Cranial Sacral Work in Royal Oak

At Van Every Family Chiropractic Center, we do considerable cranial work that gets excellent results for our patients. Let’s take a closer look at exactly what cranial work is and why it’s valuable.

Cranial care has been practiced in different cultures for thousands of years. Considerable clinical research documents that if your cranial bones are not in their correct position (locked or subluxated), your physical and mental health can suffer.

The Skull’s Composition

Your skull is not just one bone but is made up of many cranial bones. Eight larger bones protect your brain and 14 smaller bones make up the lower front of your skull. Your cranial bones are not fused but stay distinct and separate throughout your life. Each bone moves uniquely.

Sutures are the spaces between the bones. These areas are filled with connective tissue, nerves and blood vessels. To maintain optimal health, it’s essential that your cranial bones move properly.

What Can Cranial Subluxations Cause?

Subluxations of the cranial bones can cause an array of health problems. These include

  • Asthma
  • Back and neck problems
  • Depression
  • Dizziness
  • Facial pain
  • Headaches
  • Hearing loss
  • Learning disabilities
  • Vision disturbances
There are many causes of cranial subluxations. These include trauma from falls, accidents or sports-related injuries. Other common causes include severe emotional stress, environmental toxins and a difficult birth or prenatal stress.

How We Adjust Cranial Bones

Koren Specific Technique (KST) works directly on your cranium. We use a little tool that gently taps the cranial bones into the right position. KST unlocks or releases cranial subluxations. As a result, the pressure is removed from the brain and spinal cord and the nervous system in general. We use this quick, light-force procedure that patients (from infants to the elderly) typically find comfortable.

Another benefit of KST cranial adjustments is they usually hold or stay in place for an extended period. Occasionally, a cranial bone may require more than one correction if there was a severe head injury, multiple traumas or dehydration. With KST, you can be healthier, both physically and emotionally.
