Course Description

Eye movements and rehabilitation on-line seminar

The eyes play an important role in the integrity of the nervous system.  For chiropractors, the connection between the eyes, the inner ear and the spine should be clearly understood since the spinal intrinsic musculature is controlled by this very system.  In this webinar you will learn how to assess aberrant eye movements and deficiencies in visual integration. We will also show you specific eye exercises to address these issues.  Last but not least we will explain how spectacles can create phoric changes in visual fields, and how this can lead to disturbances in eye movements secondarily effecting the autonomic nervous system. At the end of the webinar you can take an exam, and need to have a 85% passing rate to receive CPD points.

  • Neuronal control of fixation
  • How the eye muscles are linked to the spine, therefore important to analyse
  • Pursuits and saccadic eye movement in diagnosis and treatment
  • Optokinetic strips in diagnosis and rehabilitation
  • How glasses can affect eye movements thru the prism effect
  • How to treat mild forms of strabismus
  • The vestibulo-ocular reflex to stabilize images on the retina
  • Neural integration relating to eye activity and visual processing
  • We will also give you the latest Apps you can use in practice for diagnosis and treatment
  • Demonstrate a revolutionary new program to map eye movements
