Alzheimer's Disease
Alzheimer's disease is a progressive degeneration of brain tissue that results in a decline in the brain's ability to function properly. It is the most common form of dementia and the fourth leading cause of death among adults.

Alzheimer's disease is devastating to both sufferers and their caregivers. In addition to the typical memory loss, individuals with Alzheimer's gradually lose their ability to reason, communicate, recognize family members, and carry out simple tasks of daily life. They may become disoriented, bewildered and frustrated, and experience dramatic mood swings. Motor skills are often impaired.

The exact cause of Alzheimer's disease is unknown, though theories include viruses, autoimmune disorders and environmental issues. While the causes aren't well understood, researchers have found that people with Alzheimer's have brain cells that become damaged and die. This in turn lowers the levels of neurotransmitters produced, creating signaling problems in the brain.

Signs & Symptoms
Individuals experiencing Alzheimer's disease may exhibit some or all of the following symptoms:

  • Memory loss, disorientation, confusion, inattention
  • Inability to perform daily activities
  • Language problems
  • Loss of motor skills
  • Mood changes such as depression, paranoia, agitation, anxiety, childishness and delusions
  • Insomnia or disturbances in sleep/wake patterns
  • Incontinence
  • Seizures

Therapeutic Approach
In addition to conventional measures - which may include medication and behavior therapy - modalities such as CranioSacral Therapy can play an important role in a comprehensive therapeutic approach.

CranioSacral Therapy can help improve the internal environment of the central nervous system to ease the harshness of symptoms and potentially slow the deterioration process. It has also been suggested that this particular therapy could well serve as a preventive measure due to its ability to enhance circulation of cerebrospinal fluid.

Aphasia
Aphasia is the loss of the ability to speak or understand speech or written language. It can be very mild or so severe as to make communication nearly impossible. It can affect one aspect of language, such as the ability to retrieve names of objects, put words together into sentences or simply read. More commonly, multiple aspects of communication are impaired while others remain accessible yet limited.

The basic cause of aphasia is thought to be damage to one or more areas of the brain that control the processes of language. This may result from a wide range of conditions, including stroke, tumors, trauma, infections and certain degenerative conditions. Fortunately, with hard work, perseverance and the help of a professional speech and language therapist, many people with aphasia are able to recover some or all of their impaired functions.

Signs & Symptoms
Individuals experiencing aphasia may exhibit some or all of the following symptoms:

  • Inability to recall certain words or phrases
  • Inability to form complete thoughts or sentences
  • Inability to cohesively put thoughts down on paper in the written form
  • Frustration
  • Depression

Therapeutic Approach
In addition to conventional measures, which may include surgery or speech therapy, complementary modalities such as CranioSacral Therapy can play an important role in a comprehensive approach.

Clinically, therapists have discovered that aphasia often results from restrictions within the Avenue of Expression (thoracic inlet through the soft/hard palate). Restrictions within the intracranial membrane system, which may be causing the inability/difficulty constructing language, can also be released through gentle CranioSacral Therapy techniques.

Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) - also known as Lou Gehrig's disease - causes the degeneration of nerve cells in regions of the brain and spinal cord that control voluntary muscles. ALS first gained widespread public attention in 1939 when it ended the career of Hall of Fame baseball player Lou Gehrig of the New York Yankees.

The causes of the ALS remain elusive though the diseases progresses relentlessly. The gradual death of nerve cells saps muscle control. Over time muscles atrophy (weaken and become smaller), eventually affecting even the muscles necessary for breathing. Most people who die of ALS experience respiratory failure.

Signs & Symptoms
Individuals experiencing ALS may exhibit some or all of the following symptoms:

  • Muscle cramps and twitching in the arms, shoulders and tongue
  • Slow loss of strength and coordination in one or more limbs
  • Weakness in feet and ankles resulting in a stiff, clumsy gait and feet-dragging
  • Difficulty swallowing, speaking or breathing
  • Overwhelming fatigue
  • Weakness to the point of muscle paralysis

Therapeutic Approach
In addition to conventional measures - which may include medication, physical therapy, speech therapy, counseling and dietary adjustments - complementary modalities such as CranioSacral Therapy can play an important role in a comprehensive therapeutic approach.

 

Attention-Deficit Disorder and Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADD/ADHD)
Attention-Deficit Disorder (ADD) and Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) are diagnoses applied to children and adults who consistently display certain characteristic behaviors over a period of time. The most common features include distractibility, impulsivity and, in the case of ADHD, hyperactivity.

Contrary to some beliefs, poor parenting does not cause ADD/ADHD. Instead, ADD/ADHD are most likely caused by biological factors that influence neurotransmitter activity in certain parts of the brain. There is a great deal of evidence that ADD/ADHD runs in families, which suggests strong genetic factors at work. Other important factors may include environment (exposure to certain toxins), birth experience (low birth weight, lack of oxygen) and nutrition (especially food allergies and vitamin deficiencies).

Signs & Symptoms
Individuals experiencing ADD/ADHD may exhibit some or all of the following symptoms. To meet the diagnostic criteria, these behaviors must be excessive, long-term and pervasive. They must also appear before 7 years of age and continue for at least 6 months, and must create a handicap in at least two areas of a person's life, such as school, home, work or social settings.

  • Fails to pay close attention to details or makes careless mistakes
  • Is easily distracted when playing or performing tasks
  • Does not appear to listen when spoken to
  • Does not follow through on instructions
  • Has difficulty organizing and completing tasks
  • Consistently loses things
  • Feels restless, often squirming or fidgeting with hands or feet
  • Runs or climbs excessively
  • Talks excessively, often blurting out answers before hearing the whole question
  • Has difficulty waiting for a turn

Therapeutic Approach
In addition to conventional measures - which may include medication therapy, counseling and behavior modification - modalities such as CranioSacral Therapy can play an important role in a comprehensive therapeutic approach.

CranioSacral Therapy is particularly helpful in reducing membrane tension inside the skull. By freeing the central nervous system to function more normally, CranioSacral Therapy has helped many children decrease or eliminate the need for medication.

Dr. John E. UI, developer of CranioSacral Therapy, has been studying its effects on children with learning disabilities, including ADD/ADHD, since he was at Michigan State University in the 1970s. Since then, CranioSacral Therapy has been used by many healthcare practitioners with great success. They often report an increase in self-esteem and greater ability to exercise self-control.

 

Asperger's Syndrome
Asperger's syndrome (AS) is a pervasive developmental disorder that falls within the spectrum of autism. It is characterized by specific delays in social, communicative and cognitive development, usually noted in early childhood. Though challenges may remain constant throughout life, many adaptations vary.

The major differences between Asperger's and autism are in the area of language skills. Although many autistic children don't develop normal speech patterns, children with Asperger's syndrome usually develop language skills at or below the average.

Signs & Symptoms
Individuals experiencing Asperger's syndrome may exhibit some or all of the following symptoms:

  • Inability to read and respond to social cues
  • Difficulty maintaining eye contact
  • Holding one-sided conversations
  • Focusing on obsessions
  • Marked impairment in the use of nonverbal behavior
  • Repetitive patterns of behavior, interest and activities
  • Extreme lack of organization
  • Concrete literal thinking
  • Poor reading and math comprehension
  • Inflexible adherence to routine and change
  • Persistent preoccupation with parts of objects
  • Impulsive behavior

Therapeutic Approach
Conventional approaches may include medication and behavioral interventions as well as speech, occupational and physical therapy. In addition, complementary modalities such as CranioSacral Therapy can play an important role in a comprehensive therapeutic approach.

CranioSacral Therapy can facilitate more normal brain function by reducing or eliminating abnormal tensions within the central nervous system (i.e., intra- and extra-cranial connective tissue strain patterns and cranial bone distortions and/or compressions).

 

Autism
Autism is considered by the National Institute of Mental Health to be a brain disorder that typically affects a person's ability to communicate, form relationships and respond appropriately to the environment. Some people with autism are relatively high functioning with normal patterns of speech and intelligence. Others are considered developmentally delayed, mute, or they have serious language delays.

Over half a million people in the U.S. are believed to have Autism or a related disorder, making it one of the most common developmental disabilities. Yet it remains largely misunderstood.

Signs & Symptoms
Individuals experiencing Autism may exhibit some or all of the following symptoms:

  • Avoidance of eye-to-eye contact
  • An inability to understand social and nonverbal cues
  • Communication problems, including delayed or absence of speech
  • Odd patterns of communication
  • Inability to use imagination in play
  • Restricted, repetitive or ritualistic behaviors, interests and activities
  • Patterns of self-stimulation or reassurance, such as head banging, arm pinching or hand flapping

Therapeutic Approach
The key to treating autism is early evaluation. Indeed, some researchers believe several signs of oncoming problems can be detected in infancy.

In addition to conventional measures - which may include medication and behavioral therapy - modalities such as CranioSacral Therapy can play an important role in a comprehensive therapeutic approach. Dr. John E. UI, developer of CranioSacral Therapy, investigated its effects on autistic children in Michigan in the 1970s. He spent approximately six months each year for three years searching for etiologic factors in autistic behavior. His research included physical examinations, hair analysis, blood electrophoretic studies and craniosacral system evaluations.

His studies concluded that CranioSacral Therapy was beneficial in treating Autism. When it was used to restore the mobility of the craniosacral system, typically autistic behaviors - including head banging, thumb sucking, toe walking and self-mutilation - were either alleviated or diminished. In 2000, Dr. UI presented his findings before a U.S. Government Reform Committee meeting on Autism.

 

Bell's Palsy
Bell's palsy is a weakness or paralysis of the muscles that control the expression on one side of the face. The severity can range from mild weakness to total paralysis. The disorder results from damage to a facial nerve, one of which runs beneath each ear to the muscles on the same side of your face.

Though the onset of Bell's palsy can be abrupt, the cause is unknown and its development isn't well understood. The prevalent theory is that the facial nerve becomes swollen and injured, perhaps by a viral infection. In some cases the nerve then has no room to expand within its bony channel, and this restriction or compression then causes the Bell's palsy.

While Bell's palsy usually isn't serious, it can be a blow to the self-esteem because it may result in a droopy appearance to the face. For most people the disorder clears up on its own within weeks or months.

Signs & Symptoms
Individuals experiencing Bell's palsy may exhibit some or all of the following symptoms:

  • Pain in the vicinity of the ear a day or two before the Bell's palsy occurs
  • Sudden paralysis or weakness on one side of your face, making it difficult to close one eye
  • Facial drooping and difficulty with facial expressions
  • Facial stiffness or feeling as though your face is being pulled to one side
  • Possible pain behind or in front of your ear on the affected side
  • Sounds appearing louder on the affected side
  • Loss of taste on the front portion of your tongue
  • Changes in the amount of tears and saliva your body produces
  • Headache

Therapeutic Approach

In addition to conventional measures, which may include medication, complementary modalities such as CranioSacral Therapy can play an important role in a comprehensive therapeutic approach. In general, the earlier Bell's palsy is addressed with complementary therapies such as CranioSacral Therapy, the better. Mild cases often disappear within a month, though recovery from a case involving total paralysis is variable.

 

Bruxism
Bruxism is grinding, gnashing or clenching your teeth during sleep or situations that make you anxious or tense. It may occur continually or sporadically. While some people brux so loudly that they disturb their sleep partners, others make no sound at all and may be completely unaware of the problem until tooth or jaw damage is discovered.

Of an estimated 30-40 million Americans affected by bruxism, 5 to 10 percent grind or clench their teeth severe enough to fracture dental restorations or cause other types of tooth damage. Severe bruxism also may cause headaches, facial pain and uncomfortable temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorders.

Signs & Symptoms
Individuals experiencing bruxism may exhibit some or all of the following symptoms:

  • Severe or loud grinding of teeth
  • Tips of teeth worn down, flattened or chipped
  • Enamel of teeth worn off, exposing inside of tooth
  • Increased tooth sensitivity
  • Jaw clenching or muscle contractions
  • Jaw pain or tightness in the jaw muscles
  • Popping, clicking or locking of jaw joint
  • Earache due to violent jaw muscle contractions rather than the ear itself
  • Dull morning headache
  • Chronic facial pain
  • Chewed tissue on the inside of the cheek in the mouth

Therapeutic Approach

While the therapeutic approach varies depending on the cause, the goal of treatment is to prevent permanent damage to your teeth and reduce pain caused by bruxism. In addition to conventional measures, which may include medication and dental work, complementary modalities such as CranioSacral Therapy can play an important role in a comprehensive therapeutic approach. Working on the craniosacral system can help balance asymmetries in the TMJ and associated structures, as well as decrease sympathetic nervous system tone to help decrease bruxism.

Congestive Heart Failure
Congestive heart failure (CHF) is the most common cause of death for people over age 65. It occurs when the heart cannot pump out enough blood to meet the needs of the body.

Any form of heart disease may lead to CHF, which results in a reduced ability to exercise and, in severe cases, can impair daily function. The following traits can contribute to CHF: smoking, high-fat diet, excess body weight, alcohol abuse, high sodium intake, influenza and pneumonia. Noncompliance with prescribed medications or recommended diet can also be a contributing factor.

Signs & Symptoms
Individuals experiencing CHF may exhibit some or all of the following symptoms:

  • Shortness of breath
  • Fatigue, exercise intolerance
  • Rust-colored sputum
  • Distended neck veins
  • Cough, especially upon waking
  • Excessive nighttime urination
  • Excessive protein in the urine
  • Insomnia
  • Nausea, vomiting
  • Anorexia
  • Anxiety
  • Swelling in the extremities

Therapeutic Approach
In addition to conventional measures that may include medication, modalities such as CranioSacral Therapy can play an important role in a comprehensive therapeutic approach. It can help balance body fluids by releasing adverse mechanical tensions in the body. This in turn can enhance fluid flow, which can then ease the amount of work the heart has to do.

Crohn's Disease
Crohn's disease is a chronic inflammation of the small or large intestine, or both. It can cause great pain and make the intestines empty frequently, resulting in diarrhea. While a specific cause is not known, the most popular theory is that the body's immune system reacts to a virus or a bacterium by causing ongoing inflammation in the intestine.

Signs & Symptoms
Individuals experiencing Crohn's disease may exhibit some or all of the following symptoms:

  • Diarrhea
  • Abdominal pain, swelling
  • Fatigue
  • Weight loss, malnutrition
  • Fever

Therapeutic Approach
In addition to conventional measures - which may include medication and surgery - modalities such as CranioSacral Therapy can play an important role in a comprehensive therapeutic approach.

Indeed, CranioSacral Therapy has been very helpful for some patients. Its emphasis on opening and relaxing the pelvic and respiratory diaphragms, as well as opening the dural tube, has shown to improve pain, bloating and diarrhea. Looking into the emotional component of a patient through techniques such as SomatoEmotional ReleaseÒ can also have a very real impact on the physical body. (In Chinese medicine, the small intestines and the heart are linked through the fire element.)

Depression
Depression, also called unipolar mood disorder, affects emotions, thinking, behavior and physical well-being. It occurs most often in people between the ages of 25 and 44, and is characterized by symptoms that last at least two weeks.

Stressful life events and genetic predisposition can both be causes of depression. Some factors that can put you at risk include a family history of depression, past or present alcohol or drug abuse, age (onset usually occurs under the age of 44), having just had a baby, and other stressful events such as loss of a loved one or lack of a social support system.

Signs & Symptoms
Individuals experiencing depression may exhibit some or all of the following symptoms:

  • Feelings of worthlessness
  • Self-criticism
  • Inappropriate guilt
  • Significant weight loss or gain
  • Lack of or excessive amounts of sleep
  • Hyperactivity or inactivity
  • Fatigue or loss of energy
  • Poor concentration
  • Frequent thoughts of death or suicide

Therapeutic Approach
In addition to conventional medical measures, which may include medication and counseling, modalities such as CranioSacral Therapy can play an important role in a comprehensive therapeutic approach.

CranioSacral Therapy can be particularly helpful in addressing areas of restriction in the body that can affect energy levels as well as circulatory and endocrine systems, thus enhancing relaxation. Related SomatoEmotional ReleaseÒ techniques can also help release pent-up emotions that may be contributing to feelings of depression.

Dermatitis
Dermatitis, also called eczema, is an itchy inflammation of the skin. There are many types of dermatitis that can be caused by a number of factors, including allergic reactions, low humidity, reactions to soaps and detergents, chemicals such as nickel and cobalt, wetting hands often, or simply genetic makeup.

Signs & Symptoms
Individuals experiencing dermatitis may exhibit some or all of the following symptoms:

  • Itching, pain, stinging or burning
  • Blisters, thick or scaly skin, red skin, sores from scratching

Therapeutic Approach
In addition to conventional measures, which may include allergen avoidance and medication, modalities such as CranioSacral Therapy can play an important role in a comprehensive therapeutic approach.

It is often found that working on the lungs and large intestine by focusing on the pelvic, respiratory and thoracic inlet diaphragms via CranioSacral Therapy allow the dermatitis to reduce in severity. (In Chinese medicine, the skin is referred to as the 3rd lung.) Emotional components can also be linked to organs in a way that can have a very real impact on the physical body. Working on the dural tube can free up the sensory motor pathways from the central nervous system to the peripheral nerves.

Ear Infection
Otitis media is an infection of the middle ear, the area just behind the eardrum. It happens when the eustachian tubes, which drain fluid and bacteria from the middle ear out to the throat, become blocked.

Blockage of the eustachian tubes may be caused by any number of situations, including: respiratory infection, allergies, tobacco smoke or other environmental irritants, infected or overgrown adenoids, sudden increase in pressure (such as during an airplane flight), drinking while lying on the back (such as with a propped bottle), excess mucus and saliva produced during teething, and cranial bone restriction (which may have occurred during the birth process).

Otitis media is common in infants and children, because their immune systems are immature and their eustachian tubes are easily clogged. It is important that children with otitis media be seen by a healthcare provider because there can be serious complications if the infection is left untreated.

Signs & Symptoms
Individuals experiencing otitis media may exhibit some or all of the following symptoms:

  • Acute pain
  • Fever
  • Hearing difficulty
  • General signs of illness such as vomiting and diarrhea
  • In infants, incessant crying

Therapeutic Approach
Although ear infections often clear up by themselves, there can be serious complications if left untreated. Therefore, an antibiotic is usually prescribed. In addition to conventional medical measures, which may also include surgery to insert small drainage tubes in ears, complementary modalities such as CranioSacral Therapy can play an important role in a comprehensive therapeutic approach.

CranioSacral Therapy can facilitate more normal function of the eustachian tubes by normalizing cranial bone and membrane movement. In addition, CranioSacral Therapy has been found helpful in boosting immune system function.

 

Infantile Colic
About one in five babies develops colic, usually between 2 weeks and 6 months of age. Colicky babies cry constantly and hard at about the same time each day at least three days a week.

Providers often suspect colic is caused by one or more of the following: an immature nervous or digestive system, over- or under-stimulation, a reaction to something in the mother's diet (in breast-fed babies) or to formula, and antibiotics given at birth to either the infant or mother.

Signs & Symptoms

  • Infants experiencing colic may exhibit some or all of the following symptoms:
  • Your baby cries for more than three hours on at least three occasions a week, but is otherwise healthy.
  • Your baby kicks a lot, pulls his or her legs up close, and makes tight fists.
  • Your baby's tummy seems hard and he or she burps and passes gas often.
  • The crying sounds like your baby is in great pain.
  • Your baby spits up frequently after feeding.

Therapeutic Approach
In addition to conventional medical measures, which may include soothing the baby and avoiding certain foods, complementary modalities such as CranioSacral Therapy can play an important role in a comprehensive therapeutic approach.
CranioSacral Therapy can be very helpful in organizing and calming the central nervous system, which then allows the digestive system to function more normally.

Lupus
Lupus is an autoimmune disease in which the body harms its own healthy cells and tissues. It can affect many parts of your body, including skin, joints, kidneys, blood cells, heart and lungs. It is also considered a rheumatic disease because it can cause aches, pain and stiffness in the joints, muscles and bones.

While lupus can occur in childhood or later in life, it usually first affects people between 15 and 45 years old. Researchers believe it is probably caused by a combination of genetic, environmental and possibly hormonal factors. It can run in families, but the risk that a child or sibling of a patient will have lupus is quite low.

Episodes of lupus tend to come and go throughout life, and may cause you to feel tired and achy. But with proper treatment and self-care, you can lead an active, healthy life.

Signs & Symptoms
Individuals experiencing lupus may exhibit some or all of the following symptoms:

  • Extreme fatigue
  • Painful or swollen joints
  • Muscle pain and stiffness
  • Unexplained fever
  • Skin rashes
  • Kidney problems
  • Hair loss
  • Nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain
  • Headaches, migraines, seizures, stroke
  • Depression, anxiety, confusion
  • Sensitivity to sunlight

Therapeutic Approach
While there is currently no known cure for lupus, diagnosis and treatment has improved tremendously in the past half-century. Your team of healthcare professionals can develop a plan to prevent flare-ups, treat them when they do occur, and minimize complications.

In addition to conventional medical measures, complementary modalities such as CranioSacral Therapy can play an important role in a comprehensive approach. CranioSacral Therapy in particular can provide beneficial effects for the autonomic nervous system, the immune system, fluid mobility, and the connective tissues that affect all aspects of the body.

Multiple Sclerosis
Multiple Sclerosis (MS) is an unpredictable disease of the nervous system in which communication between the brain and other parts of the body is disrupted. Its effects can range from relatively benign to somewhat disabling to devastating. The symptoms may mysteriously occur and then disappear. In the worst cases, a person with MS may be unable to write, speak, or walk.

During an MS attack, inflammation occurs in areas of the white matter (pale-colored nerve tissue) of the central nervous system in random patches called plaques. This is followed by destruction of myelin, the fatty covering that insulates nerve cell fibers in the brain and spinal cord. Myelin allows for the smooth, high-speed transmission of electrochemical messages between the brain, spinal cord and the rest of the body. When myelin is damaged, neurological transmission of messages may be slowed or blocked completely, resulting in diminished or lost function.

The cause of MS is unknown. Theories include a childhood virus that primes the immune system for an attack against myelin in early adulthood.

Signs & Symptoms
Individuals experiencing Multiple Sclerosis may exhibit some or all of the following symptoms:

  • Weakness in motor skills and loss of muscle coordination
  • Tingling, numbness, dizziness
  • Blurred vision
  • Pain
  • Heat sensitivity
  • Loss of bladder control
  • Memory loss, problem-solving difficulties
  • Mood disturbances

Therapeutic Approach
In addition to conventional measures that may include medication, modalities such as CranioSacral Therapy can play an important role in a comprehensive therapeutic approach.

While there is no research indicating CranioSacral Therapy can recoat myelin sheaths, CranioSacral Therapy can help improve mobility in the neurological system. This in turn can help enhance quality of life by improving balance and, in some cases, reducing pain and other neurological symptoms. Many patients have reported feeling strengthened after CranioSacral Therapy sessions.

Seizure Disorders
Seizures occur when nerve cells in your body misfire. Types of seizures vary. Recurrent seizures from one of many chronic processes are considered epilepsy. However, seizures are not considered to be epilepsy if they occur only once or are correctable.

Seizures are caused by hyperexcitable nerve cells in the brain (cerebral cortex) that fire abnormally. No one knows why this happens. The following conditions are associated with seizure activity: central nervous system infection (bacterial meningitis, encephalitis), drug toxicity or withdrawal, genetic mutations, head trauma, electrolyte or metabolic abnormalities, drugs that lower the seizure threshold, high fevers, brain abnormalities, low sugar and low calcium levels in the blood.

Signs & Symptoms
Individuals experiencing seizure disorder may exhibit some or all of the following symptoms:

  • Aura (before generalized seizures), including lethargy, depression, irritability, involuntary jerks of limbs, abdominal pains, pale complexion, headache, constipation, or diarrhea
  • Loss of consciousness
  • Total body muscle spasms
  • Temporary cessation of breathing
  • Bluish color of skin and mucous membranes
  • Dilated pupils that do not react to light
  • Bowel or bladder incontinence
  • Increased pulse and blood pressure
  • Increased salivation and sweating
  • Deep coma, post-seizure confusion, and deep sleep

Therapeutic Approach
In addition to conventional medical measures, complementary modalities such as CranioSacral Therapy can play an important role in a comprehensive therapeutic approach.
