Proper alignment of the upper cervical spine through chiropractic adjustments can improve the symptoms of Multiple Sclerosis (MS). The doctors at Current Chiropractic have experience working with MS patients to alleviate the pain and physical impairment related to the disease.

With MS, your body’s the immune system attacks the protective sheath (the myelin) that covers nerve fibers. This causes communication problems between your brain and the rest of your body. Over time, MS can cause the nerves to deteriorate or become permanently damaged.

Symptoms Include:

  • Arm or leg numbness
  • Visual changes
  • Uncoordinated gait
  • Speech impairment
  • Incontinence
  • Trouble walking or maintaining balance

How Can A Chiropractor Help Manage Multiple Sclerosis?

Knowing the nervous system is already impaired by the disease, our chiropractors work to make sure no other structural issues further decrease the body’s ability to send nerve communications. Our goal is to optimize the pathways within your central nervous system by properly aligning your spine.

A misalignment of the spine, in the neck region can negatively impact the proper functioning of the central nervous system because your nerves are pinched, compressed, or blocked.

Chiropractic adjustments will bring the spine into proper alignment, allowing for better functioning of the central nervous system.
