Cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) is a clear (colorless and transparent) ultrafiltrate of plasma contained within the ventricles of the brain and the subarachnoid spaces of the cranium and spine.
It is an alkaline (pH 7.4) extracellular fluid.
It performs vital functions, including providing nourishment, waste removal, and mechanical protection to the brain.
Some 150 ml of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) is present around the central nervous system with a distribution of 125 ml within the subarachnoid spaces and 25 ml within the ventricles.
The optimal quality of the CSF is essential for the functioning of the brain and the whole nervous system.
What is its composition, its physiology, its flow and how can we as osteopaths influence its quality.
