Chiari Malformation with Syrinx / Migraines / Menstrual Issues
"Chiari Malformation with Syrinx is a fluid cyst on the spinal cord caused by crowding at the base of my skull. The neurosurgeon said cranial decompression surgery was my only option. I decided to try acupuncture. Since receiving acupuncture treatments with Dr. Christine at A Way of Life Acupuncture, I have avoided the cranial decompression surgery and reduced the pressure on the spine, and eradicated the fluid cyst. Within 6 months the cyst was smaller in size and by 1 year, the cyst was completely gone. My neurosurgeon said there is no other case of the cyst going away without surgery. (I have 2 MRIs that prove a complete reduction of the spinal cyst.)
Prior to starting acupuncture, I also suffered severe migraines, extreme menstrual cramps, headaches, and vomiting before and during menstruation. I have far less frequent migraines with regular stress management treatments. When I do have an active migraine, Dr. Christine is able to resolve the migraine that prior trips to the ER could not resolve. Dr. Christine has also helped to alleviate the various menstrual issues. I am very satisfied with my treatments with Dr. Christine and refer friends and family to see her."
