Osteopathic approach: aneurism of the vertebral artery

Aneurism of the Vertebral Artery

Severe pain at the back of the head

may be symptomatic of aneurism of the vertebral artery just before entering the skull.

This is due to the close connection of the artery with the suboccipital nerve in the groove on the posterior arch of the atlas.

Aneurism of the vertebral artery can also affect speech.

Pressure on the hypoglossal nerve then leads to paralysis of tongue muscles.
