Craniosacral Therapy for head injuries

craniosacral therapy for head injuriesAfter several successful experiences treating head injuries with craniosacral work, I’m wanting to help more people in this way. I started looking into head injuries among high school football players and this article by the Huffington Post is very worrisome. Research and postmortem brain biopsies of high school football players showed 3 out of 10 had signs of chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE). The disease, caused by head trauma such as concussion, leads to dementia, memory loss, suicidal thoughts, and personality and mood changes, among other progressive symptoms.The rates were higher as they advanced into college or pro level football. This is terrible and my heart just aches for these young people and their families! But I also learned that CST has been studied and looks like it helps. A 2017 study published by the Journal of Medical Acupuncture about CST and Concussion  showed craniosacral therapy to be clinically beneficial for post concussive syndrome. What if football players got treated with CST after every head injury?
