Multiple Sclerosis, CSF leaks, and NUCCA part 2 of 2

Last time we looked at how new technology is allowing multiple sclerosis researchers to see misalignments in the upper neck that are leading to increased intracranial pressure, cerebral spinal fluid leaks and eventually the process of multiple sclerosis. The most exciting aspect of these findings is that unlike nerve tissue, the myelin sheaths that are damaged in [...]

Multiple Sclerosis, CSF Leaks and NUCCA Part 1

For decades multiple sclerosis researchers have discussed the correlation between trauma and the onset of MS. But until recently, researchers were unable to directly see the CSF leaks and CSF flow obstructions that have now been made visible by new technology called phase coded MR imaging. A paper, titled “The Possible Role of Cranio-Cervical Trauma and Abnormal [...]
