Arnold-Chiari Malformation Support Group

Arnold-Chiari malformation, sometimes referred to as 'Chiari malformation' or ACM, is a congenital anomaly of the brain. Arnold-Chiari Malformation II occurs in almost all children born with both spina bifida and hydrocephalus, but ACM I is typically seen in children and adults without spina bifida.

Don't lay/sleep on back

I have chiari many years (8 mm on last MRI).  I stopped laying on my back


(sitting in a lean-back seems to be OK) and my symptoms stopped. 



(except for the Tui na that I just had - assume this will go away and then no symptoms)
