout: Yes

Biology often explains it all. Beyond the cranial and Musculo-skeletal system, the cerebral spinal/dural system and the cranial nerves play a huge roll not only in feeding function, but in the overall physical and cognitive health of the child. These systems are reciprocal- the structural system can cause neurological impairment; and likewise, neurological impairment can lead to structural imbalance and weak muscles. Many different therapeutic disciplines acknowledge this relationship in different ways. This presentation focuses on: (1) the cranial nerves specific to breastfeeding function; (2) The dura and CSF (cerebral spinal fluid) systems; (3) clinical presentations: Failure to thrive, colic, KISS/KIDD (4) Studies and articles from various approaches of care; and (5) the consequences of Cesarean Section on CSF and neuropathology.

Learning Objectives:

1. Describe the specific cranial nerves relating to breastfeeding and their location.

2. Explain the consequences of compression and pathology.

3. Describe the anatomy and function of the dural system.
