"Just" a Head Bump?

      Bumping your head can be more than just an embarrassment or a temporary discomfort.  It can disturb the cranial rhythms, possibly setting you up for future headaches. 
      The cranial rhythms are subtle movement patterns of the cranial bones. These rhythms aren't synchronized with our pulse or respiration. They are related to the circulation of the cerebrospinal fluid, which bathes our brain and our spinal cord.
     Disturbance of these movement patterns is frequently associated with headaches, and sometimes with vertigo.
     Balancing the cranial rhythms and restoring them to normal is part of every full-body treatment that I do. If you bump your head, or if you suffer from headaches, I will be happy to help.
