Hello Sisteract,

I apologize for the delay but I have reviewed Dania's images and sent you a PM regarding my recommendations.

I have been asked to do classes and conferences for NUCCA, Othrospinology and Blair, as well as others, such as state societies. I also have a request for a bulk order of my book to sell at the conferences. Unfortunately, we only have a limited supply left and the price on Amazon has gone up a bit as the book is no longer in print.

Hi Doc,

I was thinking about stopping te chiro treatments, but i went to George yesterday again after two months (holiday etc).

Hello Robert,

You are still young and have a long way to go. Your condition causes structural imbalance and chronic strains that can cause co-morbities (secondary problems). You need to keep your spine in the best condition you can to prevent further degeneration of the spine and spinal canal. The Cox 8 Flexion-distraction table is the finest traction type table currently available for rehabilitation of spine. In the hands of an expert in offers tremendous flexibility in addressing a multitude of issues associated with the spine and spinal canal. It can mobilize all the segments of your spine in all their ranges of motion as well as circumduction (circles). It can also be used to move blood and CSF flow past obstructions in the spinal canal, which will increase blood flow to the spine and cord. It is a very fine table. The flexion-distraction headpiece was the most recent improvement. Hopefully, the design and concept will continue to evolve. You should get your spine stretched and worked on periodically.

Interesting how bumps on the head cause issues!

Bumps on the head are often associated with neck trauma as well. Aside from blunt force type trauma to the head, it's hard to separate head and neck injuries. They often occur together.

Interesting how we 'humans' come to conclusions in 'science'!

The human mind can only define things that it has been taught or experienced and languaged, so what ever we look for, look at or find can only be put into words we know.

Put another way its like the story from India where 6 blind men describe and elephant after each is stood in front of places around an elephant. The man at the trunk sees it as a snake, the man at the ear sees it as a fan, the man at the leg sees it as a tree, the man at the tail sees it as a whip, the man at the side sees it as a wall and the last man has no arms.

We can only assume things are as we have knowledge of them rather than observe the full and also the surrounding. (Tao or Synchronicity or God or what ever your learning has told you ;) )

More than one thing happens at any time and there are compounding things rather than a moment in time like a pebble dropped in water having a ripple effect.

About twenty years ago I began the process but was halted by a District Council not allowing an establishment to be developed on our family farm.

Walked away from the drama and may one day do it again but from a different mind space and energy space! ;)

Hi Dr. Flanigan, it has been a while since we talked. Hope all is well. I came across this article. It may be old or new here. Since it can be caused by hereditary, trauma, and I also recently was told I have plaque on the cartoid artery that may need addressed. Any input.

Vertebral Basilar Insufficiency

Vertebrobasilar insufficiency (VBI) refers to a condition in which blood flow to the vertebral and basilar arteries is restricted, thereby providing transient insufficient blood flow to the posterior portions of the brain. The National Institute of Neurologic and Communicative Diseases defined the symptoms of VBI as: vertigo, ataxia, dizziness, syncope, drop attacks, visual disturbances and motor and sensory changes (sometimes bilateral). While VBI may be the result of a congenital abnormality, it is more commonly the result of atherosclerosis and resultant narrowing of the blood vessels. The characteristics of atherosclerotic plaque at the vertebral artery origin are unique from the morphological and pathological nature of plaque associated with the carotid. Vertebral artery plaques are often annular and concentric, hard and smooth, with minimal incidence of intramural hemorrhage or ulceration.


VBI may also cause a phenomenon known as subclavian steal, whereby blood is diverted from the vertebral-basilar system due to a subclavian stenosis. Subclavian steal takes place when a subclavian stenosis proximal to the origin of the vertebral artery leads to retrograde flow down the ipsilateral vertebral artery, thereby "stealing" blood from the circle of Willis, with the subsequent distal subclavian artery filling from the retrograding vertebral artery. When compensatory flow to the subclavian artery from the vertebral artery diverts too much flow toward the arm and away from intracranial structures, neurological deficits take place.

Diagnosis

Doppler ultrasonography is insensitive to vertebral basilar insufficiency due to the presence of surrounding bone and because the most frequent site for occlusive disease is at the vessel origin, a nonsuperficial location. The proximal vertebral artery is often tortuous, making accurate diagnosis of lesions difficult using MRA because of spin dephasing caused by turbulent flow.

Hello Blossom,

It's nice to hear from you. Thanks for asking. All is well. We poured the footers and frost wall of the foundation for the new kithchen and dining room of the restaurant. We hope to be closed in and weatherized by Christmas so we can finish the interior and hopefully be open for business by April or May.

I just finished the rough copy of my next book, which, among other things, includes migraines, seizures, silent/mini-strokes and other neurodegenerative diseases and their variants, including those of the cord such as amyotrophic lateral scelerosis/Lou Gehrig/motor neuron disease. Among other things, I cover the topic of vertebral-basilar artery insufficiency and subclavian steal syndromes. I also wrote a paper for NUCCA that should get published one of these days (it should have been published over a year ago), which also covers VBAI and steal syndromes. The link below is to a paper I published in 2002 on migraines and mini-strokes due to VBAI. It is my opinion that malformations and misalignements of the craniocervical junction can obstruct blood flow through the vertebral-basilar arteries resulting VBAI and chronic ischemia.


http://www.dynamicchiropractic.com/mpacms/dc/article.php?id=15397

I recently consulted and successfully treated a six year old boy with severe headaches, loss of appetite and dizziness. MRI showed a mega cisterna magna. Mega Cisterna Magna is a rare condition related to Dandy-Walker Complex, which I cover in my book. Mega Cisterna Magna is an enlarged cisterna magna. The cisterna magna is located as the bottom of the cranial vault beneatht the cerebellum. The cisterns are part of the subarachnoid space which also the location for arachnoid cysts. Mega Cisterna Magna is also related to Blake's Pouch Cyst, which is enlargement (hydrocephalus) of the fourth ventricle. Dandy-Walker complex is the opposite of Chiari malformations. In Dandy-Walker Complex, the cerebellum is pushed upwards in the posterior fossa not downwards. It is my opinion that certain cases of Dandy-Walker Complex, such as mega cisterna magna, are due to drainage issues and extra-ventricular hydrocephalus. The working diagnosis from the neurosurgeion was childhood migraine headache. I treated the boy three times. He was asymptomatic after the first visit.

Hi Blossom, I assume its good to have something to focus on and concider the possibility/probability that the finding is linked to the long list of symptoms we have.

I have been looking at our health challenges from a different angle than many and I believe there are probably 'reasons' for the vascular issues that are being found.

The insights that there are malformations, lesions and so forth is only part of the problem, my thinking goes into why are these issues occurring. And more importantly how are researchers looking at the 'whole picture' rather than what they know or what they can make money from.

My personal example of finding that I have intracellular bacterial infections of CPn and mycoplasma lead me on a journey of truth seeking.

I have put an article/paper link that appeared in my news feed the same day as your posting above, co-incidence or directional indicator?

Blossom,

Are you having and signs of symptoms of cerebral ischemia?

The plaque on your carotid artery had nothing to do with VBAI.

Hi doc,

I was reading about ppms and that these patiënts have more lesions in the cord than the brain.
I have 20+ lesions in the brain, did you see lesions in the cord?

Thx,

Robert
