Involuntary Neck Movements caused by Apicectomy

Posted By

An interesting case showcasing afferent input.

A young man with a diagnosis of torticollis (which was really involuntary movement) and winging of the scapulae.

I diagnosed the cause of his nerve interference on his first visit and here you can see the 4 week and 6 month follow-up.

If you look carefully you will see this is NOT ordinary muscle testing, this is afferent input testing.

Who knew an apicectomy could have such effects?

    Hi Simon,
    Just had a patient with 4 x apicoectomy of the upper anterior teeth – filled with mercury. Fortunately she had already found a Huggins trained dentist who removed them before she got to me. Systemic weakness was still present however as the denture she received still had uncured monomer – easily resolved with UV light! Love your work!
