Cranial Sutures: Morphology Analysis & Manipulative Strategies by Marc Pick, DICS, FICS

While there is considerable diversity in the forms and styles 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. 

In this ground-breaking work, the author describes the structure and motion of the sutures in much greater detail than ever before, showing with extensive photographic evidence how the bones of the cranium actually move, and how the practitioner can optimally affect that movement. Based on many years of experience in both the clinic and anatomy lab, Dr. Pick’s analysis is supported by over 300 photographs and illustrations. 

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 lessons from this book, which is likely to become the standard reference on cranial sutures for many years to come.  

“The purpose of this text is to serve as a guide in developing the practitioner’s palpatory skills and to impart a deeper understanding of how the sutures articulate morphologically.”
