Chiropractic Beneficial for Multiple Sclerosis
By treating MS patients' subluxations with chiropractic adjustments, especially those focused on the upper cervical area, research has shown that the symptoms often improve...sometimes significantly. The best part is that this form of treatment doesn't rely on trying to find a medication that works, which is a bonus because there are only currently 12 FDA approved medications for MS at this time.
Ultimately, by treating the underlying spinal dysfunction, this results in a higher quality of life for the person afflicted with this condition.
