Does Chiari get Worse With Flexion or Extension

Published November 19, 2017

Hello Professionally Integrated,

Here is a cool study that shows how spinal shape and movement can change a Chiari. On this site I posted a paper about MVC causing Chiari  https://professionallyintegrated.com/diagnosis/instability/chiari-caused-from-wad/

Here is a bit at what the authors mention

"Although minimal, we found that in many patients with a Chiari I malformation, the cerebellar tonsils ascended." 

 

"Based on our findings that the tonsils in most Chiari I patients move caudally during flexion" Now, I would suggest with Chiari to co-manage it with perhaps another provider . . .
