Neurophysiological Underpinnings of the Trigeminal System – Part 1

Nov 17, 2022 | Headache | 0 comments

In this short episode, Susan discusses the upper cervical region and its effects on the rest of the body: core, pelvic floor dysfunction, muscle recruitment, balance, dizziness, etc. Join Susan as she takes a journey into the remarkable system from one of her lectures. Erl Pettman’s work has long influenced Susan on her clinical reasoning and the importance of convergence of symptoms throughout the body from the upper cervical spine and the cervical trigeminal nucleus. Retraining this region is one of the reasons we “recommend” the Clock Yourself App – for the cervico-occular-vestibular reflex training.
