In the practice of osteopaths, there are constantly patients who come with complaints of depression. In addition to specific problems with the musculoskeletal system, they complain of certain mental illnesses, many take antidepressants at the time of treatment.
And people, as a rule, look for the cause of their depression in things that are familiar and obvious to them, such as problems at work, failures and stressful situations that occur in their lives. And almost no one knows that many mental illnesses, including depression, can be associated with problems of the skull, namely with clamps and limited mobility in the sutures of the skull caused by long-standing head injuries.
How it works?
If a person has problems of the skull, clamps, the bones of the skull are not positioned correctly. Because of this, the vessels that feed the brain are compressed, and the brain does not receive the amount of arterial blood it needs.
Why does he need her?
At a minimum, for normal functioning and the production of hormones responsible for our good mood: oxytocin, endorphin, serotonin and dopamine. All these hormones are produced in the subcortical centers, the medulla oblongata and the frontal lobe. If enough arterial blood does not enter the brain, these areas cease to perform their functions properly, in other words, they do not produce the necessary amount of those very “happiness hormones”.
In this case, a person for no apparent reason can be in a state of stress, depression, feel very depressed. And bad weather has nothing to do with it.
And if you constantly stimulate the production of hormones of joy with sweets, only the second chin will grow, and the amount of hormones will remain the same until the correct blood supply to the brain is restored. This can only be achieved through osteopathic treatment.
The osteopathic doctor restores the correct position of the bones, thus freeing the bones of the skull and the vessels that feed the brain. As a result, the blood supply to the brain is restored, and all its parts function as intended by nature.
The founder of the cranial direction of osteopathy for a long time studied the features of the connection between mental illness and skull problems empirically. He clamped his head with straps and other similar devices. After that, he noted that his mental state changed noticeably: he became unrestrained, angry, nervous.
Moreover, in recent years, a lot of scientific papers have been written and a sufficient number of studies have been conducted confirming the fact that osteopathic treatment reduces and even eliminates the manifestation of neuroses in people.
And not only. There are a number of problems that can be tackled through osteopathic treatment. As I noted above, these are neuroses, as well as unstable moods, outbursts of aggressiveness, increased fatigue, depression, stress, depression.
body + head
Everything in our body is interconnected. It is impossible to consider some of its parts separately and treat them independently of the rest. If we are talking about mental illness and disorders, you cannot work only with your head and get an excellent result. That is why psychotherapy sessions, reading relevant literature and antidepressants do not always help people cope with the problem. Yes, they can give temporary relief, but sooner or later this state will “cover” again – at the first strong stimulus.
In order to get a stable result, an integrated approach is required: it is important to work with both the body and the head. A large amount of preserved information accumulates in the human body. And only the corporal approach helps to release it, which is extremely important when it comes to the treatment of mental illness.
