Multiple sclerosis (MS) is reported as "the most widespread disabling neurological condition of young adults around the world." In fact, approximately 200 new of MS are diagnosed weekly in the U.S. alone. Although there is no cure for this condition that is characterized by muscle weakness and spasms, balance issues, fatigue, and vision problems, Sport & Spine, your Bend, OR chiropractor might be able to help.
By treating MS patients' subluxations with chiropractic adjustments, especially those focused on the upper cervical area, research has shown that the symptoms may 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.
