Multiple Sclerosis Relief - Naturally
The inconsistent nature of MS symptoms person to person makes it hard to understand what options are best for you. Generally, multiple sclerosis treatments involve drugs and other therapies that are designed to reduce MS related symptoms. Individuals seeking out natural solutions for multiple sclerosis treatment may find benefit with structural interventions including targeted NeuroStructural Chiropractic care.
Structural Injury As Contributing Factor Many MS patients have a history of significant structural trauma including whiplash, car accidents, sports injuries, concussion, or other head and neck injury. The cervical spine (neck) is a complex system of movable bones (vertebrae), elastic muscles, and delicate nerves (including the spinal cord). Certain structural conditions such as Atlas Displacement Complex (also known as upper cervical vertebral subluxation) can result as a consequence of head and neck injury and have overlapping symptoms with conditions such as multiple sclerosis.
There are a number of side effects of Atlas Displacement Complex that occur when the weight of the head shifts away from the body’s center of gravity. Increased stress on the discs, ligaments, and soft tissues of the neck cause irritation, inflammation, and ultimately progress to include conditions such as osteoarthritis, degenerative disc disease, and nerve impingement. In time, one or more secondary conditions (a.k.a. symptoms) are likely to develop.
Common conditions that develop secondary to Atlas Displacement Complex include:
- neck pain
- pinched nerves
- brain fog
- fatigue/low energy
- poor posture
- balance issues
… and more.
Many of these symptoms mirror the symptoms of Multiple Sclerosis, and may be related to abnormal alignment of the head and neck. Understanding all of the contributing factors is key for slowing the progression of MS and for maintaining a good quality of life.
