Cranial Motion and AK


While we think of the skull as a solid bone, it is actually several bones tightly joined together. The bones are linked by joints known as sutures, and move very slightly in a definite rhythm. The movement corresponds with filling and emptying of cerebrospinal fluid. If you have ever observed a fish in water and movement of the gills, human cranial movement is similar (although not nearly as pronounced). The sacrum, or tail bone, has a similar rhythm.

Trauma (including birth trauma), allergies, mal-occlusion of teeth and other things can affect this cranial sacral rhythm. Problems with this mechanism can have a profound effect on the nervous system and health in general. This mechanism can be involved with high blood pressure, allergies, migraine headaches, fatigue, ADD, ADHD, and a variety of complaints. A chiropractor trained in treating the cranial sacral mechanism can help balance the nervous system using this tool.
