1

ways to increase the amplitude of the CRI to make it easier to feel

ask the pt to inhale and exhale fully

2

ways to distinguish the rhythmic sensations that occur in the CRI

ask the pt to stop breathing

3

flexion finger motions

fingers spread apart and move away from you

4

extension finger motions

fingers approximate and move towards you

5

superior vertical strain finger motions

1st fingers move inferiorly, pnky fingers move superiorly

6

inferior vertical strain finger motions

1st fingers move superiorly, pnky fingers move inferiorly

7

SBS right lateral strain finger motions

index finger pads move to the left and pinky fingers move to the right

8

SBS Left lateral strain finger motions

index finger pads move to the right and pinky finger pads to the left

9

Right SBS torsion finger motions

finger pads of right hand move superiourly and the left finger pads move inferiorly

10

left SBS torsion finger motions

finger pads of left hand move superiorly and the right finger pads move inferiorly

11

right sidebending rotation finger motions

fullness on the right
right index and pinky move away, whilst left fingers approximate

12

left sidebending rotation finger motions

fullness on the left
left index and pinky move away, while right fingers approximate

13

occipital condylar decompression

contact as near to the foramen and condyles as possible
add slight OA flexion
gently apply traction, then pull the occipital tissues in a posterior and lateral direction
await slight occipital regional give
*in infants can use a v spread

14

occipital condylar decompression can treat

poor infant feeding
infant colic
head and neck pain
post trauma to head and neck

15

CV 4 Compression

Still point induction
thenar eminences are inferior to the superior nuchal line and medial to the pats OM sutures
gently encourage extension by leaning back
gently resist its inferior motion by not reducing pressure
motion will diminish
slowly release pressure and await CRI return

16

still point

point at which motion disappears and the tissue settles

17

CV 4 Compression treats

decreased CRI
URI
headache/migraine

18

SBS decompression indirect

BMT compression followed by release

19

SBS decompression direct

Gently engage the temporal bones to distract against the occiput
pull in an anterior and slightly superior direction

20

SBS decompression treats

diminished CRI
mood disorders cranial n. entrapment
URI
pediatric developmental problems

21

Balanced membranous tension

indirect
gently exaggerate membranous asymmetry until a sense of balance is noted
resist a return to CRI neutral until CRI stops at a still point
gently release forces and return to midpoint

22

BMT treats

asymmetrical or diminished CRI
cranial n. entrapment
sx related to dural strain or venous sinuses
headaches

23

Direct cranial motion impulse correction

identify asymmetry of cranial motion
at the CRI midpoint of motion, apply a gentle and brief force in a corrective direction
repeat once or twice
