If you answered yes to ANY of these questions, then there are some things that you should know. Your brain is free-floating inside your skull. As you move, your brain is sloshing around. During an impact, the brain can be pushed against the inside of the skull and can be bruised. It can be injured first on the side of impact and then on the opposite side. Further, the bones of your skull should move slightly as you breathe in and out. If you answered yes to any of the above questions, it’s possible that one or more of those bones are not moving as it should. This can cause imbalances in the Autonomic Nervous System. It is widely accepted that imbalances of the Parasympathetic and Sympathetic Nervous Systems are directly linked to a wide variety of pain and disease processes. Head traumas increase Stress, which lead to changes in brain size, changes in muscle tone, increases in blood pressure, increases in heart load, changes in endocrine levels, decreases in immune response, changes in cognitive responses and more.
