1-1/2 Years Post-Whiplash Pain Resolved

Ron Goldberg was in a car accident in 2008. For 18 months he suffered pain down the left side of his body plus distortion of vision. Ron tried many different forms of therapy including acupuncture, chiropractic and physical therapy — all of which did not address the underlying cause. Ron's cranial motion was traumatized which resulted in an asynchronous motion of his skull bones. Tightening of the dural membrane tensioned the spinal nerves down the entire length of his spine. Applied therapies failed to resolve this causative tension and his pain persisted. Treatment involved cranial manipulation which resynchronized his skull motion back to factory default. Immediately following correction, Ron's 18 months of pain totally disappeared; additionally, his vision improved by 60 percent.

Post-Whiplash Pain

Someone once stated that a genius is someone who recognizes the obvious. Through my 42 plus years of post-graduate training, I have had the good fortune of studying with a handful of geniuses who taught me basic concepts of how the human body really functions. Dr. Smith's contribution was integrating these various concepts into a comprehensive treatment approach.

Every structure must have a stable foundation. The human body is no different. One key area that is overlooked by 99.9% of practitioners is the functional motion of the human skull. There is a natural rhythm which governs its motion. A traumatic accident such as a whiplash injury often disrupts this rhythm. When this occurs, tension is dramatically increased along the entire dural membrane system that extends from around the brain, through the base of the skull, attaches to the upper three cervical vertebrae and then travels down to its final attachment at the sacrum. This is why it is referred to as the cranial sacral system. When the neck muscles get injured from micro trauma from a motor vehicle or similar incident, the dural membrane tension directly affects the entire nervous system. Often patients exhibit pain patterns down one half of the body which does not respond to conventional therapies. The reason is simple. The underlying reason is not being corrected. The following two video case testimonials reinforce this basic concept.
