Multiple Sclerosis Relief through Upper Cervical Chiropractic
Multiple Sclerosis Natural Treatment Twin Cities MNMany people with Multiple Sclerosis have searched endlessly for natural ways to heal themselves from the symptoms associated with this autoimmune disease. Symptoms of Multiple Sclerosis may include: pain, tremors, muscular cramping, difficulty walking, involuntary movements, muscle paralysis, fatigue, dizziness, heat intolerance, poor balance, vertigo, weakness, and many more debilitating problems. Blair's Upper Cervical Chiropractic care is seeing dramatic results with Multiple Sclerosis cases. Dr. Erin Elster published an extensive case series on Multiple Sclerosis and how traumatic head and neck injuries prior to diagnosis may be a causing factor. (1) Dr. Elster found patients who received Upper Cervical corrections had incredible improvement in symptoms and a halt in the progression of the disease. Dr. Scott Rosa, another Upper Cervical Doctor, and researcher have found that Multiple Sclerosis patients have restricted Cerebrospinal Fluid (CSF) flow which can return to normal levels with an Atlas (C1 vertebrae) correction. (2) Not only are patients seeing a change in CSF flow, but they are also seeing dramatic improvements in other Multiple Sclerosis symptoms.
The Blair TechniqueBlair's Upper Cervical Doctors focus all of their attention on the top two bones in the neck. Blair Upper Cervical Chiropractic is a health care procedure with the goal of locating and correcting spinal misalignments in the neck. There is mounting evidence that upper neck misalignments interfere with normal nervous system function. These interferences can present with various symptoms that many healthcare providers simply mask with medication. When patients visit a Blair Upper Cervical doctor a complete history is taken. The patient is then run through a series of objective tests that determine if the patient suffers from Upper Cervical
Spine misalignment. If the testing indicates there is nervous system interference, then a set of precise x-rays are taken. The x-rays visualize the joints between the head and neck to measure the direction and magnitude of the misalignment. The information received from these tests helps the doctor make a custom-tailored correction. Blair Upper Cervical doctors do not use gross cervical manipulation, so there is no cracking or popping of the neck. Instead, they use a gentle correction specific to each patient. Thus, no patient receives the same correction.
The goal of Blair Upper Cervical Care is for the correction to “hold” as long as possible. When the spinal segment returns to its normal position and “holds,” it allows the body to function better. By using a Blair-specific adjustment of the Upper Neck we can unlock the joint and allow the cerebrospinal fluid to flow freely, and free the Central Nervous System, which controls every part of the body, so it can function properly.
