According to a report in the Journal of Vertebral Subluxation Research, Chiropractic care may be effective in reversing the symptoms associated with Multiple Sclerosis.
Researchers evaluated the Chiropractic care of a 47-year-old female patient, diagnosed with chronic, progressive Multiple Sclerosis.
After the patient received four months of Chiropractic adjustments to her neck, the symptoms of MS were absent. In addition, an MRI could not identify any new lesions and showed a reduction in the intensity of the original lesions.
A second MRI was performed one year after the study. No new lesions were detected and a continued reduction in the original lesions were noted once again.
Two years after the study concluded, an absence of all MS symptoms were reported.
“This case revealed that Chiropractic treatment was associated with a successful outcome for a patient with MS,” authors of the study noted.
Post-MRIs, post-thermographic scans, and the patient’s neurologist’s evaluation all suggested that Chiropractic intervention may have stimulated the reversal in the progression of MS.
