Chiari malformation and massage therapy

Hello Everyone,So I have been trying to do some research on if massage therapy can help ease pain and discomfort in patients with Chiari malformation. My mom was diagnosed about 7 years ago! And had decompression surgery in her C1-C5. I want to be able to help her with her pain but don’t know for sure if it is safe to work on her. I got in contact with someone from ABMP Andy they directed me here. Hope someone can help, thank you See More
