The effects of multiple sclerosis reach much further than wreaking havoc on the body’s nervous system; this disease can destroy a sufferer’s ability to lead a normal, healthy, and productive life. This does not have to be the case.
Chiropractic treatment for multiple sclerosis is a logical choice, given that the disease is neurological in nature, and chiropractic is concerned with finding and eradicating intrusions in the nervous system caused by misalignments in the spine. Our practice uses a variety of chiropractic techniques; the most common of these is an approach known as Chiropractic Biophysics (CBP).
It is important for patients to understand that problems in the nervous system (such as multiple sclerosis) often result from issues in the cervical, or neck, spine. These postural concerns are resolved gently and effectively through CBP because the treatment focuses on the spine as a whole (as opposed to individual vertebral subluxations) to return the nervous system to optimal functionality.
Chiropractic treatment is drug free; this makes it safe to begin treatment even before a formal diagnosis has been made. If you or someone you know is suffering from multiple sclerosis, please contact our office to learn more about Monmouth Pain and Rehabilitation.
