Topic: Neurology 206: Functional Neurology – Clinical Aspects of the Cerebellum

Credit Hours: 2

Instructor: Michael Hall, DC, FIACN

Course Description: The cerebellum is of the utmost clinical importance to the chiropractor. The cerebellum is involved daily in our ability to oppose gravity, have coordinated eye movements, and to best articulate our speech. The cerebellum is also involved as a major afferent system to the cerebral cortex and has been implicated in disorders of autism to Alzheimer’s. The most obvious role of the cerebellum to the chiropractor is in our patient’s posture. The cerebellum is most involved with the sagittal plane of our posture, ie – our ability to sit up, stand up, and walk upright. This presentation will review some of the clinical pearls and insights of the role the cerebellum plays in our daily health. This program will increase your value to your patients while you are earning chiropractic continuing education credits!
