Sadly, multiple sclerosis (MS) is a neurological condition that is one of the most incapacitating among young adults. Around the globe, approximately 2.3 million people suffer from multiple sclerosis, while 400,000 in the United States are affected. You can develop this condition at any age, and there are various types, such as progressive, relapsing, and remitting. Women get it twice as often as men. Most people do not become severely disabled and can lead nearly normal lives.
Multiple sclerosis (MS) remains a mystery among the medical community. But it is acknowledged that it is linked to a malfunction in the central nervous system. The nerve fibers within the brain and spinal cord are protected by myelin. If your immune system begins to attack your myelin, scar tissue can be the end result leading to MS.
This information tells us two important things about MS:
- MS is an autoimmune disorder in which the body begins to attack itself.
- Inflammation affects the brain and causes the symptoms of MS.
So, what is to be done?
Caring for Multiple Sclerosis Through Proper Spinal Alignment
Tradition care for MS is limited in providing relief. However, an alternative way to care for multiple sclerosis has been proven to be effective. Many who have sought the care of an upper cervical chiropractor have seen positive results. Here at Pairmore Young Synergy Chiropractic in Anchorage, Alaska, we help our MS patients by focusing on the top bones of the neck, the C1 and C2 vertebrae. If these bones have moved out of their proper position, they can put undue pressure on the brainstem. This causes it to send improper signals to the brain and negatively impacts the central nervous system.
We use a gentle method to correct the problem and help the bones to move back into place. Studies have shown that those with multiple sclerosis improve 48% in immune system function when corrected. Another interesting thing happens: brain tissue that has been damaged by degeneration begins to heal. Inflammation decreases when the immune and central nervous systems are working at their optimum. This had led many to see a decrease in their MS symptoms.
