Facing Chiari can be an overwhelming experience. Most people have never heard of Chiari so when they or a loved one are diagnosed they are thrown into a confusing world of tests and medical jargon without knowing what to do or expect. In the midst of this whirlwind, patients are faced with having to make important decisions with profound consequences. First published in 2008, Conquer Chiari: A Patient’s Guide quickly became a world-wide success with its combination of easy to understand, science based explanations and the author’s personal experiences. This Second Edition continues with that successful formula while also incorporating the most important research findings from the last decade. A Patient’s Guide takes readers through the different stages of dealing with Chiari and provides the information and tools necessary for people to take charge of their healthcare and make informed, intelligent health decisions.
