What is CranioSacral Therapy?

CranioSacral Therapy (CST) is a gentle, hands-on method of evaluating and enhancing the function of the CranioSacral system – the physiological body system comprised of the membranes and cerebrospinal fluid that surround and protect the brain and spinal cord.

Using a soft touch generally no greater than 5 grams, or about the weight of a nickel, practitioners evaluate and release restrictions in the CranioSacral system to improve the functioning of the central nervous system and potentially every other system with which it interacts.

CranioSacral Therapy was developed by osteopathic physician John E. Upledger, DO, OMM, following extensive research from 1975 to 1983 at Michigan State University, where he served as a clinical researcher and Professor of Biomechanics.

CranioSacral Therapy enhances/complements the body’s natural healing processes to improve functioning of the central nervous system, dissipate the negative effects of stress, enhance health, and bolster resistance to disease. Being such a gentle approach, CST has proven to be effective for all ages, from newborns to elderly.

Some of the medical conditions for which CST has shown to be effective / alleviate symptoms are:

  • Migraine Headaches
  • Concussions / Traumatic Brain Injuries
  • Orthopedic Problems
  • Learning Disabilities
  • Chronic Fatigue
  • Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder
  • Fibromyalgia and other Connective Tissue Disorders
  • Stress and Tension-Related Problems
  • Infantile Disorders (e.g. Torticollis, Latching problems)
  • Chronic Neck and Back Pain
  • Post-Surgical Pain/Dysfunctions
  • Scoliosis
  • Autism Spectrum Disorders
  • Central Nervous System Disorders
  • TMJ Dysfunction

CST is intended to complement, not replace, your physician’s medical advice & care.

Physical Therapy & Beyond is now offering CranioSacral Therapy sessions. Please call 248-865-4148 for appointments or to contact our therapist for more information.

Vestibular Exercises

Vestibular compensation is a process that allows the brain to regain balance control and minimize dizziness symptoms when there is damage to, or an imbalance between, the right and left vestibular organs (balance organs) in the inner ear. Essentially, the brain copes with the disorientating signals coming from the inner ears by learning to rely more on alternative signals coming from the eyes, ankles, legs and neck to maintain balance.

Each person is affected differently by dizziness and balance problems and you should speak with your physician for individual advice. This information on vestibular rehabilitation exercises is designed as general introduction for people with dizziness and balance problems aimed at reducing uncertainty and anxiety by providing clear, concise, accurate and helpful information. It is not a comprehensive list nor is intended to replace the advice from your specialist or individualized therapy treatment programs.

You should be assessed for an individualized exercise program to ensure you are doing the appropriate exercises. As a general rule, you should build up gradually from one set of exercises to the next, spending no more than one to two minutes on each exercise. Always rest in between exercises to allow your symptoms to return to baseline. You might find that your dizziness problems get worse for a few days after you start the exercises, but you should persevere with them.

The exercises may be recommended in bed, sitting, standing or when moving/walking on various surfaces.

Make sure that you are in a safe environment before you start any exercise to reduce the risk of injury. Do not complete any exercises if you feel that you are at risk of falling without safety measures in place to prevent injury.

It is also important to note that you may experience mild dizziness whilst doing these exercises. This is completely normal. The exercises should be completed slowly at first. As the exercise becomes easier over time you can start to do them more quickly.

PLEASE NOTE: That you should not attempt any of these exercises without first seeing a specialist or physical therapist for a comprehensive assessment, advice and guidance. Some of these exercises will not be suitable for everyone, and some are only suitable for certain conditions.
