Multiple Sclerosis, MS, Extreme tiredness, Dizzy, Dizziness, Weak, Fog, SclerosisMultiple sclerosis (MS) generally affects those in the age range of 20 to 40. It is a neurological condition that is quite debilitating to those suffering from it. This condition has seen a 51% increase since 1991, with women being diagnosed twice as often as men. It is viewed by many experts as an autoimmune disease.

Multiple sclerosis causes damage to the central nervous system, including the brain and the spinal cord. It attacks the protective coating around the nerves, called myelin, creating scar tissue. What symptoms are commonly associated with MS?

  • Cognitive issues
  • Weakening of the muscles
  • Vertigo (a spinning sensation) or dizziness
  • Problems with vision
  • Extreme tiredness

The exact cause of MS remains a mystery in the medical community. This means that a variety of different options are available to help those suffering, but the benefits vary from person to person. Recently, a study revealed that the average cost for medications to alleviate MS on a yearly basis was $60,000.00! Comparatively speaking, in the 1990’s the cost of similar drugs was not higher than $11,000. One would think that along with higher cost and more availability the effectiveness of the drugs would become better. This is not the case, however. As a result, many people are beginning to seek out natural ways to cope with their MS symptoms.

Natural Multiple Sclerosis Relief by Gentle Means

One area that is seeing success in helping patients suffering from MS is that of upper cervical chiropractic care. At Synergy Chiropractic in Anchorage, Alaska, we use the latest advances to examine patients for a misalignment in the upper cervical spine. This has often been seen in MS patients.

Case studies have revealed that if a person has a misalignment of the neck, this can reduce the amount of oxygen that is getting to the brain. This, in turn, can cause the symptoms of multiple sclerosis. Other studies have shown that MS patients who have received care from an upper cervical chiropractor saw a vast improvement in their MS symtpoms. Correcting a patient’s misalignment is often all that is needed to help provide a measure of relief from such symptoms.
