Sad but true, chiropractors and manual therapists are still seen as quacks by a group of people at this side of the Ocean.

I'm sure there are problems in my spine, but no neurosurgeon or orthopedic doc sees it...
When i show your opinion..ah, just theories my friend; we dont do theories...

But i dont give up...when i can do a cine mri in Germany at fonar i will go there..
Hmm.. Have to send a mail to fonar again and ask about the upgrade status

Doc, is there no contact between fonar uk and fonar us? I think about the trial dr damadian/dr rosa are doing...

The surgeons are well aware of the problems in your spine. They just don't see the connection between the degeneration in your spine and the MS.

I am sure that Fonar Corporation in the US is in contact with the Fonar facility in the UK. That doesn't mean that the radiologists at the UK facility accept my theory or even know about it. What Dr. Rosa is doing is using upright Cine MRI to show the impact of upper cervical misalignments on venous drainage and CSF flow. The lower cervical and rest of the spine is another issue. Other studies will need to be done show the affect of spondylosis, stenosis and scoliosis in the lower spine on blood and CSF flow in the brain and cord. Other techniqiues for correcting structural strains and faulty craniospinal hydrodynamics will need to be studied as well to determine the best method of treatment. There is still a long way to go. My new book will cover much more. Hopefully it will shed more light and encourage further research.

You are so correct Dr F. Orthopedic doctors are clueless.I really need a specialist with the pelvis. After seeing countless of doctors complaining of pain in the pelvis area, not 1 doctor has looked or touched me there. If you can recommend anyone. can no longer sit on my bum , always on my spine and I have total pelvic instability. am afraid I need surgery now to stabilize the pelvis area.

A thorough orthopedic examination of the pelvis includes: x-rays, MRI scans, postural analysis, range of motion, muscle tests for grade of strength and quality of contractions, palpation of the origin, insertion and belly of all the muscles attached to it, and deep palpation of the ligaments for tenderness, as well as all of the above tests for the hips. The organs of the pelvis and the diaphragm must also be examined. The pelvis is as complicated as the upper cervcial spine if not more so.

Unfortunately, I don't know who to send you to Dania. As I mentioned, it's difficult for me to find qualified doctors here in the US. It's much more difficult trying to find doctors in countries outside the US, including our neighbor to the north.

dr. Flanagan, what do you think of this place? or the same old same old. they say they take the time to "listen to their patient" no complaint ignored. my understanding is they do it all. sounds good if not too good to be true.

Hello Blossom,
The Wisconsin Chiari Center is a good and so is the Chiari Institute in New York. I recently sent a complex case to the Chiari Institute in NY for a second opinion regarding intracranial pressure problems not for decompression surgery. She has been treated unsuccessfully by many doctors and chiropractors, including specific upper cervical. As I suspected she has an exaggerated clivoaxial (upper cervical angle) between the base of the skull and the upper cervical spine. The exaggerated angle strains the brainstem and cranial nerves.

Dania,
Calcification is the opposite of joint instability. It means that your left sacroiliac joint is calcifying (fusing). It's most likely due to the chronic inflammation. Lithotripsy (ultrasound) is used to break up kidney stones. Ultrasound can likewise be used to break down calcification in joints if it's not too bad.

I haven't seen it yet but I will look for it. You need to update your servers over there. It takes a long time for messages in a bottle to cross the Atlantic.
