The Faces of Arachnoiditis:   Men, Women & Children ~ Arachnoiditis is an equal opportunity disease ...

International Congress - Chambery, France 2010: This event was absolutely spectacular. Never have we seen doctors, researchers and patients side by side sharing information ... all working together to find solutions. A most unique conference .... the first of its kind. A huge thank you to all, especially Claudine and Muriel! There will be more information posted as time permits. A video by Claudine is pasted in here:

About International Congress: Chambery, France 2010:

AARMOR in collaboration with Tarlov Europe Information organized in Chambery, France on July 2-3, 2010 an International Congress: Meningeal Pathologies and Neuropathic Pain. 

This Congress, the first to unite so many foreign personalities and international reputations, promoted the information of patients and professionals, and also to allow that new researchers may work towards finding new treatments in these pathologies: Arachnoiditis, Tarlov Cysts, Cauda Equina Syndroms (CES) and related disorders.

Arachnoiditis USA was created to promote Arachnoiditis awareness, Arachnoiditis research, discover new therapies in an effort to achieve remissions and to support Arachnoiditis related organizations throughout the United States. This mission is extended to spread Arachnoiditis awareness and understanding throughout the world through attendance at international conferences to share experiences in hopes of discovering long overdue therapies for Arachnoiditis, Epidural Fibrosis and Failed Back Surgery Syndrome (a "catch all" diagnosis which is, all too often, Arachnoiditis).

Arachnoiditis USA - Mission Statement

The mission of ArachnoiditisUSA is to raise arachnoiditis awareness, help fund new research, find new treatments and therapies as well as support related arachnoiditis organizations throughout the United States.
