Is Chiropractic treatment beneficial for CCSVI?

Post by dc10 » Thu Sep 01, 2011 3:02 am

i used tio go to a chiropractor many years ago as an MS patient but didnt rweally notice much difference in my mobility. so i stopped going.


but now i know iu have CCSVI which has been ballooned 3 times, could chiropractic treatment benefit me?

this time i can let the chiropractor know i have CCSVI and maybe he may know a suitable treatment
like treating my neck/upper spine?

as i have/hgad IJV anbd azygos stenosis, i also have restless leg syndrome in my left leg (the weaker one) but this has only become noticble over the last ye

dc10,

I am having ongoing chiropractic treatment not on for Atlas and the knock on affects that has caused me several spine misalignments.

Anyway I didnt really have circulation issues so the results from my first or second treatment was that my blood flow increased how I knew that was the upper veins in my hands reappeared, I hadnt even noticed that they had gone. It was only the fact that I had inherrited my Dads hands which are very prominant with veins.

Here in UK not all chiropractors deal with the cervical spine (neck). So it is best to ask first.

Fiona
I do my own research, and find my own answers Its good to talk

@dc. If you watch the video I just posted of Dr Arata speech ar Barrie Ontario He talks about compression of the jugular vein by bones. I am pretty sure I have this as I always have to be looking up at the ceiling to have strength. The moment I look down it is like someone turned off the light switch, I literally collapse. From that, I am sure when looking up I have some blood flow and when I look down the blood flow is cut off.

I have had the procedure and have re-stenosed.
I have been seeing an upper cervical chiro for about 9 months now and it seemed to help especially in the beginning. I continue to go about 1 time every 3 or 4 weeks now. It seemed to help with my balance issues. Now they are just slight balance issues.

have you read the thread here on tims- ccsvi and ccvbp posted by dr. flanagan? he's for real and top of the line and will help you as much as he can. i doubt there are many others that have his knowledge. also read the posts by people he has guided and have gained good results.

it can do no harm.

i think upper cervical care has helped me more then 1/2 at least of the ccsvi surgery patients benefits.
