How CranioSacral Therapy Can Help

Extensive research at the Upledger Institute has found that many people with concussions - recent or old - have found healing through craniosacral therapy (CST).

The brain and spinal cord have a thick, protective layer of connective tissue that help nourish, bring buoyancy to, and pad the brain. After a concussion, this protective skin around the brain and spinal cord can slowly tighten, explaining why symptoms may not show up until even years after an injury.

Craniosacral therapy uses a light-touch therapy to address the deepest layers of our body and let go of the internal lesions that can restrict healthy function in our nervous system.

If you think you may have post-concussion syndrome, we encourage you to let your doctor know about your symptoms in conjunction with your treatment in order to ensure no complication with more serious diagnoses.
