Dr Tennant's latest Handbook. Please take the time to read it.Here is the intro:
"This is our 5th handbook edition for patients and families with adhesive arachnoiditis (AA).
Major goals of the “Arachnoiditis Research and Education Project” are to teach self-help and
bring medical treatment, know-how to medical practitioners in every community. This goal is
quite different from the one we initiated 5 years ago (1st Edition Handbook, 2013) which was to
bring “awareness” of the disease to the World. THINK BACK. FIVE YEARS AGO, THE TERM
“ARACHNOIDITIS” WAS CONSIDERED A “SPIDER BITE” OR A RARE, HOPELESS, OBSCURE DISEASE THAT SHOULD
BE IGNORED AND DISMISSED. WE HAVE PRETTY MUCH ACHIEVED THE “AWARENESS” GOAL. IF A MEDICAL
PROFESSIONAL PRACTISING IN 2019, INCLUDING PHYSICIANS, NURSES, PHARMACISTS, PSYCHOLOGISTS, AND
PHYSICAL THERAPISTS, AREN’T YET AWARE THAT AA IS IN EVERY COMMUNITY AND MEDICAL PRACTICE, I
SUGGEST THEY HAVE BEEN LIVING UNDER SOME ROCK. Let’s be clear. A high percentage of people
who are diagnosed with “failed back syndrome”, who have had multiple surgeries or epidural
injections, or who have a genetic, tissue degenerative disease like Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome
likely have AA. Let’s also be clear that, after several years of research, AA can definitively and
finally be recognized and treated."
