An Extract of a Report About NeuroCranial Restructuring to an Attorney

The following text and photos are from a report to an attorney. by Dean Howell, ND

Descriptions of Photographs: The dated photographs you see in the eight-photograph sequence are from my office records. There are six pictures taken before the accident, and the last two are seven and nine months after the accident. The difference in the photos from before and after the accident are notable for the change in format, with the earlier pictures taken with a thirty-five millimeter camera and the later pictures taken with a digital camera. Mr. Rogers is freely standing in all of these portrait pictures. The changes in the relative position of his head are because of changes in his postural pattern. I took each portrait picture on the day in question. Mr. Rogers’ pictures are sized so that his faces in each of the pictures remain approximately the same size. A photo anomaly that made the background appear blue has been removed from the last two portrait pictures. No retouching of the faces have occurred. I apologize for the darkness of the last two photographs (the digital camera has had its problems), but their use was very necessary. They are of great value for this report. The picture sequence has lines drawn to make observation of the symmetry of each photo and the differences between the photographs easier to see. I drew lines across the bottom of the ears, through each corner of the eyes, and through the corners of the mouth. Observations: Please note the gradual changes in the photo sequence. These show the effects of the naturopathic manipulations Mr. Rogers received from me. In the first photograph (taken during his incoming examination),

Mr. Rogers holds his head stiffly erect, tilted slightly forward, with low cheekbones and a crooked nose. By the March 7 photograph, Mr. Rogers already displays a straighter nose, higher cheekbones and a more oval face as well as a more comfortable head position. One of his presenting complaints, sleep apnea, was almost corrected. He had improvement in spinal mobility and a decrease in pain. As the sequence progresses, the gradual changes in facial characteristics and improved head postural position is evident.

Similarly, he reported continuing improvements in many facets of his physical actions as well. His chronic neck and back tightness gradually decreased.

He was able to stand and extend his arms upward and bend his head backward. He told many people that he had never been able to do this at any time before that.

In the final picture taken before the auto accident, Mr. Rogers looks calm, peaceful and relaxed with a comfortable head position, high cheekbones, markedly different from his appearance on March 4. Please look again at the same photo sequence, this time noting the lines. The general progression of the photos shows the lines becoming parallel with one another and with the ground as Mr. Rogers’ facial symmetry improves. Soon after the December 15 photograph, Mr. Rogers was in the motor vehicle accident in question. He did not return for treatment until the July treatment sequence. At that time, he had very little improvement of the symptoms that he reported soon after the accident: dizziness, neck and shoulder pain and numbness in his hands and arms. Even after four treatments (at the time of the photograph), the severe extension of his head is evident, with only some improvement by the September photograph. Note the slight tilt of the line drawn through the bottom of the ears in the July 14, 1997 photograph. When the ears are found at a tilt like this, the patient will often report dizziness, balance problems or clumsiness. In the September 19, 1997 photograph, the line is nearly horizontal, and Mr. Rogers reported that his balance was much improved.
