What is the role of my cranium during head/neck rotation movements? Is my cranium biased?





🧐 Q1. Is turning your head/neck one way more difficult than the other? (Left or Right)

🧐 Q2. Look yourself in a mirror. Which one of your eyes seems deeper to you? (Left or Right)


🥰 For example, if your head/neck rotation was more difficult to the left and the right eye seemed to be deeper than the left, then there is a chance that your cranium might be biased to the right (right intracranial torsion).


👏 It is perfectly normal to have some level of asymmetry in each of our body regions. Nobody is perfectly symmetrical. It is usually not a problem until our body can no longer cope with it due to aging, poor posture or habits, strenuous work tasks, and any other forms of trauma to the body.


I may have right intracranial torsion but it doesn't mean that I need to worry about it unless I can't turn my head to the left as much as I want. If indicated, however, I might want to consider getting professional help to: 1) confirm whether the cranium is indeed the driver for my head/neck rotation task and 2) restore the cranium and head/neck rotation motor control.


The next few videos will be about basic cranial mobilization exercises, assuming that the cranium is the driver and an individual have right intracranial torsion (i.e., can't turn the head/neck to the left).
