Just sent out the Myoskeletal newsletter with an intriguing topic that is getting a lot of response… “The 42 Pound Head”. That surprised me, because it is something we have taught for many years. It is old hat to me, but a new notion to many bodyworkers who are surprised that so many of their clients present with degenerative disk disease, head pain and TMJ.

There are only a few places where the nervous system can be properly tuned, and these “adjusting knobs” are the bones that directly attach to the dura mater. Faulty alignment or fixations in any bone of the cranial vault or spine will over stretch, torsion, deform or drag on the dural membrane, disrupting its ability to send or receive reliable signals from musculoskeletal and visceral structures. These aberrant dural stresses frequently manifest as spasm and pain, and are often misinterpreted as muscle problems. Therapists greatly benefit from the ability to quickly distinguish between common myofascial pain syndromes and true adverse dural tension signs.   View complete article   http://erikdalton.com/NewslettersOnline
