Cranial Sacral Respiratory Mechanism

The cranial sacral mechanism is a combination of integrated functions that support, nourish and enhance the performance of the nervous system as it controls bodily functions.

The components of the cranial sacral respiratory mechanism are: Respiratory motion of the sutural system of the cranium along with cranial bone flexibility.

Respiratory motion of the sacrum between the two ilia. Tension of the dural membranes from its contact with the sutural system, the cranium, the upper cervical spine and the sacral base. The inherent quality of the cerebral spinal fluid to pulsate and flow through the dural membrane system. The growth and inherent respiration of the brain and ventricular system. All other systems of the body have both a direct and indirect relationship to the cranial sacral respiratory mechanism (endocrine, cardiovascular, respiratory, etc.).

In SOT® Methods, structural analysis is based on objective clinical findings (indicators). These methods are based on normal physiology and how the physiology should react under certain conditions, i.e., Arm Fossae test is a challenge of multiple stimuli calling on the upper motor neurons system to coordinate function with the lower motor neuron system. Once these indicators are collected, the SOT® Methods Chiropractor makes judgments as to the best treatment approach. One of three categories is chosen, based on the needs of either the cranial sacral mechanism, or the weight-bearing properties of the sacroiliac joint or the lumbar spine.
