Kyphosis (Hunchback) and Other Back Problems Can Be Helped With NeuroCranial
Back problems are the result of the postural pattern of the body leading
to excessive stress for the muscles and the nerves, creating pain. Kyphosis,
lordosis and scoliosis are postural patterns of the spine. There is no
medical treatment for postural problems until they are so severe that
surgery can be used.
Consider a whiplash injury. It is caused by a whip-like action of the
head and neck, moving the center of the head forward (anteriorly) on the
neck. This makes the head balance differently. The body's solution to
the dilemma of holding the head up in a stable pattern is to change the
curve of the neck into a straighter or even a reverse curve pattern. No
wonder that local treatment of the neck does not help much!
Similarly, a kyphotic, scoliotic or lordotic spine is created from the
stabilization pattern of the head. Local treatment of these spinal patterns
is without merit. This is why there is generally no treatment for postural
problems beyond telling someone to stand up straight. When the bones of
the head are misaligned, the only postural patterns that the nervous system
can find to support the head in a stable pattern result in kyphosis, lordosis,
scoliosis or the whiplash pattern (a very straight spine).
Only NCR® can routinely expect to make changes in kyphosis, lordosis
and scoliosis. This is because the reasons for these postures are not
conditions in the spine but instead problems in the position of bones
in the skull. It sounds funny to say that scoliosis begins in the face,
but it's true!
