As primary care practitioners chiropractors and osteopaths commonly see patients with neurological pathology, a thorough examination and prudent interpretation of the history, signs and symptoms is essential in order to arrive at a meaningful diagnosis and therefore appropriate treatment. As most of us remember, from our undergraduate years, neurology is both a difficult and complex subject to comprehend. This module should help provide practitioners with the skills necessary to competently examine, diagnose and refer where necessary for the more common problems associated with diseases of the nervous system.
