By means of cranial manipulation to rebalance Lee's skull, release of her spastic diaphragm, and providing tooth support by bonding a "shim" of dental resin, her lower back pain totally disappeared.

Five years low back pain resolved in one-half hour

Unfortunately traditional or conventional orthodontics focuses their treatment goals on straightening teeth as well as improving facial form. These goals represent a common denominator of treatment objectives found in all orthodontic approaches. The one factor missing in all the conventional philosophies is establishing a balance between the occlusion or bite and balance of the cranial bones, spine and pelvis. This advancement in technology represents the newer emerging science called Craniodontics. The older treatment concepts were based on the premise that the human skull was immovable, however this belief system has since been dis-proven. By not embracing the new science based information, orthodontic patients are being subjected to structural distortions which are causing chronic headaches, facial pressure and pain, upper cervical and low back pain along with eye strain, balance problems, mental fog, and jaw joint clicking. When queried about the emergence of these various symptoms by the patient, orthodontists quickly tell their patients these type symptoms having nothing to do with what I am doing. This misleading information is designed to absolve the practitioner's responsibilities.

While lecturing in Seoul Korea, I had the opportunity to examine one of the dental assistants who was assisting at the seminar. Lee presented with a dental history of four bicuspid teeth removed and retraction orthodontics. Her medical history's chief complaint was five years of lower back pain. Since nothing had relieved her pain during the past five years, Lee was resolved to live the rest of her life with the pain. My examination revealed cranial distortions that were caused by the retraction of Lee's upper and lower teeth. The abnormal bite and related cranial distortions caused her lower back muscles to continually be in spasm. My treatment focused in on removing the core issues: cranial twisting, spasm of the breathing diaphragm, an upward right cant of her maxillae (upper jaw), reversed motion of the base of her skull and lack of tooth contact on the lower right first molar. By means of cranial manipulation to rebalance Lee's skull, release of her spastic diaphragm, and providing tooth support by bonding a "shim" of dental resin, her lower back pain totally disappeared.

By integrating multiple disciplines, craniopathy, chiropractic, myofascial and body energy work a permanent solution was achieved.
