I have questioned that exact thought. Just my from my experiences with my improvements from angioplasty, vein bypass surgery and AO adjustments plus spinal decompression and the changes when I change my position that theory does not make sense. At least not to me. My condition change so radically in a second. My hot head, now comes and goes when I change position. You said that is because of CSF flow problem. I think my coccyx is now more curved in as it is pinching my intestine more than before. What if CSF flow is be affected down there because of this? Just a thought. I never suffered from any eye problems, fatigue or loss of balance when tilting my head backwards like so many others with a MS.uprightdoc wrote:The connection between the dura mater, tailbone and skull is the basis of craniosacral theory. A genetically short spinal cord causes drag on the dura mater, which can be seen on MRI as a tethered cord that descends past the T12/L1 area. Neurosurgeon, Dr. Thomas Milhorat developed a unique system of imaging "occult" short cords in the supine and prone positions to check for tension. Some surgeons cut the filium terminale to release tethered cords.
While the pelvis may be contributory in your case, it has nothing to do with the cause of MS or your present condition. I suspect your problems are due to the "plaque" you describe seen in your cervical spine.
