Civickiller I am glad UCC worked for you and for others! But you are being a bit harsh on CCSVI treatment in your comparison. It only became widely available last summer, so most patients are less than one year out from their first treatment.
Trusting doctors not to lie to them??? (I had an MRV done, which showed severe stenosis visible to myself, others, my GP, my neurologist, as well as my IRs. Don't think I was lied to.)
After 1st or 2nd chiropratic Atlas adjustment I noticed that my veins to my hands hadre appeared I hadnt realised that they had gone,but I have inherited my Dads type of hands, very veiny also my gums that had bled for years just stopped.
Now I am proud to have my Dads hands.
Another thing was my eyesight improved to the degree it was like someone had sneaked in and fixed my telly. I did not realise that my eyesight had got that poor, so I was pleasantly surprised.
I booked an eyetest and they had improved. didnt mention any of this to optician just for my records only.
I have bypassed this article time and time again. and this is part of what I am getting at. The cervical spine or the neck, that includes the Atlas, is so vulnerable to to stress, I think both physical and psychological. the back Dr would know.
I cant believe that I have missed this, what a complete Numpty I am.
I know it is a minefield out there finding a good Chiropractor. I come from uk and have been so lucky finding John. Who is treating me as me, not a condition.
Being on a low income, I hadnt got money to waste. So was prepared to ring around, stating that I wanted my Atlas checking. I knew what I wanted, I'm only interested in bottom line no superficial messing about.
Fortunately John goes by what he sees and not by xrays which was good for me as had a neck xray a while before and told nothing wrong, yeah right! well that wasnt the case.
I do my own research, and find my own answers Its good to talk
