You just generated thought, used an untold number of neurons, transmitted impulses, thoughts, ideas and messages over millions of synapses just to click on this page and read this. The ability to focus, learn, memorize, comprehend, filter and triage information well uses your brain. But what if the bridges and neural roads these thought and actions must take are strained, pressured or twisted? Nerves and brain tissue respond dramatically to pressure and tension, in fact they nearly cease functioning under adversity.
So what happens if the case holding the brain is altered by an accident? Properly formed neural cells are then, in some areas, under pressure, and tension- a debilitating condition for them.
So what happens if the case holding the brain is misshaped from birth? Space is then limited for certain neural areas to grow, while other areas may have too much.
Our system, brain and spinal cord, is dynamic to a degree, but misshape causes a host of symptoms. Testing shows communication between brain hemispheres to be reduced with certain cranial strains / deformities. It is even possible to diagnose the structural problem based on neural connectivity tests that show how well or deficient different areas of the brain are communicating.
Here is a brief list of the most common issues we see in office, this list being those that parents and patients have related to us as conditions with which they have seen good to dramatic improvement. Some of these issues may arise from other reasons other than structural cranial issues, but this is a list of the most popular conditions we see:
Delayed or compromised learning
ADD Attention Deficit Disorder
ADHD Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder
ODD Oppositional Defiant Disorder
Mental clarity, fog or disconnect
Inability to process information well
