Our mission



At the Chiari & Scoliosis & Syringomyelia Foundation (CSSf) we work to enhance research, dissemination and the application of Dr. Miguel B. Royo Salvador’s medical findings with the support and collaboration of Autonomous University of Barcelona, Institut Neurològic de Barcelona and Institut Chiari & Siringomielia & Escoliosis de Barcelona (ICSEB), among others.

Our work focuses on three areas:



At the Foundation we work everyday to promote research and innovation regarding the knowledge of the Filum Disease and diseases associated with it: Arnold-Chiari I Syndrome, idiopathic Syringomyelia and Scoliosis. It is for this reason that we support the Research and Development (R&D) Department of the Institut Chiari & Siringomielia & Escoliosis of Barcelona (ICSEB). Holding R&D accreditations by ACIE and ENAC since 2011, this department proposes the study of the new clinical concepts applied at the ICSEB, its publication and diffusion to the entire international scientific community.



At CSSf, we promote training specialists who are interested in learning about the Filum Disease, a disease so common and yet so unknown until now. With the collaboration of ICSEB professionals, we organize and promote meetings, discussions and conferences in different countries and in different languages to disseminate the Filum System® Method, directed at to professionals as well as patients.

This allows professionals who wish to learn about the disease to make a first contact in their home country at one of these events, and then proceed to deepen their knowledge in the accreditation courses for the application of the health method organized by Filum Academy Barcelona® (FAB®), based at ICSEB, with which also we actively collaborate.



We are a non-profit organization that survives exclusively on donations and grants. At CSSf we work to help patients affected by the Filum Disease to receive the best possible treatment that improves their quality of life. In order to fulfill this objective, we count on the help from all the people like us who fight for a future without the Filum Disease and other diseases that it encompasses. We are looking for a better future for the patients.
