Have you ever wondered what the Clear Liquid around the brain is for?! Some people feel pulsing and pressure in their head and neck and sometimes it may be coming from this fluid’s movement patterns. This week we review a paper titled “CEREBROSPINAL FLUID STASIS AND ITS CLINICAL SIGNIFICANCE”.
The Cerebrospinal Fluid (CSF) is a tremendously important part of the normal brain and body function. The CSF brings nutrients to the brain and takes away the toxic metabolic waste the brain is constantly producing. This fluid is clear and flows through large passageways following the path of least resistance. We are finding out that this fluid flow can be stopped by structural barriers and cause abnormal wearing and tearing and degeneration of tissue as it either pounds up against, or settles into tissue. When the fluid flow stops or becomes static we call this stasis. Stasis can produce what is known as plaquing in the brain. There are many neurodegenerative diseases like Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s, and Multiple Sclerosis that can come about from plaque building up and metabolic wastes not being taken away. We know that Upper Cervical Chiropractic care can bring a more normal flow back to the brain and spinal cord. So if you know of someone that has recently developed a neurodegenerative disorder, an Upper Cervical Chiropractor may be an important piece of the puzzle to help that person get their health back.

CSF fluid flow is very important, and there are a couple of Imaging Centers in the United States that focus specifically on looking at the CSF known as FONAR upright MRI centers. On their website http://www.fonar.com/index-no-flash.htm they have countless studies of pre and post changes in CSF flow before and after Upper Cervical corrections to the upper neck by DR. Scott Rosa. When the upper neck is out of alignment it pulls and tractions the brain and the spinal cord, creating a cork in the bottle effect on the fluid flow around and out of the brain. After Upper Cervical Corrections the neck relaxes and the brain returns to its normal position allowing for fluid to flow more normally. The implications of Upper Neck corrections by an upper cervical chiropractor are literally infinite as the brain controls the body. So no longer do we talk in terms of just changes to the neck or spine, but literally changes in how the brain functions. If you know of someone suffering from a chronic neurodegenerative disease like Multiple Sclerosis, Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s, and dementia, Upper Cervical Chiropractic care can help get the brain functioning properly again.
