Chiari Malformation is described as a serious neurological disorder where the bottom part of the brain, the cerebellum, descends out of the skull and crowds the spinal cord, putting pressure on both the brain and spine, and disrupting the normal
flow of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF). About 1 in 1,000 Americans are affected by this disabling disorder. The list of symptoms is long and very greatly from patient to patient. There is currently NO CURE and brain surgery is the only option to help stop the progression of symptoms, but unfortunately surgery is not guaranteed to help at all.
