Release (Dural Tension Techniques)
Release (Dural tension techniques)
The spinal dura is a protective membrane that surrounds the spinal cord. It is made up of two layers, an inner layer and an outer layer, and it helps to protect the delicate tissues of the spinal cord from injury. The inner layer is composed of tough, fibrous connective tissue, while the outer layer is made up of a thin, elastic membrane. The spinal dura is located between the vertebral column and the spinal cord, and it is responsible for preventing the movement of the spinal cord within the vertebral column. It also helps to provide support and stability to the spinal cord, and it helps to maintain the right amount of pressure on the nerves that run through the spinal cord. The spinal dura also helps to regulate the flow of cerebrospinal fluid, which is important for the proper functioning of the nervous system.
Not many people know this but the Dura is a thick layer of tissue that surrounds the brain and spinal cord. The Dura is the outermost layer of the protective tissue of your brain and spinal cord. The Dura exists to contain cerebrospinal fluid that flows through your brain and delivers nutrients. There are many serious conditions involved the Dura, however, dural tension techniques by Chiropractors are designed to remove tension from your spine and allow your body to function properly within its nervous system.
Dural tension techniques are low force and concentrate on the good areas of the Dura to influence the tension areas. The top of your neck where it attaches to the skull, is the first attachment of your Dura. This is the initial focus of our correction techniques, so we that we know that the attachment that is closest to the brain is reduced in tension first before continuing to treat the rest of the body.
Your sacrum, which is at the base of your lower back, is generally the second most important area to reduce tension in order to relieve pressure associated with the dura. Stretching techniques that concentrate on the back, your head and the lower back are also a great way to stretch out your dura without the need for a Chiropractor to assess you.
A typical patient that respond well to dural techniques include people who are highly stressed or anxious, those who have not responded well to traditional Chiropractic techniques or people who are very in tune with their own body. If this sounds like you and you were looking for an alternative treatment therapy that is light, then we recommend you speak to one of our staff and organise a time to see one of our Chiropractors. The techniques we use are Network technique and Torque Release Technique. They’re both designed to target the dura that’s around your spinal cord and reduce tension throughout the spine, allowing your nervous system to work properly and your body to heal itself .

2. It is composed of two layers, the inner layer and the outer layer, which are fused together to form a protective sheath.
3. The inner layer is composed of connective tissue and the outer layer is composed of dense, fibrous connective tissue.
4. The spinal dura is responsible for providing a protective barrier between the spinal cord and other structures in the spine.
5. The spinal dura also helps to maintain spinal fluid pressure and keep the spinal cord and its nerve roots in place.
6. The spinal dura is innervated by sensory nerves and is capable of responding to changes in pressure.
7. The spinal dura can be damaged by trauma, infection, inflammation, or disease.
8. Damage to the spinal dura can cause pain, numbness, and other neurological symptoms.
9. Surgery or medications may be needed to treat damage to the spinal dura.
