Six reasons to assess the cranial nerves in the MSK clinic.

A thread 🧵

Reason 1.
You assess and manage patients with neck pain/ headache/orofacial symptoms
#Physio #Physiotherapy #PhysicalTherapy
Reason 2.
You routinely assess neurological function when you encounter
1. Distal symptoms in the upper limb
2. Distal symptoms in the lower limb
It is logical therefore to do the same when it comes to the neck/head/face
Reason 3.
You will see patients who complain of post trauma/insidious onset dizziness/nausea/visual disturbances
... which may or may not be linked to CN dysfunction.
CN testing should form part of your routine risk assessment.

Heads up to followers on twitter, will be virtually attending the #ESASRBANZBMS conference this week (21-24th Nov) so expect a bunch of tweets with a particularly heavy science bend. Disclaimer: this is by no means an extensive coverage & usually includes personal reflections. /1
So before continuing, I will try to...
- keep everything here in this thread
- share what I snippets I can
- add a number to keep tweets in some order
- respond where possible (but am also engaging in the conference spaces)
- link to papers when I can /2
Now a bunch of # in case relevant to these folks: #MedTwitter #Science #anzbms #biology #pharmatwitter #ortho #rheum #immunology
#arthritis #pathology #physicaltherapy
#pt #MSKRad #OccupationalTherapy

Anyone is most welcome to add relevant tags :D /3

1/ So here is the final result on the Cranial Nerves poll.

>50% responded that they were not taught CN’s at University

In addition 56% who WERE taught it suggested they were not comfortable acting on the findings.
2/ It is worth reflecting on the fact that most trained PT’s will assess neurological function in suspected upper limb and lower limb neurological dysfunction ... BUT NOT routinely in the cervical-cranial region.
3/ For a profession that positions itself as able ‘First Contact Practitioners’ for MSK conditions, that HAS to to be an #AFI

Serious adverse events related to cervical-cranial neurovascular dysfunction = Vision loss, Stroke or Death

If the vertebral artery test truly is dead (?), where do we go from here?

Thanks to @RikKranenburg @NathanHutting @RogerKerry1 and the Australian Physiotherapy Association for providing me with the impetus to think about, and produce these short films. #Haemodynamics #RiskAssessment #CervicalSpine #FCP #Physiotherapy #PhysicalTherapy #Education Image

Having spent the last 2 weeks in a #COVID_19 follow up clinic, based in a Find and Treat van I have more learning to share.
1: There is no better way to get to know your colleagues than sharing the experience of running a clinic out of a van.
2: Many many people are still experiencing symptoms even 6-8 weeks after having COVID.
3: Ongoing symptoms include; breathlessness, fatigue, ⬇️ ex tol, low mood, anxiety, palpitations, cough, chest tightness, pain. Some still have CXR changes, desaturation at rest/ on exertion.
4: Many feel they could not return to work full time.
5: The psychological impact is high. Anxiety about getting COVID again, or infecting loved ones or in general about their recovery. Many are traumatised by the experience having had COVID and coping with symptoms at home.
