What is Multiple Sclerosis?

Multiple sclerosis is a disease that affects a patient's brain, spinal cord, and the optic nerves. It is typically a long-lasting disease, with patients facing symptoms for the rest of their lives. However, the severity of the symptoms varies among patients. While some patients can manage the condition without treatment, others may struggle to complete ordinary daily tasks. Patients whose eyes are affected typically begin experiencing symptoms of blurry vision, color dullness, and pain in the eyes. Patients may also feel numbness and tingling as well as trouble with coordination or clumsiness, particularly in the legs. The condition is caused when the body's immune system attacks myelin, which is a fatty material that protects the nerve fibers. As a result, nerve fibers can become damaged. 

Diagnosis and Treatment

Multiple sclerosis is difficult to diagnose. There is no single test used for diagnosis. Instead, doctors use a patient's history and symptoms, as well as ruling out other conditions, to make a diagnosis. Once diagnosed, a patient may seek treatment for bothersome symptoms. Medications can ease symptoms to help patients live a healthier lifestyle. Doctors may also recommend lifestyle changes, including diet and exercise, to promote health and ease symptoms. There is no cure for multiple sclerosis.

Chiropractic Care for Multiple Sclerosis

Chiropractic care may be used as a complementary treatment for multiple sclerosis. Since a chiropractor makes adjustments to the patient's spine to promote health and multiple sclerosis affects the spine, the adjustments in chiropractic treatments can have a positive effect on the patient's symptoms. Since there is no cure for the condition, symptom management allows patients to live healthy, happy, productive lives after developing symptoms. In addition, chiropractic care can help ease anxiety, which is common in patients with chronic illness.

Reviews By Our Satisfied Patients

  • "Dr. Clarke is the best in the business!!! He is knowledgeable, thorough, passionate, kind compassionate, and always professional. He worked me into his already busy schedule, when I was having severe vertigo, caused by a pinched nerve in my neck. Dr. Clarke had me back to good in just a few short weeks."
    Jennifer D.
  • "I have had a hard time finding relief for my back pain, I've been a chronic 7 for almost 5-6 years now (on a pain scale from 1 -10). After about 6-7 visits and after 3-4 adjustments, I was amazed to realize I no longer had any back pain. Dr. Clarke was careful about doing adjustments until he saw all my x-rays, which I appreciated, as my mid-back was literally like a 'brick' and I didn't want to get hurt in the process. He is very gentle with the adjustments and I'm still somewhat speechless tha"
