Critical Thinking

One Tool I’ve Added to My Toolbox (I just cringe hearing myself saying this…)

As physical therapists, we have an arsenal of “tools” to utilize with our patients.   While I am not a huge fan of promoting “tools” (and suspect our outcomes are dependent on much more than that), I want to highlight a product that I have been using recently: the craniocradle.

I first learned about this nifty device at AAOMPT when they were one of the adjacent exhibitors to our booth.  Here is a video of Dr. Francois Prizinski showing it off (w/ me behind the camera).

Plain and simple: The craniocradle assists the modern manual therapist in gentle handling of their patients.  I suspect it simply provides the necessary interoceptive input necessary to chill out a sensitive nervous system and help your patients relax (its quite comfortable).

So, I’ve recently contacted the folks at craniocradle and they have agreed to give 10% to anyone who purchases the device and uses the promo code “NxtGen” at checkout.  Every PT clinic should have one of these.

I give this product 4.5 out of 5 stars (due to affordability, simplicity, comfort and versatility of use).
