About Cranial Adjustments
Did you know that skull is made up of 22 bones? The abnormal movement of these 22 bones can restrict the movement of Cerebral Spinal Fluid (CSF).
These bones can become temporarily deformed and relocated due to, among others, the birth process, a hit to the head, or long-standing subluxations to the spine.
When this movement of CSF restricted by bones, it can cause fluid stagnation which can lead to the development of adverse symptoms in the body. This restriction is similar to having standing water in your yard which kills your grass rather than nourishes it.
Any issues in this area are critical in nature since the skull houses the brain and the meningeal systems that connect to your spinal column. CSF fluid that bathes the brain and spinal column should move around the brain, down the spine, and back up.
This movement of CSF acts as a lymphatic drainage system, brings fresh blood to the brain, and delivers the nutrients it needs to thrive.
Cranial adjustments are safe for all ages especially newborns and children. It can be a little uncomfortable the first time depending on the injury and how recent it has happened.
This is important to your overall health and wellbeing since CSF is vital to your brain and spinal cord.
