Sadly, the prevalence of multiple sclerosis (MS) is on the rise. Since 1991, this condition has increased by 50%. MS is neurological in origin and mostly affects young adults, ages 20 to 40. Women are more often diagnosed than men. MS is degenerative and incapacitating for those who suffer from it.
Multiple sclerosis attacks the brain and central nervous system and is generally categorized as an autoimmune disorder. It changes normal brain tissue and myelin – the fatty layer of protection around the nerves – into scar tissue. This leads to:
- Visual disturbances
- Feeling weak
- Experiencing brain fog (cognitive problems)
- Extreme exhaustion
Finding Answers to Questions About Multiple Sclerosis
Constant research is being conducted to find a way to help those coping with MS to feel better. New understanding is realized on a regular basis. For example, the body contains groups of cells called T-cells and B-cells. These have an important role in determining how the disease will progress. T-cells are known for attacking the myelin, while B-cells cause inflammation. However, it has been discovered that many kinds of B-cells exist and some actually reduce inflammation, having a good effect on MS. This can help in combating MS more effectively.
A Natural Way to Help Multiple Sclerosis Patients
An innovative way to help MS patients is becoming more and more popular. It is through upper cervical chiropractic care. Here at Synergy Chiropractic, we focus on ensuring the proper alignment of the C1 vertebra. This bone plays an important role in the function of the nervous system and brainstem. If it becomes misaligned due to an accident or a blow to the head or neck, it can negatively impact the function of the brainstem, thereby causing improper signals to be sent to the body and brain, creating the kind of symptoms seen with MS.
Case studies show that when the C1 is misaligned, blood flow and, in turn, oxygen to the brain is reduced. Another study of MS patients revealed that after receiving upper cervical care, symptoms of MS improved, and some had it go into remission for an extended period of time.
