    Hi there,

    Please do not be gullible with this kind of misleading information..I asked Dr Bergman 2 years ago about chiari malformation, He has not even got the answer from it...just be careful..I am sure if he has patients with this condition and recovering from it.there will be 100's people come to see him..as NO ONE LIKE to be decompressed... WATCH OUT..if any one read this, make sure to get his promise in writing that is after 90dAYS you are not healed you need to have your money back..

    Never ever let a chiro touch you with Chiari.  Could lead to some horrible problems.  See a neurosurgeon.

    Hi Dear

    Alternative therapies may ease the symptoms BUT surgery is the only option for chiari! Take it and don't dirt your mind with this day dreaming stuff. I am going to have an operation later this year, I am looking for it. I believe things will change. How do I know! I know because I had hernia operation 12 years ago and I run a marathon after the operation, I have been cycling to work 18miles every day. After chiari operation the best yet to come (may be another marathon)

    Being active ease the symptoms and help the recovery!

    Take care

    Hi,

    Please be extremely careful, I live in the UK & I was advised under no circumstances to go to a Chiropractor.

    I had gone to see a Chiropractor before I had an official Chiari & Syringomyelia diagnoses from the Neurologist & I can tell you afterwards I had real problems with my arms, they kept going numb. I believe my visit to the Chiropractor did more harm than good & wished now I had never gone!

    I am a strong believer in alternative methods, but I think with ACM & SM, medical intervention is a must!

    I had decompression surgery 12 years ago, & for the most part have lead a normal life again, with the exception of a few ups & downs.

    I would suggest seeing a Neurologist & please be very careful with regards to seeing a chiropractor.

    (When I was first diagnosed with ACM & SM, all the literature I read on the two conditions, including literature from USA, advised in big bold writing “UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES SEE A CHIROPRACTOR”).

    Hope this helps.
