Most people find cranial osteopathy to be the most gentle and relaxing of all treatment. Lightly holding the head and allowing very slight changes to occur within the movement of the cerebrospinal fluid that nourishes the brain and spinal cord, profound and far reaching changes can occur in the body’s function and homeostasis.
Cranial osteopathy may be helpful in the treatment of headaches, migraines, and other conditions such as fatigue or insomnia. It may also be a good idea to receive cranial osteopathy (a few weeks later) after any head injury — even a minor one - especially if symptoms persist.
Every head injury and concussion should initially, and immediately, be evaluated at a hospital. Swelling or a bleed in the brain may occur several days, even one or two weeks later, which can lead to worsening symptoms. Later, after returning home from hospital, cranial osteopathy can address any lingering symptoms such as fatigue, nausea, dizziness and headaches.
