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.
