Everyone wants to get up every morning, and know that they can make the best of that day. They want to relax on the couch, take a walk, or do whatever else they want to do. The freedom of every person to do those things he or she enjoys the most is something most people have the opportunity to do. But sometime there are things that happen in a person’s life that sways the course of their life and changes their ability to make those choices.

Among the countless possible events that can lead to a person’s inability to make those choices is that of being diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis (MS). This will certainly change how someone looks at the choices they will make in how they live their life. They will need to make decisions about their health and well-being they hadn’t even considerer before that diagnosis.

Though, if you or your loved one hasn’t been diagnosed but currently going through testing, there will be a period of not knowing. That time can of enduring test after test can be very excruciating. We understand that waiting period can be trying for you and your loved ones. We know it can lead to sleepless nights, fights and arguments, and feelings of desperation. We understand what you or your loved one are going through, and we want to give you information to help you go through it.

Understanding Multiple Sclerosis

A person’s nerve cells are protected by something called a Myelin Sheath. MS occurs because your body’s nerve signals slow down or stop because that protective covering is damaged. This hinders your brain’s ability to communicate with your body. There are numerous factors that can lead to this, and every other possibility needs to be ruled out before the doctor will diagnose your child with MS. It takes time for doctors to conduct those tests, get the test results back, and eliminate every other possible diagnosis.

Next week, we’ll look at the symptoms of MS your or your loved one’s doctor is looking for, so you can better understand what to expect. Just know that there is no reason to be overly concerned, because there is something you can do to improve your health or help your loved one improve their health..

Even before you or your loved one receives a diagnosis of MS or any other condition, you can help them take their health into their own hands by seeking out the care of an upper cervical chiropractor. They will examine the neck of the person diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis to see if there are any misalignments that may be the underlying cause of their condition. A misalignment in the upper neck vertebrae of only ¼ of a millimeter can lead to all sorts of damage throughout the body, including nerve damage that manifests itself as multiple sclerosis or other conditions.
