WAVE 2020: Ill Effects of Head/Neck Trauma to the Cranio-cervical Junction, A Neuroradiograhic Review (Rosa, Online 2021)
Malformations and misalignments in the craniocervical junction can cause tension, compression and shear stress resulting in displacement and deformation of intracranial and spinal canal structures. They can also cause dissociation of CSF flow between the cranial and spinal compartments and exaggerated pressure waves. This dissociation is suspected of playing a role in hydrocephalus, Chiari malformations, and other disorders. It may similarly play a role in neurodegenerative brain diseases in adults. We'll take a deep dive into anatomy, imaging, and case studies that shed light on this important understanding.

Scott Rosa, DC
Dr. Scott Rosa has devoted his life to studying and improving the effects of trauma and misalignment to the upper cervical spine, specifically the craniocervical junction. Injuries to the head and neck are not always visible with the typical imaging technology used to help diagnose patients.
Rosa’s patented Dynamic Upright Magnetic Resonance Imaging (DMRI) technology helps with making diagnoses, which shapes the care he provides. Former Chicago Bears quarterback Jim McMahon received treatment from Dr. Rosa after suffering three concussions and early dementia. Dr. Rosa’s DMRI revealed significant disruption in his craniocervical junction that resulted in cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) pooling his frontal lobe. Dr. Rosa’s Trauma Imaging Foundation website writes: “McMahon says that Dr. Rosa’s TIF research and treatments literally ‘saved my life.’”
