This is of significance because the nuchal line may act as a hinge around which movement may occur between the superior membranous portion of the occipital squama and the inferior cartilaginous portion. During delivery and expulsion of the fetus, the occiput is positioned under the pubic symphysis around which deflexion of the craniocervical junction takes place. The superior and inferior parts of the occipital squama may be stressed with resultant cranial somatic dysfunction. Furthermore, infants with bilateral posterior flattening in non-synostotic plagiocephaly sometimes demonstrate severe flattening that is specifically localized to the area of the membranous squama.

The posterior intraoccipital cartilaginous synchondrosis participates in the extension. When the resilience of the tissue is overwhelmed, this can produce an intraosseous dysfunction within the occiput. Most of the time extension of the head does not occur in the pure sagittal plane, but rather in association with lesser or greater amounts of rotation and sidebending. Consequently, the resultant dysfunctions may be asymmetric, with one occipital condyle being more compressed than the other, or one side of the squamous occiput being more anterior, superior or inferior to the other.
