Topic: "Neurology 340: The Upper Motor Neuron and Clinical Considerations"
Credit Hours: 2
Instructor: Michael Hall, DC, FIACN
Course Description: The upper motor neuron often wreaks havoc in the minds of practitioners as it perpetuates an ominous sign of neurologic dysfunction. This presentation will present a neuroanatomic illustration of how the axial and appendicular compartments differ, how posture contributes to the upper and lower motor neuron presentations. And most of all, this presentation will increase clinical proficiency through better understanding of motor function and clinical syndromes.
