My thoughts were that the pelvis manipulations traveled up her spine and caused the C1 to misalign and wondered if correcting the C1 would make it travel back down again.
She had xrays done that show the spinal curve is progressing and the pain in her lower back is increasing. They also showed that her pelvis has rotated in the opposite direction to what it was pre-osteopath. Can I ask also, could only her C1 be responsible for the severe twist in her neck and jaw etc?
How could spasm alone make her head tilt right over to the extreme? Should I be seeking other treatment for her too, pelvis work, muscle work etc. I am so confused by this mess.
Dr Grant feels a lot of the twists and turns are neurological responses and I am sure that is a factor. Also is there anything she should avoid for fear of making her worse?
She is convinced this is a permanent deformation and I cant persuade her differently. If she doesn't see some improvements soon I fear the worst. I need all the advice I can get. Thanks.

As her pelvis was moved, her neck and head was also. I was speechless. Her neck muscles are now running in completely the wrong place. Would this pelvic problem not show in her neck due to the close relationship they have?
Are you saying you think Nucca is the wrong approach in your opinion? Or should be accompanied by other treatments also?

All the other adjustments I had improvements but not as good as the first. I just cannot hold the adjustment any longer than 5 days. I guess I have been out of alignment for too many years. After talking with others that are receiving AO adjustments their story is the same as mine.And they all say that the had the best results with the first adjustment. I just started taking Lisinopril and it is helping many of my symptoms. What I am wondering if putting a shunt in like the do for babies with hydrocephalus could that help people like me?
As you know, the condition of your spine poses a huge challenge to say the least. Your question regarding shunts is a good one and timely. I will be covering the third ventricle in the next post on my website, which will be followed by a post on endoscopic third ventriculostomy. ETVs are internal shunts rather than external shunts. I believe venoplasty, stents and shunts will be a part of the solution to improving blood and CSF flow in certain cases of neurodegenerative diseases. There are other potential therapeutic and surgical solutions as well that need to be considered and studied once we better understand the full rammifications of imparied fluid mechanics in the brain and cord.
