Right now, it is estimated that about 400,000 people in the U.S. suffer from Multiple Sclerosis (MS). That number increases by one person with every passing hour, and that hour can come for any person at any age.

Multiple Sclerosis costs $10,000,000,000 in medical expenses every year, as well as there will be additional costs to the individual. Those additional costs will be due to the need for assistive equipment, paid personal care, unemployment or underemployment, modifications to that home to accommodate the person’s disability, and unemployment or underemployment.

A Study on Multiple Sclerosis

Though, the more and more we know about Multiple-Sclerosis, there more evidence that arises that it’s due to neck injuries. A MS study by Dr. Erin Elster which identified misalignments in the upper neck vertebrae due to head or neck trauma is one such study.

Through various testing, she determined a head or neck trauma that resulted from the neural canal and resulted in theĀ  neuropathophysiology of 44 people with Multiple-Sclerosis. An adjustment to the upper cervical spine, which are the top two vertebrae in a person’s neck, led to 40 of those 44 patients experiencing noticeable improvements in their health. They other four also reported they did not see any regression of their symptoms of Multiple-Sclerosis.

Triggers of Multiple-Sclerosis

Now, there can be many events that trigger new or recurrent symptoms of multiple-sclerosis, depending on if, how severely, and where they effect the Central Nervous System. That will alter the blood-brain-barrier, which causes damage to the Myelin Sheath, which may be the underlying cause of MS.

In order to avoid your share in that national $10,000,000,000 bill medical bill, as well as countless thousands of dollars in lost wages and other expenses to you, allow an upper cervical chiropractor to examine your upper cervical spine. They can determine if there are any misalignments that may be the underlying cause of any present or possible conditions, including Multiple-Sclerosis.
