What is CranioStructural Integration?
A cranial approach to treating chronic musculoskeletal pain and dysfunction.
Techniques developed by Dr. Hancock to eliminate chronic musculoskeletal compensatory patterns, discovered using applied kinesiology and other techniques.
These patterns respond poorly to most other forms of treatment, including chiropractic, other cranial techniques, various soft tissue therapies, reflex techniques and others. These chronic patterns do respond to CSI, which provides long-term cranial corrections, allowing the body to achieve improvements in posture and musculoskeletal function.
Migraines, Chronic Back and Abdominal Pain
I was introduced to Dr. Hancock’s cranial work in the 1980’s. I had a stressful job and suffered from migraines, chronic back and abdominal pain. After a few treatments my headaches were gone and my chronic pains faded - Read More
Thank you, Flo Barber, for greatly reducing the headaches that I've had for 8+ years after being struck by a drunk driver traveling over 100 mph. After just a few treatments, I experienced a level of pain relief that I wasn't able to achieve in any other way.... My only regret is that I didn't find you sooner! – Beyond Grateful,
Acute or chronic pain is the most frequent complaint of presenting patients in our clinic.
The pain generally involves some combination of:
- shoulder and arm,
- low back,
- sacroiliac joint,
- gluteal region
Many of these symptoms can be attributed to compensatory changes in postural alignment and musculoskeletal function which have occurred in response to the position of the bones of the cranium and the function of their related soft tissues (i.e., muscles, fascia, dural attachments, etc.) of the head and neck regions.
The individual bones of the head normally have slight, but limited movement, at their sutures (junctions with other bones). Collectively, when the bones of the cranium are moved as a functioning unit, an impressive amount of movement is possible. When movement is compromised at individual sutures, the result is alteration of specific and predictable muscle function elsewhere in the body. When the cranial bones are restricted as a unit (e.g., a sphenobasilar strain pattern) the effects on muscle function are diffuse and result in specific and predictable global changes of musculoskeletal function and postural alignment.
CranioSomatic Therapy® addresses restricted cranial patterns and generally results in marked improvement, if not total elimination, of many postural and musculoskeletal symptoms.
It should be noted that cranio (head) – somatic (body) relationships are reciprocal. Changes in postural alignment and/or imbalances in musculoskeletal function typically result in predictable compensatory changes in the position and function of the osseous and soft tissue structures of the cranial region.
The CranioSomatic concepts and procedures used in our clinic are available to other healthcare professionals through workshops, seminars, and lectures. Hancock CranioSomatic Institute offers three (3) groups of CranioSomatic workshops for healthcare professionals:
