Study: Significant Reductions in Pain from Craniosacral Therapy

Albert Stern

The Clinical Journal of Pain is a peer-reviewed publication which investigates all aspects of pain-related research. The mission of the journal is to publish research regarding, "promising new pharmacological, surgical, and other therapeutic modalities," in the treatment of pain. 

It is very exciting to see research regarding craniosacral therapy published here! 

The research is titled, Craniosacral Therapy for the treatment of chronic neck pain: a randomized sham-controlled trial. This paper details a study of 54 patients who were treated with either craniosacral therapy or fake (sham) treatments. The patients received eight treatments once a week. Pain levels were measured before treatment, at the end of treatment and three months later. The results were fantastic. 

-  50% pain relief was reported by 44.4% of the craniosacral patients.  
-  20% pain relief was reported by 74.1% of the craniosacral patients. 
-  There were also "significant differences" regarding movement and quality of life. 

These findings are similar to what I find my clients experience with my craniosacral work. It is great to see this work published and exposed to other healthcare practitioners.
