Chiropractic & Multiple Sclerosis
Ros has an amazing story about how chiropractic has helped her live with her Multiple Sclerosis.
As she says, she knows chiropractic doesn’t affect the disease itself, but it has helped her spine and nervous system function so much better. She has now been under care for over 6 months and moves and walks better than she has in years.
Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a condition which can affect the brain and/or spinal cord, causing a wide range of potential symptoms, including problems with vision, arm or leg movement, sensation or balance.
It’s a lifelong condition that can sometimes cause serious disability, although it can occasionally be mild. In many cases, it’s possible to treat symptoms. Average life expectancy is slightly reduced for people with MS. It’s estimated that there are more than 100,000 people diagnosed with MS in the UK.
It’s most commonly diagnosed in people in their 20s and 30s, although it can develop at any age. It’s about two to three times more common in women than men.
Chiropractic doesn’t claim to alter the course of the disease of the central nervous system but it can help with some of the symptoms that are secondary to the disease. Have a listen to Ros, a recent patient and her account as to how it has helped her with MS.
