Cranial Adjusting

CranialJust as Subluxations are minor misalignments in the spine, subluxations do not stop at the spine, because trauma is not limited to the spine and extremities.
The human skull is comprised of 13 plates (bones) that are joined together with suture joints.  The “old-school” way off thinking was that these plates fuse as the child grows.  This has been proven to be false. Although the sutures cannot be pulled apart, the bones in the skull can be knocked out of their proper alignment, causing indentations or elevations that can be felt on the surface of the head.
The first head injury can occur during childbirth with the use of forceps of vacuum extraction.  Later, falls in infancy resulting in the head hitting the edge of a coffee table or if the child is tumbles down the stairs can result in cranial misalignment. In addition, the incidence of head injuries due to baseball bats, swings, balls, pucks, fists, sports injuries, car and industrial accidents are extremely common.
Post-concussion syndrome is an excellent example of what happens when a head injury is not corrected. The injury to the head is sufficient enough to cause temporary unconsciousness in some cases. The patient survives, but has many acute symptoms such as headaches, blurred vision, ringing in the ears, speech difficulties, memory lapses, brain fog, emotional irregularities, decreased reflexes, altered coordination, and behaviour changes for years to come.
Just as the bones of the skull can misalign, they can be re-aligned with a safe and gentle adjustment.  Dr. Nick Daniels is one of only a handful of Chiropractors in Ontario trained in cranial joint adjusting.
