Oculomotor Palsy

Cervical spine treatment of oculomotor palsy: a case report. Bryant TC, Stauffer WM, Simon GW J Chiropractic Jul 1988;38-39.

This is the case of a sixty-eight year old woman who suffered from ataxia and oculomotor nerve palsy (right eye being fixed in an extreme lateral gaze)

Chiropractic examination revealed a C1 and C6 subluxation that was corrected and her eye problems began to improve within a few days. T12 was later adjusted and the ataxia was improving. She continued care at weekly intervals and within two months the symptoms disappeared completely.
