I am lost for words, I am surprised at the lack of interest in these case studies, your book and other papers that are available.
It seems to me that it will take a group of passionate people to go through your file of data and articles and assemble it a way that cannot be ignored.
It seems to me that everyone has a piece to the puzzle, some in their story and others because of the articles they have kept over time. Is this something a publisher, editor, brainstorming group, Cece (TiMS) could pull together so it is in one place and well presented, like the work of Marie Rhodes with her book CCSVI as the Cause of MS.
Frustration has me thinking we are sitting on our hands and not wanting to do this well. As though we are holding the cards too tightly and need to ask and find the 'magic' person to put this together and other(s) to lead the education

i recall you saying you prefered to work on the total spine in given situations. i lean that way.---i agree totally about the cervical as my experience with that. but the spine the total spine has issues and needs help. is that where the decompression tables would come in and lets say one might get the most bang for your buck?
i've got to for sure get rid of the spurs and stenosis. but for me and others here there are a lot of battle wounds that have accumulated that will or should be addressed so as to have the best chance of gaining back what we can for the better.
by the way as you describe your weekend feast----i am drooling-----and it is not caused from a so called ms symptom. enjoy!!
NZer1 wrote:To paraphrase what has been said in general,
Dr, You have observed symptoms that occur after some injuries that may have happened to the upper spine, at this time technology does not identify the cause of the symptoms.
There is however changes from what is perceived as the normal structure by xray and or MRI that have been observed "after the fact".
Some people with these changes have symptoms and others have none. Some develop symptoms over time/years.
There are people with a dx of MS who have history that includes injury and they may have Venus dysfunctions at the same time.
To date there is no connection between the symptoms and the causes that have been theorized.
There is no consistency in cause and effect, although assumptions have been made that there is a percentage change of co-incidence.
That chance is not enough to predict symptoms occurring.
The symptoms commonly spoken of in this discussion are very similar to Transverse Myelitis which has been related to spinal cord disease with various theories of causation.
I am personally getting to a place in my thinking that we have possibility of symptom management if we investigate spinal structure and alignment, as well as, vascular flows from the brain. That there has been damage done one way or another and that 'may' be treated to delay the symptom progression.
It also in some cases may enable regeneration to some types of the damage done by these problems and the scaring and healing process that has followed over time.
At this time the flows of blood and CSF are suspected to be altered in people with injury and or malformation of vessels carrying these fluids and this is being researched.

If medicine was based on results there would be an outcome, too many people and corporations are based on financial reward, but not in the wellness industry!
I am focused, like you, on finding the 'X' factor. It has not been an easy road. And the journey is often better than the destination!
There are too many people who have dirtied the water for those that follow.
We will succeed!

"full spine and body and specific upper cervical?" i've found most will say they do it all. went through that for yrs. -- i've learned more, ask more but these for sure will be like finding hens teeth.
i don't like the idea of one chiro. popping and another cracking. but, i am where i am. i can tell i need both. i'd think it would be of way more benefit if one was doing it all too. that just makes good sence. i am gonna check out the chiro. near here that has a decompression table. i'll bet when i ask him if he can do specific upper cervical the answer will be yes. "of course i'd have my questions." i'm not knocking any in particular. just like this chiro. he did great for my friend's problem but i am very complicated. i can't afford physically or financially to keep switching and there is a lot at stake. i know there are many others in the same boat. your info. has already helped many including me.
