CSF, Clapotis, Cisterns and Cysts

It is possible that faulty CSF flow through the foramen magnum and upper cervical spine can result in standing waves and water hammers that causes cysts to form in the cisterns, subarachnoid spaces and central canal. Continue reading

The Missed Measure of Man

The design of the posterior fossa predisposes humans to normal pressure hydrocephalus (NPH), Chiari malformations, cysts such as Dandy-Walker syndrome, and neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s 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

Chiari Malformations and Cranial Nerves

Upright posture predisposes humans to Chiari malformations in which the brainstem gets compressed into the foramen magnum. A similar situation may lead to compression of the optic nerve and subsequent optic neuritis.
