About NCR
1 | 2 | 3
The job of the neuromuscular system (your brain, nervous system, skeleton and muscles) is to keep your eyes level on the horizon.  If we sustain any type of injury to the head, neck or spine, which create distortions in this optimal shape, the rest of the body will compensate structurally in order to keep the eyes on the horizon - even if this dysfunctional shape causes us physical pain - such as headaches, neck and back pain. Repeated activities, mental and emotional stress, poor posture and other biomechanical stressors can cause the same dysfunctions in your structural system.The most optimal shape to enable our eyes to remain level on the horizon is a round head supported by a straight spine, one that does not curve left or right.

One of the major underpinnings of NCR is the concept that the shape of the head (cranium) directly affects the positioning of the spine and shoulder and pelvic girdles. More specifically, it is the sphenoid bone, a butterfly-shaped bone that sits behind your eyes and nose, that controls and can unlock the rest of your head and musculoskeletal system. There are 28 bones in the skull, and almost all of them touch and form a joint with (are connected to) the sphenoid bone. If we manipulate the sphenoid bone and place it back to an optimal, balanced position, the rest of the bones in the skull become more balanced, then the cervical vertebrae (the bones of the neck), the rest of the spine, the pelvis and even the arches of the feet are more optimally positioned in space. As a result of this higher level of physical functionality, pain is decreased and mobility and even the lifestyle you want is on the way to becoming restored. As a direct benefit of NCR therapy, you will experience relief from headaches, scoliosis, deviated septum, and back, neck and shoulder aches. Dr. Dean Howell's Website
