Osteopathic Cranial Cervical Therapy
Osteopathic Cranial Cervical Therapy maybe best described as a blending of the art and science of Osteopathic and Neuromyological Manual Medicine. Cranial Cervical Therapy focuses on the relationship of the cranial structure, cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) and bio-mechanics (body mechanics).
It is a very gentle restorative therapy that focuses on the cervical spine (C1-C7) and eight major joints within the skull called sutures. We focus therapy on cranial sutures of the skull and the spinal fluid, which moves in pulse-like waves in the skull and spinal column.
Dr. Pietro Denucci MD, DO, has described osteopathic cranial cervical therapy as one of the most powerful tools for correcting a myriad of health problems. It is also one of the most subtle ways of Osteopathic Cranial Therapy. When used by a Qualified Osteopathic Manual Practitioner it is a gentle healing technique that works on the cranial sutures and cervical spine releasing and removing Cranial Faults.
Cranial faults may develop for a variety of reasons. Osteopathic Cranial Cervical Practitioners believe cranial faults maybe the result of birth trauma or trauma sometime in the development of the child before the skull bones were fully formed. As well cranial faults may result from chemical, and emotional trauma as well. Therefore a stressful event can produce cranial faults as much as a car accident or a fall.
The Human Skull
It was long believed that the only purpose of the skull was to protect the brain and of course this role is obviously primary, more recent research has shown that the skull has other important functions. The skull bones actually move as with breathing. There are eight major joints within the skull called sutures. Sutures act like hinges on which the cranial bones move as you inhale and exhale.
The movement is minute and is not seen with the naked eye. The synchronous movement of the cranial bones is necessary for proper function of the spine, nervous and energy systems. It is believed that the primary reason for the movement of the cranial bones is for distribution of cerebral spinal fluid, which flows outside of the brain and down the spinal cord. The body can make up to several liters of this fluid per day. Misalignments of the cranial bones are called cranial faults. Some of the more common symptoms of cranial faults are:
• A Variety of possible Neuropathic Problems
There are other symptoms as well. Since cranial bone movement effects nerve and energy patterns throughout the body, it is possible for almost any symptom to be the result of a cranial fault.
Correction is made with gentle pressure as the patient breaths. Patients are generally surprised at the effectiveness of this technique and often describe immediate relief following cranial therapy. They are also surprised to discover that the body behaves so dynamically with even small amounts of stimulus. It is because of these dynamic changes that we are able to correct many conditions with low or non-forceful techniques.
