Chiropractic and Multiple Sclerosis
Multiple sclerosis, also known as MS, is a chronic disease that affects your, spinal cord, brain, and the optic nerves in the eyes. This disease is known to be the most common disabling neurological disease of young adults, mostly between the ages of 20 and 40 years old . For individuals who suffer from multiple sclerosis, research has found that new management options, specifically chiropractic care, can help. Our chiropractor in Port Jefferson has the experience and expertise to help individuals who suffer from this chronic disease.
The symptoms of multiple sclerosis affect everyone differently. Some individuals have minor symptoms and will not need treatment, while others may have a more difficult time completing daily tasks and need treatment right away. Because this disease affects your central nervous system, the communication between your brain and the body as well as your vision is greatly affected. Common symptoms of multiple sclerosis include:
- Difficulty walking
- Muscle weakness
- Blurred vision
The symptoms typically start mildly and eventually worsen over time. Our Chiropractor in Port Jefferson highly urges individuals who suffer from these symptoms to visit our office as soon as they begin to experience pain on a daily basis.
There is no treatment for this disease, however, there are pain management options. One of the most effective options is chiropractic care. Rather than take medications, chiropractic care is a great alternative to traditional medicine in healing the spine. One method that helps greatly with multiple sclerosis patients is spinal manipulation or adjustments. Spinal adjustments can help improve the function of the nervous system. With spinal adjustments, our chiropractor will help realign the spine into its correct position, reducing any stress on the nervous system and the body. This will allow the nervous system to function properly, helping reduce any symptoms.
