​​​​Chiari Malformation

Patient Story, Robin Nicholl

I've been sick most of my life. I have a lot of health problems that can get me down but I always try to work at being happy and as healthy as I can be thankfully ingrained in me from very supportive Grandparents and Mom and Dad.​ ​​

I also believe in trying to help others online who need someone to help and understand these illnesses and how to live with them. We never had support groups when I was diagnosed, it was scary and made us feel very alone, now no one needs to be alone especially with support groups like these. 

I've had success with Massage Therapy and Acupuncture so I'm continuing my route with more natural treatments and see what happens down the road from here because my main goal is to always try and have better health and a continued happier life.​

Chiari Malformations (CM)(key-Ar-ee—mal-for-May-Shun) are structural defects in the cerebellum, the part of the brain that controls balance. Normally the cerebellum and parts of the brain stem sit in an indented space at the lower rear of the skull, above the foramen magnum (a funnel-like opening to the spinal canal). When part of the cerebellum is located below the foramen magnum, it is called a Chiari malformation.
