Behavioral Problems

Free motion of all 24 cranial bones allows the brain to function at its optimum. Not only does the cerebral spinal fluid need to circulate freely for good nutrition of brain cellular activity, but the proper drainage of used blood out of the head relies entirely on the cranial bone motion.

Often a child in pain will exhibit behavior problems, from abnormal disinterest, to sadness, to violence.

Once I had an eight-year-old girl brought to me for the treatment of asthma. On the second visit I moved a very locked up right temporal bone (bone around the ear) that was most probably due to birth trauma. On the next visit, the mother pulled me aside and said there had been a remarkable personality change in her daughter. She had become so happy, her mother said, that I asked her why she was so happy. She said because her ear had finally stopped hurting!

The above experience has been repeated in different ways in my office on many occasions. If a baby grows up with very tight compromised motion in the body, the child has no way of knowing that anything can be different.
