Outcome & Case Data - Osteopathic Manipulative Treatment

STRABISMUS

Weiner G
Resolving strabismus through craniomandibular manipulation
Cranio 1990 Jul;8(3):279-285

Cranial manipulation can be used as a treatment adjunct in resolving ocular dysfunctions. In this case study the pathophysiology of etiologies of the strabismus was narrowed down to various muscles dysfunctions which included most commonly a hypertonic medial rectus muscle. Cranial manipulation was employed in this case to return the cranium to its anatomical and physiologic normal. The results of the manipulation resulted in improvement of the child's vision and eye deviation. These improvements were also noted by the patient’s ophthalmologist.
