Observations at the Cranio-Cervical Junction, CTE and Observations of CSF
During the past year, CCSVI Alliance has facilitated the introduction of Dr. Scott Rosa to the CCSVI community. We want to thank the many physicians who have participated in GoToMeeting exchanges with Dr. Rosa and to those who participated and attended the Doctor’s Roundtable in New Orleans where Dr. Rosa was a member of the speaker’s panel. We hope you find the video recording of Dr. Rosa’s presentation interesting and informational.
Dr. Scott Rosa has been working as a chiropractic physician for over 25 years. During his years of observational study, he became aware of the pathological CNS damage due to disrupted cerebrospinal fluid flow and arterial/venous flow. In the video, Dr. Rosa refers briefly to his extensive research on the effect of acute and chronic trauma at the upper neck and lower skull. http://informahealthcare.com/doi/abs/10 ... alCode=bij
Also, of interest is that Dr. Rosa was the treating doctor in a study of multiple sclerosis patients who had suffered prior cervical trauma.
Question? Is the breakdown of arterial/venous and CSF flow a contributing factor in neurodegenerative disease? It is encouraging to see recent research addressing this question. A study authored by Dr. Robert Zivadinov and completed at BNAC showed that CSF flow dynamics were altered in MS patients.http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/22733409
Medical research scientists and physicians will be discussing the pathology of aberrant fluid flow in the cranial vault at the 2014 International Society for Neurovascular Disease Conference (ISNVD) in February 2014. http://www.isnvd.org/index.php?site=home
I am optimistic that by looking more closely at the cranial cervical junction, physicians will begin to find the answers.
Personally, my interest in Dr. Rosa’s work started in 2011 when I became aware that I had an open, stented left jugular vein that had little venous flow (measured by an ultrasound and MRI/MRV using the Haacke protocol). My CCSVI treatment at Stanford in 2009 was successful – I had sustained improvements but I was concerned about the decreased blood flow. In 2012, I connected with Dr. Rosa and became a participant in his study. In the video, Dr. Rosa reviews my images pre and post Atlas adjustment. In his presentation, he also speaks of my grandson who has not been diagnosed with MS, but probably related to a traumatic birthing experience, developed the type of lesions indicative of a demyelinating disease. The images are very dramatic pre and post Atlas treatment.
The methodology used by Dr. Rosa is unique within the chiropractic field of treatment. He uses x-ray studies and upright MRI scanning images to determine his treatment protocol. It is amazing to see the significant difference in image results when you compare upright scans to recumbent scans. The effect of gravity on body mechanics and pathology is only shown in the upright MRI.
For further understanding of the biomechanics of fluid flow in the CNS, I suggest reading the works of Dr. Michael Flanagan. http://uprightdoctor.wordpress.com/
