    Breath Better with Dr. Dan, Cranial facial release!

    Breath Better with Dr. Dan, Cranial facial release!

    Cranial facial release, also often referred to as CFR, is an advanced endonasal cranial procedure. It has proved its efficacy in treating multiple structural and neurological disorders. This technique is designed to improve mobility in the cranial system, thereby enhancing cranial respiratory function, or how your skull and nasal bones open up to allow air to come into a persons body through their nose.

      It is a specialized technique that was derived from an earlier form of endo-nasal cranial adjusting called Bilateral Nasal Specific (BNS) pioneered by chiropractor Richard Stober in the 1960's and 70's.  CFR was originated by Dr. Adam Del Torto, DC and is an offshoot of BNS, but is much more specific and much less invasive. 

    The objective of CFR technique is to unlock cranial fixations and induce mobility in the cranial system - primarily targeting the sphenoid bone, with the purpose of facilitating normal cranial respiratory motion and normal cranial function.   This technique is performed by inserting tiny balloons in the nose (specifically the naso pharynx) that are quickly inflated to mobilize the bones of the face and cranium.   It is a very fast procedure and feels similar to the sensation of jumping into a swimming pool and having water shoot up your nose – it isn’t exactly painful, but not the most comfortable sensation either – but it’s quick!  The whole process takes about 2 to 3 seconds, and can be performed in a series of 4 individual days of treatment over a 7-10 day period, or even quicker if a person only has a weekend to allow for care.

    To understand how CFR works, it is important to realize that the skull is NOT one solid bone.  It is made up of 22 individual bones that actually move every time you breathe – or at least they are supposed to.  But cranial fixations are a common occurrence and often times the root cause of many chronic neurological conditions and recurrent pain syndromes that don’t respond to conventional chiropractic adjusting procedures.  Frequent causes of cranial aberrations and sutural fixations are things like head trauma, birth trauma, uneven bite force (TMJ disorder), bruxism, etc., yet these conditions are seldom detected and rarely addressed by chiropractors.   

    It is important to realize that cranial motion is not “gross osseous movement” – it is more of an expansion & relaxation type of movement, with each cranial bone having its own specific direction of motion.  This "cranial respiratory motion” works in direct conjunction with “sacral respiratory motion” and is the key mechanism by which Cerebral Spinal Fluid (CSF) is produced in the choroid plexus and circulated throughout the brain and spinal cord.  This is essential to normal brain function which is essential to normal body function, embodying the basic scientific and philosophical foundation of chiropractic.

    What differentiates Cranial Facial Release from other endo-nasal techniques is that CFR is based on SOT (Sacro Occipital Technique) protocols with emphasis being placed on clearing everything below the level of the Atlas before adjusting the cranium.  By “clearing everything below the Atlas” we are referring to the methods by which we locate and remove spinal subluxations and reduce torque off the dura before it enters into the cranial vault using SOT procedures and conventional chiropractic adjusting techniques. Relieving Dural Torque is a primary objective of CFR technique, as it plays an intricate role in cranial function and more importantly brain function.  But relieving dural torque has an even greater effect on body function than just optimizing brain function.  By reducing dural tension at its anterior attachment (at the diaphragma selli, which engulfs & ensheaths the base of the pituitary) it reduces mechanical torque on the pituitary gland and helps facilitate normal endocrine function.

    Things you should consider when dealing with knee pain.

    Things you should consider when dealing with knee pain.

    Approximately 700000 arthroscopic knee surgeries are done in America each year at a cost of about $5000 each or about 35 million annually. Interesting or sadly in a study at the University of Oslo, published in Science Daily three out of four of these individuals could avoid meniscus surgery with conservative therapies. In addition out of the additional total knee replacements done in the United States each year 1/3rd of patients are not appropriate candidates for this aggressive surgery, as published in the 2014 edition of Arthritis and Rheumatology.
    So let’s look at conservative remedies for knee repair and reduction of pain.
    A Stanford University study showed that a majority of our body cells replace every 7 to 10 years as researched by a molecular biologist Dr Jonas Frisen.
    So the take home lesson is let’s improve the environment in the knee so that cells replicate in a healthier form. This is done through improving alignment by chiropractic manipulation, improved orthotic support to improve gait and foot alignment, reducing weight, rehabilitative exercise and therapies such as shock wave therapy and pulsed electromagnetic waves. New therapies such as Platelet Rich Plasma and Stem Cells, can also give added healing potential for the knee.
