Hello, this is Dr. David. I am reviewing your question now and will be with you momentarily.
in the USA, there are alternative doctors such as osteopathic medicine doctors who treats Chiari malformation using cranialsacral therapy which is an extremely gentle form of manipulation to create a therapeutic response in the body
also you can try acupuncture to see if that helps chiari malformation
but if these don't work, you may have to have surgery for the herniation of 1.5cm.
are you having headaches or nausea or neck pains at this time?
you are in Japan?
talk to you doctor about acupuncture to see if that works
or else, you may need to have surgery to repair your Chiari malformation.
let me know if you have other questions.
