Dr. Johnstone Participates in Cranial Nerve Manipulation Training

Dr. Grace Johnstone of Hardwick Chiropractic recently completed a four-day advanced training in cranial nerve manipulation. Led by Dr. Alain Crobier, osteopath and co-founder of the Barral Institute, the training focused on treating the cranial nerves, meningeal system (the protective covering of the brain), and brain.

The cranial nerves and spinal cord connect the brain to the rest of the body. They give us our sense of smell, taste, hearing, vision, and effect how our internal organs function. Many of life’s stressors, including trauma, chemical sensitivities, connective tissues adhesions, medications, and blows to the head can alter the function of the cranial nerves. People suffering from tinnitus, balance problems, asthma, Bell’s Palsy, and migraines may benefit from this work. Due to the direct relationship between the cranial nerves and the organs, problems such as acid reflux, esophageal spasm, gall bladder problems, and irritable bowel syndrome can also be helped.

According to Dr. Johnstone, “This work fits beautifully with the approach we use at our office, and it allows us to apply new techniques to help people recover from what can be very challenging conditions.”
