Finding Relief for Multiple Sclerosis
By Virginia Laird
There is no cure for Multiple Sclerosis (MS). Once diagnosed, a lifetime of prescribed painkillers becomes inevitable. Wouldn’t it be nice if there was something that could be done without another pill to take? With the help of your chiropractor, those afflicted with MS may be able to decrease the amount of medicine taken for pain.
MS is a disease that debilitates those who suffer with it. Symptoms of the disease include muscular exhaustion, difficulty balancing, and issues with coordination. Chiropractors can help treat these symptoms.
When seeking help from your chiropractor, keep in mind the following:
- Chiropractic care coexists with primary care
- Chiropractic care can help reduce the amount of pain medicine required
- Remember to be vocal
Chiropractors suggest care that complements and coexsists with the care of your primary care physician for MS. Seeking minor adjustments from your chiropractor can help make certain your body is restored to its natural balance. This can help with balance issues that arise when your MS begins to wave its unwelcomed banner.
Along with helping with balance, your chiropractor can help with muscular exhaustion. You will have the opportunity to visit with your chiropractor and develop a personalized plan that will include stretches and sitting positions that can help your muscles perform at their prime. These stretches can also help build stamina in your muscles. This can help to prevent exhaustion as frequently.
Reducing the Need for Painkillers
The effects of prescribed medicine can be wonderful when necessary. The side effects not so great. It is nice to have the opportunity to reduce the amount of medicine that is needed. While suffering with MS you may never really be able to get off of painkillers completely. You can decrease the need for them by applying frequent visits to the chiropractor. Your chiropractor can help to restore function to your central nervous system. This will be done with simple adjustments to the spine.
Remember to be Vocal
Every chiropractor that helps you with MS will want you to keep in mind that there is no cure for MS. Treating the symptoms is the only thing that can be done. You have to be vocal about your symptoms. Each case will vary. Therefore, there is no blanket plan. Everyone who seeks help will get a personalized plan. The plan will help treat your symptoms. It can help alleviate some of the pain that comes with the devastating MS disease.
