Chiropractic: Run Faster, Jump Higher, Be Stronger

It’s summertime and we’re out playing. Can Chiropractic really help sports performance? It certainly does, and that’s why professional sports teams keep chiropractors on staff so their players’; bodies are more balanced, their nervous systems are healthier, their muscles function at their peak and, if they get hurt, they recover faster from injuries.

Chiropractic can give you the winning edge. Of course, you don’t need to be a professional athlete to benefit from chiropractic;
anyone who uses his/her body needs it to function at its peak. That means everyone, including you, your family, your friends and sports team, can have the winning edge. (1-3)

Chiropractic Case Study: Multiple Sclerosis

Chiropractic clinical case histories have been a regular feature of our patient newsletter since its inception. There seems to be no limit to the health problems that respond to chiropractic care. How many people suffering, on drugs, facing a life of limitation could be helped by chiropractic care? 

Probably most of them.

Multiple Sclerosis (MS) and chiropractic Multiple Sclerosis

A 39-year-old wheelchair bound woman with a 20-year history of Multiple Sclerosis wished to begin chiropractic care. MRI confirmed her diagnosis revealing that she had multiple brain lesions. The patient had been under medical care and was experiencing increased disability with multiple movement and sensory deficits. She also had pain, visual loss and inability to walk.

Vertebral subluxations were located. X-ray and other analysis revealed C2 and C3 (upper neck) subluxations. Chiropractic adjustments were given only at the C2 vertebral segment level. The patient’s care plan was over 18-36 months.

A follow-up MRI revealed no active plaques in her brain. Concurrently she experienced decreased multiple sclerosis symptoms. She had improved function that included the ability to walk.
