CSF Fountains, Pulsations and Flow

CSF flow is driven by waves called pulsations. If CSF waves are too strong or too weak, they can damage the brain resulting in neurodegenerative conditions such as Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease and mutliple sclerosis. Continue reading

Kyphosis, Stenosis and Multiple Sclerosis

Kyphosis changes the normal alignment of the spine and strains the brainstem and cord inside the skull and spinal canal. It can also lead to CCSVI, CCVBP and multiple sclerosis. Continue reading

Scoliosis, Chiari malformations and CCSVI

Abnormal curvatures of the spine, such as scoliosis can tether the cord and cause Chiari malformations and CCSVI. Continue reading

Craniocervical Syndromes, EDS and MS

Craniocervical syndromes may be a key culprit in many neurological and neurodegenerative conditions similar to their role in Ehlers-Danlos and multiple sclerosis. Continue reading

C1, C2 and CSF Flow

The upper cervical spine is critical to the movement of CSF into and out of the brain and cord, which is important to cushioning, protection and support of the brain. Upper cervical misalignments, design problems and degenerative conditions can interfere with CSF flow and function. Continue reading

Skull Design and Brainstem Compression

Among other things, the posterior fossa is shorter in European skulls compared to Asian and African designs, which may expalin the difference in the incidence of multiple sclerosis, optic spinal MS and Devic’s disease seen in the different races. Continue reading

Round Heads and Devic’s MS

Rounder head designs may predispose Asians and African-Americans to a more severe form of MS called Devic’s disease, which is also known as neuromyelitis optica (NMO) or optic spinal MS. Continue reading
