By far, this is the best read for patients and their families regarding ACM, I just wish that there were more medical studies regarding the correlation between Arnold Chiari Malformation and Upper Cervical Subluxation Complex: A Review of the Chiropractic and Medical Literature. Upper Cervical Subluxation Chiropractic studies are showing that MRIs taken before and after an orthospinology or NUCCA adjustment show the cerebellar tonsils returning back above the foramen magnum. Herniation of the cerebellar tonsils can be caused by conditions other than ACM such as intraspinal hypotension, intracranial hypertension, spinal cord tethering, brain tumors and other growths, upper cervical subluxation, etc. While the absence of cerebellar tonsiliar herniation does not exclude the diagnosis of Arnold Chiari malformation, it is definitely central to it. Kirk Eriksen discusses in his book the role of the Dentate Ligament which attach the spinal cord to the dura matter and keep it in the central location. The first pair of dentate ligaments ascend upward and into the foramen magnum to attach to the dura of the posterior fossa. They are located between teh vertebral artery anteriorly and the hypoglossal nerve posteriorly, and the spiinal accessory nerve ascends on the posterior aspect.Read more ›
