Cranial osteopathy is a complex subject. It can be dry until things start making sense. Getting a basic understanding is challenging at best.
A good way to start is understanding the principles and familiarizing yourself with the terminology.
Cranial strains are a significant factor for facial growth and development and play a big role in malocclusions. Watch "Cranial Osteopathy as Part of ALF Therapy" if you'd like to learn or review the basics of osteopathy, including some of the terminology. I also share how I use cranial osteopathy for my ALF patients.
Last year's conference changed in the most satisfying way how I practice. I am very excited about this year's topic and hope to see many of you in St. Louis:

More and more parents are looking for minimally invasive, gentle and effective orthodontic treatment for their children. The ALF, as it mimics nature, is the answer to their quest.
Patients are looking for providers …. they are looking for YOU!
Learn how to master this deceptively easy appliance by avoiding the most common mistakes.
