The human skull is comprised of 22 bones that are joined together with sutures. It was discovered in the mid 70’s that there is a space between the bones in the skull and it contains a blood supply, nerve supply and connective tissue.
It was also discovered that there is a rhythm of movement between each of the cranial bones. Although the sutures cannot be pulled apart, the bones in the skull can be knocked out of their proper alignment.
Cranial adjustments restore alignment to the bones in the head and face through precise pressure applied by the doctor’s hands over or near the junctions (sutures) of the bones.
Cranial subluxations can be caused by any impact to a person’s head during their lifetime including the birth process. This technique is effective in removing the pressure on the brain caused by cranial subluxations that can change people’s lives. For example memory, sleep patterns, behaviours, sight and taste can be improved.
Extensive scientific cranial mapping has been done that establishes what parts of the brain control which functions. When a cranial misalignment occurs certain areas of the brain will have decreased blood flow and decreased cerebral spinal fluid (CSF) flow.
Proper blood supply and CSF flow are essential to maintaining a healthy brain. The onset of your health problems may be the result of an injury to the head.
Who would benefit from cranial adjustments?
Anyone that has suffered any kind of trauma to the head should be examined for misalignments in the cranial bones, especially if the injured person experiences unrelated health problems after a head injury. Cranial adjusting can benefit those people with:
• ADD, ADHD
• Post Concussion Syndrome
• Learning disabilities
• Learning difficulties
• Behaviour issues
Note: We are correcting cranial misalignments, not treating specific conditions.
