Spinal Stenosis on xrays look so just like meningeal adhesions on xrays.
We have meningeal releases done to break up the adhesions.
Dr. Paul Whitcomb talks about upper/cervical spinal stenosis on his blogs and meningeal compression. The C-1 (Atlas) being out of place can apparently cause meningeal compression. Meningeal adhesions, no doubt, cause the meningeal compression too.
The Paul Whitcomb protocol is now called Neurologic Relief Centers Technique (NRCT)
* if you are someone you know has fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue, then this might be the answer.
Meningeal adhesions can also be broken up by Advanced Biostructural Correction (ABC)
Dural adhesions in the skull by Neurocranial Restructuring (NCR)
Atlas Correction via several methods...

Atlas Profilax - http://www.atlasprofilax.ch/en/

NUCCA - http://www.nucca.org/
Erik Dalton has one of the best massage protocols and techniques next to Clear Passage technique. I had Hillary do one of his techniques on me during one of her pre-NCR massages. His dowager's hump correction is awesome.
* We have a Blair chiropractor that comes to town every other week here. I only let him adjust the Atlas and do an occiput lift. Sometimes he will adjust the hips, but the middle and lower spine, I do only the ABC version, so I can be adjusted A to P. The Blair guy still adjusts P to A, so I either let my hubby do the ABC or go to Jerry Porter and have him do the whole ABC protocol, including the meningeal releases.
The ideal would be to have ROLFing one day, and the next do ABC protocol and then follow with the Blair Atlas correction.
Bowen technique has had good reports and people highly recommend it. It is a fascial release technique. I've not tried it yet, but plan to eventually. http://thebowentechnique.com/
Many years ago, I've had the Clear Passage Therapies technique. Although it's promoted for fixing bio-mechanical dysfunction in fertility, they also correct the entire body's fascial adhesions, as well as visceral adhesions. http://www.clearpassage.com/ Some of it is alot like ROLFing, and some of it is very specialized techniques. Hillary Lamper's former massage assistant Jen did alot of stuff that Clear Passage did too.
I have access to ROLFing, so I do that when I can afford. http://align.org/
NCR requires a long road trip, so that's been 2 or 3 times a year. Only had 2 in 2014. I plan to have 2 or 3 in 2015.
I have my own massage cup set, so I can break up some adhesions with that. Anita Shannon's massage cupping technique and cups sets... http://massagecupping.com/ It can be as painful as some rolfing in some cases, depending on the area. The adhesions and hardened fibrin in the shoulder's area is often pretty tender.
I would like to take some of her workshops and/or DVD training. We've watched her Youtube videos and have done the techniques shown. https://www.youtube.com/user/ACEMassageCupping
Protealytic/Systemic enzymes such as Serrapeptase eats up the scar tissue, eats up excess hardened fibrin/fibrosis, and excess fibrin in the blood. I use either Fibrenza blend or GoodHealth/Naturally Healthy's brand, the one with 250,000 IU.
Elijah Free's Fibro-Ease will stop the body from laying down the hardened fibrin at the source, by addressing the rare potassium deficiency, and the Arthritis-Ease will help with the displaced and hardened calcium. TMJ-Ease is actually a combo of the both, save for one extra ingredient.
Since degenerative disc disease is common in spinal stenosis, nutritional therapy is also good, such as Dr. Brice Vickery's Platinum Plus Amino Acids formula. Those along with the systemic enzymes back in the day, saved me from alot of lower back pain, and that was even before ABC.
Alot of these are mentioned in a prior post here. http://messiahmews.blogspot.com/2014/09/corrective-chiropractic-jerry-porter-dc.html
Meanwhile... we're watching the Erik Dalton videos to pick up some techniques from there too, and will take the home course in due time.
Just think, how learning and knowing some of this stuff helps. We haven't learned all of it New skillz and money saved in the long run. There's nothing like it to be able to help yourself and your family.
