Sphenoid bone and KST Chiropractic care at Van Every in Royal Oak MI

What is a Sphenoid?

It is considered the most important of the cranial bones because it touches (directly or indirectly) every other bone in the skull. If the sphenoid is out of proper alignment (subluxated), the entire skull, spinal column and even the brain may be affected.

The sphenobasilar (SB) junction

The sphenoid joins at the bottom of the skull with the occipital bone to form the sphenobasilar (SB) junction or joint. This junction acts like a pump to move a special fluid known as cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) throughout your nervous system. CSF delivers nutrients to your brain, spinal cord and nerves and removes wastes. Its chemistry affects the proper functioning of your immune system as well as your nervous system.

What can a sphenoid/sphenobasilar (SB) subluxation do to me?

If the sphenoid is subluxated, it can cause many different physical and mental problems. The list of these conditions is long and includes depression, endocrine disturbances, migraines, headaches, and many more.

Fixing the sphenoid pattern with KST

The cranial bones are first analyzed to see if they are out of position or not moving properly (subluxated). If analysis reveals a subluxation, the Doctors at Van Every Family Chiropractic Center will use an adjusting instrument called the Arthrostim to correct the subluxation.
