Flashcards in Cranial Deck (19):
1

Primary Respiratory Mechanism (PRM)

1. inherent motility of CNS
2. fluctuation of CSF
3. mobility of reciprocal tension membrane (dura)
4. articular mobility of cranial bones
5. mobility of sacrum between the ilia

**lead to cranial rhythmic impulse (CRI) (usually 6-12/min)

2

tinnitus

treat temporals
high pitched=internal rotation
low pitched=external rotation

3

CV-IV (bulb decompression)

-treatment
-stimulate body's inherent therapeutic potency to overcome dysfunction
-treat women past due date
-encourage internal rotation/extension

4

VSD

treat rigid head, sinusitus, allergic rhinitis, migraines, throbbing sensations

5

occipital sinus

falx cerebelli

6

transverse sinus

tentorium cerebelli

7

straight sinus

3 portions of dura meet

8

sagittal sinus

falx cerebri

9

v-spread

-release peripheral sutures
-contre coup

10

temporal rocking

-reduce or increase frequency of CRI
-external rotation brings mastoid processes posterior/medial
-internal rotation brings mastoid processes anterior/lateral

11

parietal lift

headache at vertex
internal rotation-lift-wait for external rotation

12

frontal lift

frontal sinus headache
internal rotation-lift-wait for external rotation

13

flexion/extension

axis: 2 transverse
direction: opposite
name: sphenobasilar angle (flexion small, extension big)

14

torsion

axis: 1 A-P
direction: opposite
name: superior great wing of sphenoid

15

sidebending

axis: 2 vertical
direction: opposite
name: side of convexity

16

rotation

axis: 1 AP
direction: same
name: side that drops inferiorly

17

vertical strain

axis: 2 transverse
direction: same
name: base of sphenoid (inferior/superior)

18

lateral strain

axis: 2 vertical
direction: same
name: base of sphenoid (left/right)

19

compression

axis: 1 AP
direction: into each other
