Topic: Neurology 204: Functional Neurology – Clinical Aspects of the Pyramidal Man
Credit Hours: 2
Instructor: Michael Hall, DC, FIACN
Course Description: The pyramidal presentation is one of great interest to the chiropractor. The brain has a natural function in reducing tone of the ipsilateral flexor musculature via descending pathways and the ponto-medullary reticular formation. This presentation will reveal clinical tests and procedures to evaluate the pyramidal presentation. Knowing this information can aid the chiropractor in providing appropriate care to optimize patient outcomes and removing neurological interference. Never stop learning while earning chiropractic continuing education credit!
