Stem Cells in the Cranial Sutures and More: In Support of Cranial Osteopathy

By | Osteopathy, Physical Health | No Comments

Two Opposing Models? The medical profession has historically operated with the model that health can be achieved solely as a series of biochemical reactions. “Better living through chemistry” is a common quote that can be found in relation to this. Historically, osteopathic physicians (D.O.’s) have been attacked and dismissed for practicing “manual medicine.” D.O.’s argued that they operate on a different aspect of health by optimizing the structure. Critics have complained that there is “no evidence” for this model. Science is showing more and more the plausibility of this in other fields besides osteopathy. The goal with this article is…

5 Doctors Told Said There Was No Hope For Her Unborn Child

By | Osteopathy, Physical Health | No Comments

It’s not every day I post a review a patient left for another osteopathic physician. This story, however, is beyond worthy of sharing because many of us need to be reminded about the potential power of what osteopathy can accomplish. Stephen Myles Davidson, DO is my mentor and colleague. His osteopathic treatments are at another level than anyone else I have met. I heard about it many months ago while talking to him, but now the patient has also shared her story. So often, I read about so many osteopaths and other organizations from around the world who spend their…

Solving a Peculiar Case of Pelvic Pain

By | Health, Medicine, Osteopathy, Physical Health | No Comments

Pelvic pain is not always what it seems. I recently saw a woman in her early 30’s who had been having pain over her pubic bone region for over a year. The pubic bones are the part of the hip that meet in the front. Her pain started when she was in the third trimester of her pregnancy with her first and only child. Unfortunately over a year later, her pain had not gone away still. She had tried going to a chiropractor and physical therapist prior to seeing me. She said that although the chiropractic treatment had helped, she…

Evidence the Bones of the Head Move???

By | Osteopathy, Physical Health | No Comments

In his book, Doctoring Data, Malcolm Kendrick, M.D. describes the “white swan hypothesis.” He states that if one’s hypothesis is that “all swans are white,” then as long as that person observes only white swans, he or she strengthens their position and they are correct. However, as soon as that person observes a black swan, he or she must completely reject their original hypothesis and form a new one, or flat out ignore the findings. It’s like saying Bigfoot, Lochness monster, etcetera do not exist. If ever, a Bigfoot was captured, all of us who hypothesized Bigfoot did not exist…

How Swallowing Incorrectly Can Affect Your Eyes

By | Osteopathy | 4 Comments

The bones that make up the hard palate also make up the orbit, the eye socket. The maxillary and palatine bones make up the hard palate and also form the floor of the orbit. With an interest in treating the jaw and eyes, I have recently had a curiosity in understanding how tongue thrusting (AKA- reverse or immature swallow) reshapes the hard palate over time and could ultimately affect the eyes. Recently listening to a lecture by Dr. Holly Baller at NEO Smiles (www.neo-smiles.com), she was pointing out a case study about a child who after palate expansion had improvement…

3 Reasons Osteopathic Treatment Is Different

By | Osteopathy | No Comments

If one were to ask people on the street what osteopathic treatment was, they might get a lot of blank looks or incorrect responses. Osteopathy has been around since the 1800’s, yet many people don’t know it exists or what it is actually about. Many other manual therapy professions use concepts and techniques that originated within the osteopathic profession. Even when others use techniques originating in the osteopathic profession, they may not get the same results. There is more to osteopathy than just the techniques. Here’s three reasons that make osteopathic treatment different: Thorough Osteopathic physicians have very extensive training…
