Osteopath’s opinion on treating autism
Autism is a disease resulted from cerebral blood circulation disorder that results in arrested development or progressive brain degradation. It is characterized by the deficit of social interaction and decrease of communication, as well as limited interests and sometimes repeated movements if the disease is a result of schizophrenia.
The core of the disease is hidden in the so-called mirror neurons or in the nutrition disorder due to lack of oxygen in central parts of the brain. These cells are responsible for the ability to perceive and feel happiness, imagine our future, the ability to empathize, understand other people’s motivation. Mirror neurons are located in various parts of human brain, while their functions are very complicated. Owing to these cells we are able, for example, to react to other person’s pain or to imitate others.
Blood circulation disorder in central parts of human brain first affects cerebellum, its electric potential dramatically increases. Hypothalamus and hypophysis are affected next.
Cerebellum is responsible for complicated muscular movements. For this reason the face of a child suffering from autism becomes less active (mobile), its features become more harsh and stiff.
If you discover autism indications in your child it is necessary to:
- Detect and treat the neurologic pathology in proper time, because prevalence of birth pathology and the hypertensive-hydrocephalus syndrome is very high (up to 70% of children suffer from evident or hidden forms of hydrocephalus)
- At a medical examination some of the patients with different forms of autism turn out to suffer from central nervous system (CNS) disorders. For some kids these disorders are only a background for autism development, for others they are the essential reason of autism. When it comes to treating a neurologic pathology the child will definitely feel better in any case: the excitability will decrease, he or she will be less subject to fears, headaches with elements of autoagressions will stop.
- Whatever the causes of uneven brain development are, it is necessary to stimulate frontal lobes and verbal zones responsible for addressed speech comprehension and the ability to independently build phrases and sentences.
In order for the treatment to be successful it is necessary to find out the causes of autism in each case. Most of the time autism comes with a sleep disorder. This is why normalization of sleep without taking any chemical sleeping medicines is the first step towards recovery.
Children diagnosed with autism have immune disorders. It is important to study them because a healthy immune system is essential for recovery. In autism treatment an important role is given to active cerebral blood circulation and oxygen delivery to the brain of a child. Any disorders must be eliminated and brain functions should be activated.
Osteopath’s opinion on autism causes and treatment:
Osteopathy doesn’t involve any surgical instruments, pills or equipment, an osteopath uses only his hands. Osteopathic methods are absolutely harmless while the effectiveness of such treatment in numerous cases is many times higher than the effectiveness of traditional medicine methods. Nowadays osteopathy as a medical treatment method is approved in Russia by its Public Health Ministry. In the West osteopathy has undergone a period of prohibition and a certain period of no compensation from insurance medicine, in France osteopathy is at the verge of official approval.
The main instrument of both osteopathy’s diagnostics and treatment are sensitive hands of an osteopath.
Osteopathy is applied at diagnostics and treatment of numerous diseases, while it doesn’t have any contra-indications. The most significant effect has been achieved at child treatment because their organs are at the stage of development and growth. Huge success osteopathy has achieved in treating newborns: childbirth traumas, child cerebral palsy, hyper excitability, spit up, vomiting etc. Many diseases can be diagnosed easily and can be cured without any problems at the earliest stages of life (sometimes during the first hours of life).
Curing autism with osteopathy: an osteopath works with sacrum and skull, normalizing cerebral liquor movement in the head. When difficulties of cerebral liquor outflow occurs blood pressure increases, nourishment becomes low, stagnations and waste products take place. In case of insufficient inflow blood pressure decreases which also has a negative effect on brain functioning. Normalizing cerebral liquid pressure eliminates attention insufficiency, hyper activity, tiredness, fatigability, dizziness, headaches, etc.
Osteopathy is most effective when autism has an organic nature that is when the cause of autism is an organic brain lesion, as a result of which atrophy of some brain parts takes place. The physics of this process is rather simple: the organism in order to eliminate toxins pumps more cerebral liquid to the skull, it doesn’t outflow properly that leads to intracranial blood pressure increase. An osteopath lowers the intracranial blood pressure and improves the liquid outflow.
Osteopathy is one of the most powerful instruments for child brain structure development. It heals not only organic damages but also allows developing functionally disordered skills.
As a result of osteopath’s work brain metabolism improves, child’s brain acquires the ability to restore damaged areas. Thus, the child has an ability to develop everyday skills, emotional contact skills and social adaptation. This allows with certain success to study in pre-schools and schools, not depriving the child of communication with people and allows developing social contacts, bringing the child back to reality.
Osteopathic examination should be given to ALL newborns and in case of the smallest childbirth damages the treatment should be started as soon as possible!
Osteopathy earned an excellent reputation in treating such diseases as arrested psychomotor development, autism, syndrome of hyper activity and lack of attention, high intracranial blood pressure, tics and other neurosis-like conditions, enuresis, eyesight disorders (astigmatism), squints, spastic torticollis, faults in posture, scoliosis, bite disorders headaches, bad appetite, etc. I would also like to point out that osteopathy is a great means to improve the quality of life of a child diagnosed with cerebral palsy.
Statistics shows that 98% of children that received osteopathic treatment prove to have a significant emotional condition improvement, better sleep, decreased anxiety, sucking normalization, the recovery of functions of cranial-brain nerves and balance of vegetative [involuntary] nervous system. Muscle imbalance is reduced, range of motion is increased, pathological reflexes disappear, rectifying reactions and prehensile functions are improved and restored.
Case monitoring of children of children that received osteopathic treatment proves a stable therapeutic effect. About 30% of these children leaves their peers behind when it comes to motor and psycho-verbal development. They do not have considerable posture faults, somatic disorders, these children tend to have stronger health and are less likely to catch a cold.
Osteopathic correction of newborns applied during the first years of a child’s life is proved to be a successful method of treatment both preventive and therapeutic in treating childbirth pathologies of central nervous system. Osteopathic treatment has proved its significance, urgency and necessity in complex medical rehabilitation.
Improvement in treating autism directly depends on eliminating vertebral / spinal column (spine) pathologies and, as a result, restoring brain blood circulation and oxygen saturation of the brain.
