What are the unpaired cranial base bones?

Sphenoid

Occiput

2

What are the unpaired facial bones?

Ethmoid

Mandible

Vomer

Frontal?? Depends on whether or not you believe in the power of craniosteopathy

3

What should you inspect for the Cranial/Head TART screen?

Face - Forehead, supranasal vertical folds, orbits, nose/nasolabial crease, mouth

Top of head

Sides of head

Back of head

Is it asymmetrical, tightness on one side? Tender on one side?

4

Occipitomastoid

Asterion

Lambdoidal

Lambda

Saggital

Bregma

Coronal

Pterion

Parietosquamous

Suboccipitals

Occipitalis

Temporalis

Masseters

Frontalis

6

What kind of lymphadenopathy are you looking for in cranial TART?

Suboccipital

A&P chains

Supraclavicular

7

What is the RRADS of Cranial Rhythmic Impuse (CRI)?

Rate 10-12 is normal

Rhythm - steady/irregular

Amplitude - Small vs large motion

Direction - Equal throughout or asymmetrical

Strength - force of motion

10-12

9

Vault Contact

10

Frontal Occipital Contact

11

Becker Contact

Becker contact is comfortable, like holding a Baby

Steps in Cranial Balanced Membranous Tension

16

What is the still point?

The point in Balanced Membranous Tension when CRI is no longer palpable in neutral position

Gone when CRI returns

Like the eye of the hurricane
