Dr Shepherd Featured in Plexus MagazineCranial adjusting has been around for quite some time. It’s involved in many different chiropractic techniques. We’ve seen great success in using cranial adjusting for concerns such as

  • Balance disturbances
  • Headaches
  • Instability in the neck
  • Jaw problems
  • Sinus problems
  • Vertigo and dizziness
  • Whiplash

Dr. Shepherd was recently featured in Plexus Magazine, a publication by the Washington State Chiropractic Association. He authored an article entitled Cranial Adjusting in the Chiropractic Clinical Setting, which tells all about how cranial adjusting works.

Our Amazing Bodies

Your skull isn’t made up of one piece. It involves several different plates, all linked together by small sutures. There is some movement to them, and they can get misaligned in different directions. These misalignments create stress on the central nervous system. The result can be many problems, some of which are listed above.

The Gentle Activator®

When we perform cranial adjusting, we do so with the low-force, noninvasive Activator. Thanks to our years of experience, we know when to adjust and when it’s not appropriate to do so. With the Activator, we can safely perform the cranial adjustment you need. If we don’t think that it’s right for you, we’ll inform you immediately and refer you to the appropriate practitioner for your case.

    Dear Dr. Shepherd, Great article! I'd like to share this cranial adjusting testimonial with your readers: about eight years ago I banged my head on a beam and suffered a severe concussion. Although the symptoms improved with time, six months later I was still struggling with lingering effects. The symptoms improved dramatically following cranial adjustments from Dr. Shepherd. Within a few weeks I was back to normal. A big THANK YOU to Dr. Ed!!! Gary R. McLeod, DC
