Dystonia Can Be Helped By NeuroCranial Restructuring

Dystonia Can Be Helped By NeuroCranial Restructuring

Dystonia is a condition affecting the brain stem part of the brain found low in the back of the head. Symptoms include blepharospasm, uncontrollable closing of the eyes, chronic and uncontrollable closure of the mouth, spasms of the muscles of the anterior throat, muscle tension headaches and uncontrollable writhing movements of the head/neck.

There is no medical cure or even understanding of where the condition comes from. Medical therapy revolves around two treatments: 1) injections of botulism toxin to temporarily alleviate the annoyingly recurrent, uncontrollable muscle spasms and 2) prescriptions of tranquilizers and sedatives to calm these anxious, upset people.

I have worked with only five persons with dystonia and with only one for more than three treatment sequences. She is almost symptom free and has resumed her normal life. She no longer lives the life of a recluse, shunned by her family because of the stigma of a disease that distorts the person’s appearance.

It has taken thirty-six treatments (nine treatment clusters) to get her this far. The other patients have had varying degrees of success. I believe that further treatment would give them lasting results. One lady who suffers from blepharospasm has short-term cessation of her symptoms. I think it would last longer with more treatment. I hope to work with more cases of dystonia.
