Endonasal Cranial Adjusting with a Balloon
Endonasal Cranial Adjusting has been done with a balloon since the 1940's. However cranial adjusting itself dates back to the time of Hippocrates. What the pioneers knew science has just proven. That your skull is not one solid bone. It is made up of 22 bones that fit together like pieces in a jigsaw puzzle. These bones or plates move at the joints or sutures and they can misalign or become fixated. Due to outside forces such as a fall, getting stuck in the birth canal, dental or orthodontic work, dehydration with poor postural habits or emotional trauma, the skull bones can lose their intended shape. Fortunately, Endonasal Cranial Adjusting can free up your skull bones. The technique used by Dr. Fields is a cumulative adjusting process which allows your brain the room it needs and your nasal passages the opening they need. As a result, brain function and airflow are optimized with Endonasal Cranial Adjusting.
You will first be interviewed to see if you are a likely candidate. A thorough history of your heath status will be taken. Your exam will consist of a neurological, muscular, adhesion, cranial suture and nasal evaluation to determine your individual misalignment pattern.
You will receive specialized muscle work and the Endonasal Cranial Adjustments. Adjustments are done with an endonasal balloon which is inserted into one or a combination of your six nasal passages (yes, you have six passages, or meatus). The balloon's size and depth is all determined by your specific misalignment pattern.
On certain occasions, you may receive soft tissue work inside your mouth. There may be pressure point work on the pterygoid muscles, cranial adjusting on the roof of your mouth, the Modified Muncie Technique for Eustachian tube dysfunction or other modalities to support your healing.
