Well first fitting successful and brace fitted and have to say that although I started this treatment to help with my MS symptoms, I had the best nights sleep for months. My usually painful hip was pain free... thank you Dr Amir

Hello Karen, I'm on the facebook thread.

It would be helpful if you start a thread on here similar to the one I started for Emmas treatment, like this:-

chronic-cerebrospinal-venous-insufficiency-ccsvi-f40/topic18706.html

It means tracking your progress then doesn't get caught up in general conversation on the subject.

Spinal Alignment in Multiple Sclerosis
http://us1.campaign-archive2.com/?u=646 ... 34c092eb5b

At The Essential Health Clinic we are fortunate in having a multidisciplinary team who have been involved in managing patients with Multiple Sclerosis. This has involved the use of nutrition, supplementation, immune modulators such as LDN and more recently investigation and treatment for venous hypertension associated with CCSVI. We have also become aware of the importance of spinal alignment in some patients with MS through the work of Mr Tom Craig, a registered physiotherapist who works independently from our clinic.

Mr Craig explains “Physiotherapists, osteopaths and chiropractors have been aware of the subtle therapeutic effects of gentle neck and spinal manipulation. These improvements are often only temporary as the body has a tendency to revert to the compromised position after manipulation so requiring ongoing treatment. Experienced holistic dental practitioners also have been aware that cranio-mandibular influences and compromised jaw occlusion can influence balance, hearing, vision and gait. In many cases, the fitting of a temporary bite repositioning appliance results in a symptomatic improvement. Dental, orthopaedic or orthodontic treatment may provide a more lasting solution to alignment problems than manipulation of the spine.


It is critical for the body to be structurally aligned in order to attain and maintain health. Structural alignment means the head, neck, lower jaw and dental occlusion should align with the vertebrae, pelvis and extremities. If alignment or tone of the body structures ( skeletal, muscular, vascular and connective tissue) is not optimal or symmetric, other structures will compensate for this imbalance and eventually fall out of alignment as well.

Compromised movement patterns and poor posture will also result in structural misalignment.


Structural imbalance can be caused if the head improperly rests on the first cervical vertebra, triggering an incorrect twisting and rotation of the segments of the spine. This imbalance can start a process of vascular and lymphatic compromise which may ultimately lead to structural degeneration at the tissue and cellular level.

Tom Craig is a very experienced multi disciplinary physiotherapist who can assess structural misalignment issues and possible intrinsic links to CCSVI. The assessment usually lasts approximately 90 minutes. Further referral can be organised e.g. holistic dental practitioner. A full assessment for spinal alignment costs £175 and can be booked by contacting the clinic on 0800 027 4969.

Yup, just got the same email.

You saved me posting it.

What Amir did over a period of some years was combine the dental and best parts of the chiropractic side (Atlasbalance) of this under one umbrella. That's why Emma is seeing him.

He charges a lot less than £175 for a consultation too.

I am glad the main stream has taken on what I have postulated for some 15 years. I believe Stanford is advising the same. It is about time that we deal with patients in a holistic way. I am reposting what I wrote on another thread:

The divisions of medical training and practice subdivides the human body into many component parts. It further tries to pigeon-hole every ailment into further smaller bits creating specialists in every field. This has been going on since pharonic times with little change over the centuries. My worry is best described by quoting the following:
“Ever increasing specialisation is clearly leading to a fragmentation of knowledge. People today have so much information and so little grasp of its origins, meanings, and uses that overall comprehension has frayed beyond repair. Even as specialised knowledge increases, communication between fields decreases. Within fields experts address larger and larger problems in smaller bits. Modern society faces a dark age in the midst of intellectual plenty, a paradox that can be resolved only by reintegrating knowledge in new ways”. *

And medicine needs the most integration. We are one whole being. We are compact. We need one holistic approach!

Amir,
Thank some one for the Internet!
It has the potential to re-group the knowledge pool.

Well said.
My focus has been to disseminate knowledge directly to the patients. Trying to address authority has always led to suppression. This forum is a unique tool whereby the patients can get the most out of the internet.

It is good, without the internet CCSVI would never be where it is now.

It will be interesting to see if it does the same for Jaw and upper cervical misalginment.

It is good to see other established centres embracing these ideas having arrived there completley independently.

Emma prefered to become a patient of Amir as he's been doing this for 15 years.

Here are a couple of quotes from another thread that will introduce some further thoughts on alignment

"There are doctors in podiatry who maintain that upper cervical misalignments, dental malocclussions and TMJ problems are due to pronated (flat) feet.

http://www.positivehealth.com/article/b ... oot-motion

Similarly there are doctors in chiropractic who maintain that the lower spine, pelvis and sacrum (the base of the spine) are the root cause of misalignments and deformation of the upper spine.

It takes significant training in orthopedics and neurology to know the difference."

"Here is some more information on using foot orthotics to correct TMJ and many other orthopedic and neurological conditions.

http://www.back2feet.net/index.htm"

So many opinions from people who have a passion for their own Theory, where does reality lie?

These are all great links, did you happen to read the comments at the bottom of the article linked above?

Quote:-

Christina Smith said..

I can well believe the relationship but i think you've got it upside down - distorting the balance of the head by shortening the back of the neck and pulling the head down and back causes both malocclusion and, because of resultant structural imbalance of the whole frame - pronation of the feet.


Reply:-

Prof/Dr Brian A Rothbart said..

Dear Christina, You are correct. Postural distortions can go in either direction: Ascending - from the feet up and Descending - from the jaw or cranium down. I have touched on this subject in my research website at: http://rothbartsfoot.es/AbnormCranMech.html The above article discusses just the Ascending pattern.



Sounds very interesting.

The first article is excellent. I have been studying the subject for many years. I have used the most sophisticated orthotics on patients feet and in fact now have the most modern foot, spine and hip analyser (Deers 4D Formetric). I am using it to confirm all the various thoughts and opinions.

There is a lot of truth about descending problems and very little confirmation of ascending problems. Correcting the feet is never going to correct adult cranial distortions as the article admits.

Having a theoretical knowledge of the bodily inter relationships is fine but delivering the treatment is quite a different matter.

Adjusting the Atlas instantly levels the hips out but cannot correct the foot arch collapse where arch supports become important. However there is also a surgical technique of implanting the Arthrex Biotenodesis Screw which also corrects flat feet.

Most patients present with what is called a 'short leg'. Clinicians working from an ascending perspective might attempt to fit a heel lift. The 'short leg' however instantly corrects when the Atlas is corrected confirming irrefutably the presence of a descending problem which affects almost 90% of western society.

Thanks Amir, when I was younger after one of my back injuries the Chiro I used did full body xrays and measured leg bone lengths etc, and found I had right femur 18mm longer. Heel lift was made and funnily enough they made it for the wrong side. I was in a state to put it mildly for the next period of time till the next Chiro visit.
I still use a lift today BTW.

Ahh, Amir showed us that machine on Emma's initial visit.

This is all fascinating I have to say. I just need to get that crash course in anatomy so I understand the interactions a little better.

After a little over 2 months treatment Emma's Atlas was checked and found to have corrected itself as a result of the jaw alignment treatment.

She now has a perfectly straight Atlas and upper cervical without the need for any direct manipulation or repeated manipulation.
