CranioSacral Therapy is a somewhat divisive new procedure that aims to relive pain and tension in the body through pressure and massage near the base of the skull and neck. It is vitally important that any procedure focused on the central nervous system and the neck or brain only be performed by a licensed and experienced physician.
Advocates of CranioSacral Therapy allege that treatment can help improve migraines, headaches, back and neck pain, stress-related disorders, chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, TMJ, and PTSD. At Great Lakes Orthopedics, we advocate fully investigating any procedure before you accept treatment and speaking with one of our highly trained doctors before undergoing therapy that could affect the brain.
CST attempts to massage and normalize the environment around the brain and spinal cord. It can be dangerous for patients with an acute aneurysm, cerebral hemorrhage or any other bleeding disorder.
