Cranial osteopathy can be particularly useful in treating the pain of headache, migraine, sinusitis and facial pain. It is extremely gentle, and so can be the technique of choice for those patients whose symptoms may be too acute for conventional osteopathic manipulative treatment, for example in the case of a recent acute back sprain with severe muscle spasm. It can also be an effective method of unravelling the long standing, chronic pain of misalignment, perhaps harking back to an old unresolved trauma such as a whiplash accident.


Cranial osteopathy is renowned as the primary method to treat the pain and distress of infantile colic, and also has its place in the treatment of torticollis, glue ear and many other paediatric complaints.
