    Someone dope-slap me if I'm wrong but aren't these Chiari malformations and filum terminale issues only associated with a small percentage of scoliosis cases?

    This thread is certainly on topic in a scoliosis forum because we definitely have parents and patients with this condition but I think it may not be clear that this is not relevant to the majority of IS cases which have not diagnosis of associated Chiari or FT issues.

    Just hoping that is clear.

    It seems that at least in some cases, Chiari and Scoliosis has the same cause (Spinal traction). It seems that this kind of surgery woorks in those cases.
    I donīt know if it is possible to measure the spinal traction. I think that only Ostheopats knows about it.
