 Cranial Sutures: Analysis

While there is considerable diversity in the forms and style of cranial manipulation, all would agree that a thorough understanding of the sutures of the cranium and face is essential. Yet until now, no one has given these important structures the attention they deserve. This ground-breaking work, describes the structure and motion of the sutures in greater detail than ever before, with extensive photographic evidence showing how the bones of the cranium actually move, and how the practitioner can optimally affect that movement. Systematically examining each of the sutures, including those of the face, vault, and base, Dr. Pick brings clarity and precision to these descriptions. Everyone who touches the head with a therapeutic intent will learn many valuable and clinically useful lessons from this book. Based on many years experience in both the clinic and anatomy lab, Dr. Pick’s analysis is supported by over 300 photographs and illustrations. This is likely to become the standard reference on the cranial sutures for many years to come and is an essential book for all practitioners of cranial manipulation.
