7 People with Chiari and CCI Share Their Stories

Maura was diagnosed with Chiari I in 2007 at age 6 via a traditional horizontal MRI. “I had a decompression shortly after diagnosis and had significant relief for 8 months. After that symptoms returned but slightly differently, so I had a full decompression. Turns out it was craniocervical instability that caused the symptoms to return after the first decompression so the second decompression was ineffective.”
