How to Diagnose Sphenoid Subluxation

Sphenoid bone

While most medical professionals consider the bones of the adult skull to be fused, new ideas and research from some health care providers shows that the cranial bones may expand and contract independently of heart rate up to twelve times a minute.

Sphenoid subluxation is an ailment that causes vision problems, migraines, and eventually, endocrine problems. Some chiropractors and other medical experts believe that the expansion and contraction of the skull may be a part of sphenoid subluxation.

How to Diagnose Sphenoid Subluxation Yourself

Determining if someone has sphenoid subluxation is a matter of running through the symptoms and seeing if they match. Of course, only a medical professional can properly diagnose a medical problem or illness and answer medical questions about OCD, but knowing it's likely before getting an official diagnosis may be important and help ease the worry.

First, determine if the headaches being felt are simply headaches or are migraines. Using a source of light, such as a lamp, candle, or similar, have the sufferer look at the light and if he or she has sensitivity followed by throbbing in the skull, it's likely a migraine.

Next, determine mood swings. Over several weeks, have the subject's mood swings been continual, sometimes sudden, and include increased fatigue, hypochondria, or irritability without other obvious causes?

Then do vision tests. Do one every two or three days for a couple of weeks and compare results. If they are generally consistent, then vision is likely fine, but if they vary and are worse during migraines, then it could be considered a sign of sphenoid subluxation.

If all of these symptoms are present in the person, then it's possible that he or she has sphenoid subluxation.
