So what is similar about Horner’s Syndrome and how to functionally train a patient with a compromised alar ligament? The answer, my friends, is they both come up in our presentation in the NAIOMT Scan of the Head. This region is functionally, anatomically, neurologically and pathologically so very different than the mid-cervical spine. As faculty instructors, we present these two so very distinct areas on separate tracks, with the head scan alone taking up a good portion of one day of our Cervical Spine course.
