A diagnosis of multiple sclerosis (MS) for an adult can be frightening—even more so if it is a child. Parents want to make the best choices for their child’s future. This blog is designed to give parents some informative details about MS and help them make some choices about options for their child’s health.

Nerve Damage Caused by Multiple Sclerosis

The nerve cells of the body are protected by a covering referred to as the myelin sheath. When damage occurs to the myelin sheath, the brain signals the body to slow down or stop doing what it is doing so that no further damage ensues. This can be due to a communication problem between the brain and the body sending improper signals about what is really happening.

When someone is diagnosed with MS, it is important that his central nervous system is functioning at its optimum. One thing that may be hindering the nervous system and communication in the body is a misalignment in the upper neck vertebrae. The C1 and C2 vertebrae are located in the area where the brain stem meets the spinal cord. This area is the communication highway of the body. Misalignments in either of these vertebrae can wreak havoc on the body, leading to the symptoms of multiple sclerosis. Not only is communication hindered, but blood and cerebrospinal fluid flow are compromised.

Multiple Sclerosis and Upper Cervical Chiropractic

I have been specially trained to detect misalignments in the upper neck and then work with my patients to correct them. I use a gentle chiropractic technique that is safe for children. Once corrected, the body can begin to heal itself. Most MS patients, whether young or old, report a decrease in symptoms and long-lasting relief.
