The comprehensive symptom relief provided by chiropractic care can reach all the way out to various health conditions, ranging from those as simple as spinal discomfort and as severe as scoliosis. Chiropractic care has actually been linked with the bettering of numerous physical and mental health conditions alike, including fibromyalgia, and epilepsy!
One study looked to present clinical evidence for chiropractic’s usefulness using a patient with multiple sclerosis (MS). The diagnostic criteria included advanced imaging, as well as a possible relationship between manual adjustments and pain symptoms linked with MS.
The primary clinical variable was a 32-yr-old man who experienced numbness ranging from his lower trunk all the way down to his distal lower extremities, both the front and back. His family had a history indicative of MS; the man’s reflexes were very hyperactive, and after administering the neurological pinwheel exam, hypoesthesia was evident. Furthermore, a biomechanical vertebral segmental disability was detected. A secondary neurological examination along with evidential multifocal demyelination lesions, verified with magnetic resonance imaging, further confirmed the aforementioned findings; a lab screening had non-revealing results.
The patient was administered manual adjustments in hopes of addressing his spinal segmental disability; after just the first chiropractic treatment session, the patient indicated a total absence of accompanying MS pain symptoms. Next, a second opinion was obtained through a medical neurologist to help rule out other possible reasons for the patient’s sudden disappearance of pain. The second opinion confirmed all initial conclusions were verifiable.
It can be said, therefore, that chiropractic adjustment techniques can be responsible for a dramatic reduction of symptoms for at least one MS patient. The relative ratio of benefits-to-risk indicates that this holistic therapy could serve as an appropriate alternative approach for symptom relief of MS patients, while future bodies of research should continue focusing this chiropractic method on the symptom relief for this disorder.
