Cheer's excellent self-report on her Atlas adjustment

(I've had spondylosis from C2-7, migraine, dizziness, neck pain for many years) My atlas was rotated by several degrees, and since adjustment, I'm headache and dizziness free, and my neck no longer has sore spots. To say I'm a believer might be an understatement :)
thanks,

Cheer's self-report on Dr. Flanagan's thread, "CCVBP and CCSVI," is such excellent news, imho, that it should be shared with the entire CCSVI subforum.

Hopefully, everyone (Cece this includes you, too <grin>) who reads cheer's post and Dr. Flanagan's thread will consider AO chiropractic (specific upper cervical) because a misaligned Atlas (C1 vertebra) can cause neuro symptoms from venous back pressure and impinged/blocked veins, arteries, nerves, and CSF and lymph flows.

Edit: changed <g> to <grin>

Thanks, HappyPoet--
yes, it's been most enjoyable to have no more dizziness, neck pain or migraine issues after 10 years of cervical spondylosis. The irony does not escape me. I had been having a rough time of it, was complaining about my issues, and my friend at CCSVI Alliance got me a referral. I do not have MS, no white matter lesions on MRI, but I've had neck issues all my life (fell down a flight of cement stairs as a kid and got a bad concussion.)

My hubby Jeff (who does have MS) is interested is getting checked out, but because he no longer has headaches or neck problems since his high stent, he feels atlas rotation might not be an issue for him. When he gets some time, he'll most likely get a check up. He's really happy that I'm doing better....now I can keep up with him :) We had a WONDERFUL local doctor recommended to us. But not all AO practitioners are at the same level, and AO is a very specific treatment. I've seen a chiropractor for years, and this was nothing like the upper cervical treatments I've had. There were very specific measurements taken, using x rays. And the tools are all part of Dr. Roy Sweat's protocol.

Dr. Flanagan is a real champ, and a hero to many with neurological issues. I'm grateful to see all the pieces of cerebral perfusion (mechanical, structural, chemical) coming together. Gives me hope that we can help people keep their gray matter.
best,
cheer

I've been open to trying this myself since I started hearing of some of my TiMS friends getting great results! It's very encouraging.

great news cheer!

interestingly I just started having work done on my neck at physio b/c of landing on my head when I crashed at work in march. I have to say that after even one assessment session, my neck seems less painful. I haven't heard anything about my atlas yet.

I did hear that my alar ligaments are in good shape and my homework was to look up what those are. I think the actual words were, 'you know what the alar ligament is? [no.] okay you like researching things, look that up'.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alar_ligament
"The alar ligaments connect the sides of the dens (on the axis, or the second cervical vertebra) to tubercles on the medial side of the occipital condyle.
They are short, tough, fibrous cords that attach the skull to C2 vertebra (via the dens) and function to check side-to-side movements of the head when it is turned.
The alar ligament is also known as the "check ligament of the odontoid.""

there, done my homework for Monday :)

Yes this is (also) good news from cheerleader. :-D It seems to me that neither treatment for CCSVI nor treatment for a maladjusted spine nor treatment with stem cells nor treatment for immune system malfunction will always work if

(a) the problem is congenital, taking different forms depending on genetics, environment, possible exposure or unusual susceptibility to some pathogen -- Murphy assures us it will not work, some of the time.

(b) the problem is not only blood drainage, but CSF drainage as well. There are various problems which might be causing symptoms blamed on 'MS', or possibly on other diseases.

I am curious why more medical disciplines do not seize this area of investigation and find out answers to their own long-standing questions. The brain is in charge of so many other systems/subsystems that it will inevitably affect things like cardiac, endocrine, vascular, and other areas, disturbing feedback and homeostasis. 'MS' patients may need care related to their condition by ear-nose-and-throat, or osteo, brain surgeons, or a number of other specialties. If journalists, health-care professionals, politicians, etcetera, continue to squabble, progress will be a very long time coming.

We live in the 21st century AD. It's too late to decide on adjusting to the Internet.

Trauma >>>> time >>>>> MS .... in about 6 % of people.

Compare that with the national percentile of pwMS. Less than 1 %.

The math is too strong to ignore. The neck is an amazing part of your body.

So important. So easily damaged. As we have come to know. :-x

This is all good, the more people are looking into neck, teeth, upper spine, lower spine or any spine for that matter, the better.

There is undoubtedly an element of misalignment causing many symptoms currently attributed to MS. Now the hard bit starts, tying it all down and working out how to connect the dots.
