Arachnoiditis - Fighting Back, is a new Documentary Produced by " SNAZZ REALITY ", and is the world's first full featured video illustrating Adhesive Arachnoiditis.  The film explores Adhesive Arachnoiditis in great depth and detail explaining just what it is, How is it caused, and why the doctors are so reluctant to diagnose it.  This Documentary brings to light what so many Arachnoiditis sufferers have been experiencing for years but have been unable to convey to their families, friends and unfortunately their General Physicians (GP).

The Documentary features interviews with the world's experts and leading authorities on Adhesive Arachnoiditis, including Dr. Charles Burton, Dr. Sarah Smith, Prof. Antonio Aldrete as well as many Arachnoiditis sufferers.  The video also provides descriptive animations and statements from leading pharmaceutical companies.

SNAZZ REALITY Has donated Arachnoiditis Fighting Back to COFWA for distribution in the USA.  See ordering information below.

In the mean time we have placed these extended clips on our website for all to view. The clips include COFWA members who were featured in the Documentary, Dr. Sarah Smith and Carole Ringham, as well as a clip by Dr. Charles Burton and one of the fine animations that appears in the film, illustrating how a lumbar puncture can lead to Adhesive Arachnoiditis.

These are however just a few short clips and we do recommend seeing the Documentary in it's entirety.  We will make an announcement as soon as Arachnoiditis Fighting Back is available here at COFWA so check back often for updates.

  COFWA member, Dr. Sarah Smith disagrees with the use of epidural steroid  injections in the management of back pain.   What is Adhesive Arachnoiditis? What causes Adhesive Arachnoiditis? an animated overview of a spinal injection.   Dr. Charles Burton explains the difference between Arachnoiditis, and Adhesive Arachnoiditis.  

We want you to know that we support this documentary because we believe it contributes to Arachnoiditis awareness and education at the patient level as well as on an educational platform that physicians should recognize. The content of the video is excellent and if you can afford to buy it we recommend you do so.

Dr. Charles Burton of the Institute for Low Back and Neck Care in Minneapolis said:

"Arachnoiditis: Fighting Back, is the most balanced and superbly crafted documentary I have seen yet on arachnoiditis. The producers deserve the sincere appreciation of a society which does not yet understand how very meaningful and important this information actually is; and will continue to be. I was very much touched by the power of this presentation."
