These days, patients both expect and desire to be proactive in their care. "What can I do at home for myself?" is a common question in clinics of all disciplines, particularly in the economic environment. Fluid movement—undulation—allows for a high level of patient participation without requiring additional specialized spaces or equipment—and leads to improved compliance and overall clinical outcomes. Kimberly Kohr, DC, a chiropractor and exercise instructor, and Anita Boser, LMP, CHP, author of Relieve Stiffness and Feel Young Again With Undulation, explain how.
Chiropractors are finding that one simple technique can have a major impact on their patients' well-being and overall bodily health. The Cranial Release Technique takes only about a minute, gently stretching muscles at the base of the skull to realign bones in the head. Patients have reported benefits to a wide range of bodily conditions, from improvements in joint paint and headaches to allergies and even digestive problems.
