How Chiropractic in Cape Coral Can Help with Multiple Sclerosis
Multiple sclerosis in Cape Coral is a disease affecting the brain and spinal cord that is brought on by an immune system malfunction. When the immune system attacks the myelin, the protective sheath around nerve fibers, it leaves behind damage and lesions on the brain and spinal cord. This causes an interruption in the communication between the brain and the rest of the body. The symptoms of multiple sclerosis are different for each person and at each stage of the disease, and depending on the location of the nerve fibers that are affected. Some individuals may have very few symptoms, while others may have serious complications.

Chiropractic for Multiple Sclerosis Symptoms
There is no singular cure for multiple sclerosis, but there are various treatment options available to help manage symptoms. Some of the most common treatments in conventional medicine include medications like steroids, muscle relaxers, and tranquilizers. Other forms of treatment include changes in diet, exercise, and physical therapy. Since multiple sclerosis is a disease that affects the central nervous system, it makes sense to consider upper cervical chiropractic care as an excellent option for the relief of symptoms. Regular visits to your Cape Coral chiropractor will remove misalignments and restore communication within the entire nervous system, further improving the function of all the body’s systems. Dr. Omar Clark at Experience Health & Wellness Center offers safe, natural, and effective solutions for your symptoms so you can live life to the fullest, even after a multiple sclerosis diagnosis.
Has Chiropractic Helped Others with Multiple Sclerosis?
Complementary and alternative treatment methods have shown to be effective in the management of multiple sclerosis. Recently, studies have been conducted and have proven upper cervical chiropractic care to be a safe and effective method for managing multiple sclerosis symptoms and possibly eradicating the disease altogether. One study was conducted on a 32-year-old male who was experiencing numbness in the lower body and extremities. The patient reported a “complete absence of symptoms following the first treatment intervention.” Another study was conducted on 3,140 individuals in the United States, with 57% of them using alternative medicine therapies. Around 25% of those individuals chose chiropractic and reported the complete absence of symptoms including numbness, fatigue, cognitive difficulties, and gastric issues after chiropractic adjustments.
