Cranial Nerve Disorders

Cranial nerve disorders result from pressure on the nerves that pass from your brain to parts of your head, neck, and torso. They can cause pain, spasms, paralysis, and vision problems.

Specialists at the AHN Neuroscience Institute are highly trained and experienced at treating cranial nerve disorders through surgical and nonsurgical care.
