chiari malformation

My daughter florence was diagnosed with this condition in 2010 aged 2.  My osteopathic skills helped diagnose her before she saw a medical team. The Borders General Hospital pediatric department got the ball rolling and without them, there may have been a different outcome. Since then we have had two operations at Sick kids in Edinburgh, they have been quite simply amazing.
