1

Parietal Lift

place fingertips on both parietal bones just superior to the parietal-squamous sutures
hook the thumbs to create a pivot
inducing internal rotation of the parietal bones cause disengagement
maintain light pressure and traction superiorly until superior give or lateral fullness is noted

2

frontal lift

gently engage lateral inferior edge of frontal bone
apply anterior force with some anterior rotation torque until release is felt

3

5-finger temporal hold

place middle finger gently in the pts external auditory canal
using thumb and index finger, pinch hold on the zygomatic arch
4th and 5th digits pinch hold the mastoid process

4

temporal assessment and rocking

with flexion: external rotation
with extension: internal rotation
simultaneous IR/ER are encouraged until equality of motion

5

temporal assessment and rocking treats

eustachian tube dysfunction
TMJ
bells' palsy
lateral head/suture pain
cranial torsion

6

temporal pull

use a pincer grip on the pinnae or antitragus as close to the temporal bones
apply gentle traction laterally, posteriorly, and superiorly along a vector that parallels the petrous ridge of the temporals
encourage inhalation and take up the slack maintaining tension at the feather's edge of the barrier until release is felt

7

temporal pull treats

balances the tentorium cerebelli
disengages the jugular foramen
may help release thepetrosphenoid
BLT for the occipitomastoid
temporal headache
vertigo
tinnitus
TMJ ISSUE

8

TMJ decompression

begin indirect with compression of mandible towards TMJ until general relaxation
switch to the lateral mandible and gently push inferior and slightly anterior until give

9

TMJ decompression treats

TMJ restriction
mandible restriction
neck pain

10

pressure at parietal eminence produces separation

petrobasilar

11

pressure at lateral vertex produce separation at

petrojugular

12

pressure at the frontal eminence

separation at the occipitomastoid

13

pressure at the pterion

separation at the parietomastoid

14

pressure at the asterion

separation at the pterion

15

pressure at the parietal eminence

separation at the sphenosquamous pivot

16

occipitomastoid release

wrap ipsilateral hand around mastoid process
wrap contralateral hand under occiput with fingers posterior to suture
roll the head towards the affected side until OM suture is most posterior
gently traction the mastoid anteriorly
hold until release

17

sagittal suture release

fingers at inferior portion of parietal bone bilaterally
hold and traction
thumbs cross the sagittal suture at mid point
gap the joint with lateral pressure
hold until release

18

pterigosphenopalatine ganglion

posterior and just lateral to the molars
medial to the pterygoid
direction of force superior, slightly medial, slightly posterior and slight medial rotation
hold gently and await relaxation
