    My neuro got my MRI films and he said I definately have a Chiari Malformation....he showed it to me...creepy. I did some research and found this article I wanted to share.

    He suggested I try an inversion table. Does anyone here have one?

    For whoever mentioned surgery, I think that it used to be all the rage for Chiari, as it would often bring immediate results, but then down the track some people end up worse off than what they started. It can end up being a vicious circle of surgeries over & over again :(
    Alot of people have Chiari malformations & never have a clue. I remember reading an article where a specialist on it had some of the people in his office scanned & his secretary had a deep herniation & had no idea as she had no symptoms.
