Sample text

How does the dural sleeve, a slack structure - something both Upledger and Ferguson agree upon - transmit a repetitive pull on the sacrum? Recent American evidence supports doubts as to the ability of a core-link mechanism to allow transmission from occiput to sacrum, via the dura, of minute degrees of pull. James Norton, of the Department of Physiology, University of New England College of Osteopathic Medicine, has conducted research into just this question (Norton 1996). Employing a dual examiner protocol in which two examiners, one at the cranium and one at the sacrum, could simultaneously and independently document motion, Norton was able to conclude that there was poor agreement as to lengths of cranial and sacral cycles of movement.

How much a suture resists a bending force depends on the extent to which it is inter digitated, but all bend more than does the cranial bone itself ... compliance not only is a function of lateral movement of adjacent bony plates, but also depends on their rotation at the fulcrum of the suture. (Heisey & Adams 1993) Does palpable mobility at the cranial sutures and articulations exist and, if so, what is the significance of such mobility in health terms? The first part of the question attracts an unequivocal 'Yes' answer.

Upledger & Vredevoogd's arguments against these suggestions are that: 1. there are strong and apparently normal cranial rhythms in many quadriplegic patients 2. denervated muscle and connective tissue produces a rhythmic pulsation of 20-30 cycles per minute. They argue that 'if craniosacral rhythmic motion were dependent upon skeletal muscle tonus, it does not seem possible that the elevated rate in the skeletal muscle could exist in the quadriplegic, without seemingly influencing the cranial rhythm'.
