im thinking of the upright mri post saying 7 out of 8 had a previous trauma and all had low csf flow with the csf being blocked in the upper sine, i think they said upper spine.
does ccsvi restore blocked csf flow ?
thats why i strongly urge every single person, not just ms, to get checked out by a ucc dr to see if they could benefit from ucc.
alot of ms'ers say theyll do anything to fix their ms but i have yet to see it as most of those go straight to ccsvi without giving ucc a seconds thought but hey theyll do anything to fix their ms, right.
Are these nerves inside or outside the CNS?Amir wrote:civickiller wrote:The loss of mobility is more than likely related to the chronic damage to the nerves, emanating from the spine, by vertebral rotations.

Cranial Instability and CCSVI (David Williams, CANADA)
CCSVI is a complex condition that has a clear association with several clinical illnesses. It has been shown
repeatedly that, by itself, CCSVI is not the primary cause of these illnesses but appears to be present in
association with other, as yet, unknown factors. CCSVI shares clinical features with the Central Venous
Stenosis which is a complication of hemodialysis. The relationship of altered venous pressure and cellular
responses on the endothelial wall are well documented. The discovery of a mechanism by which intracranial
pressure and exit venous pressure may be subject to paroxismal changes during sleep cycles may contribute
one such factor worthy of closer examination. Jaw clenching in the form of nocturnal bruxism occurs during the
REM phase of sleep. The forces involved can exceed conscious clenching forces by several times. The muscle
groups that are activated in this scenario are closely associated with cranial structures and may have a
profound impact on venous pressure directly and indirectly. The discovery of sutural instability during jaw
clenching in a group of multiple sclerosis patients could lead to fluid trauma to the contents of the skull and
the endothelium of the extracranial venous system. This mechanical trauma could be expected to precipitate
microbleeds, accumulation of iron, axonal death, blood brain barrier disruption, amyloid accumulations
and other processes that are found in post traumatic brain injury. If this phenomenon is present prior to the
deterioration of the venous system as found in CCSVI, it may be a significant factor in the treatment of
neurological illness and may enhance the outcome of venous angioplasy.
