Chronic Pain & Conditions Can Be Treated With Craniosacral Therapy


Craniosacral therapy has become increasingly popular over the past decade or so in the United States and elsewhere in the world. However, what is it worth its salt? Craniosacral therapy, sometimes called craniosacral therapy, is a kind of chiropractic therapy or other medicine that uses gentle, non-invasive touch on the cranium to palpate the sacrum and other cranial joints. It is marketed as a treatment for various health conditions and is based on basic misconceptions about the anatomy of the skull.

One of the biggest problems with cranial osteopathy is that it is not based on any true physical science. There are no tests that reveal that cranial osteopathy can restore mobility to a brain function, and there are no structural tests which show how changing cranial bones affects the overall structure of the brain. This is because there's nothing in the cranium that can be moved and no amount of manipulation can alter that. Thus, osteopaths are abandoned offering hope through spinal manipulation and other"helpers" of the spinal column.

At the most basic level, a craniosacral therapy session is designed to control the scalp and the bones of the cranial spine in hopes of restoring vitality and health to the body and to alleviate pain. The goal is to reduce pain and decrease malfunction by realigning the communication channels between the brain and the spinal cord. The principal tools of osteopathic treatment would be the thumbs, the index finger, the middle and index fingers, and sometimes the palm of the hand. These tools are used on either side of the spine, and they work to excite the numerous points along the spine.

Some people today feel that craniosacral therapy works on different levels for different people and that it may even have a healing influence on some people even though the underlying cause of their chronic pain might not be affected. For example, if someone has back pain brought on by an injury or nerve damage, the treatment can help to loosen the tight muscles at the trunk. If the cause of the problem is chronic inflammation, the manipulation can go a long way to treating that as well. If the individual's spinal cord is inflamed, however, that kind of treatment can not do much good; the very best that can really be done is to decrease the inflammation and allow the spinal cord to heal naturally.

There are individuals, however, who experience allergic reactions to some of the materials used in this sort of procedure. People with a particular kind of skin disorder called seborrheic dermatitis are at a particular risk. Craniosacral therapy is not effective in treating acne; it is most efficient in helping to prevent acne. This disease is characterized by scaly patches that form upon the face and neck. The patches are caused by an overproduction of oil in the skin; the sebaceous glands release a lot of oil and clog the pores resulting in the formation of these patches. In acute cases of seborrheic dermatitis, the stains can actually turn into small cysts and lead to permanent scarring.

Acupuncture is just one alternative medicine that's regarded as highly effective in treating acne and other conditions such as constipation, diarrhea, headache, and stress. Additionally it is thought to help with reducing nausea and pain during recovery from a disease. Craniosacral therapy isn't considered a cure-all, however. While it does provide a number of positive benefits, it is important to not forget that this form of alternative medicine isn't appropriate for all kinds of illness and disease.

In order for the techniques and theories used in Craniosacral Therapy, to be fully effective, patients must also comply with the instructions laid out by the practitioners. In addition to following the guidelines of the professionals, patients must also comply with a natural, balance
