Craniopathy is the study of the skull and the restoration of proper function. Eighty percent of the central nervous system (CNS) is encased in the cranium while only 20% is in the spine. The skull itself is intended to be a pumping mechanism for the cerebral spinal fluid (CSF), which provides nutrients and removes metabolic waste to and from all areas of the brain. Some people ask if it is similar to craniosacral therapy. Craniopathy is different than craniosacral therapy. Although craniopaths do work with the dural system (protective layer surrounding the spinal cord and brain) we don’t stop there. Craniopathy is a much more in depth study with a strong focus on all the individual bones of the skull, how they move with respiration, the anatomy and neurology of the brain, flow of the CSF, the route and function of the cranial nerves, the tension membranes in the cranium and how they can produce various types of pain. Chiropractic Craniopathy is helpful in TMJ pain, headaches, vertigo, low back pain treatment, Facial Pain treatment and many more.

"Dr Chris healed the vertigo
that I was experiencing last year after just a few visits. They are so accommodating, attentive and caring... and they took care of the vertigo problems I was having in just a few days. I highly recommend them!"

"Dr. Mai is an excellent chiropractor!
She's corrected my back issues and has taken the time to teach me why the problems occurred in the first place. I highly recommend her and the other professionals at pure health services!"

"I sprained my ankle earlier this week
and am so glad I decided to see Dr. Mai instead of going elsewhere. She very thoroughly assessed the pain and its source to treat my strained muscles but also my low back. I went home feeling so much better than I thought possible and hopeful for a full recovery that would be quicker than I had been willing to hope for. I know if I had chosen otherwise it would have been pain killers and less mobility."
