Multiple Sclerosis Awareness Month: Discover Pain Relief This March! March 21, 2017

Multiple Sclerosis Awareness Month: Discover Pain Relief This March!, Archdale, North Carolina

March is Multiple Sclerosis Awareness Month—a time to reflect on the estimated 400,000 Americans who are living with this neurological disorder, according to the Multiple Sclerosis Association of America. Chronic pain is one of the disorder’s many symptoms, and many patients have turned toward natural, holistic treatments for pain relief. Chiropractic therapy is one such method that has helped people with multiple sclerosis and countless other painful disorders.

What Is Chiropractic Therapy?

Chiropractic care focuses on the musculoskeletal and nervous systems, and how issues with those systems can affect a patient’s overall health. Chiropractors often treat back, neck and joint pain, and headaches, but the treatment is not limited to these areas. Their treatment approach is hands-on and medication-free, often involving what’s called a chiropractic adjustment or spinal manipulation. This approach not only provides pain relief, but can also restore movement to the adjusted area. An adjustment is usually not uncomfortable although mild soreness might occur after a treatment.

Can Chiropractic Therapy Help Patients With Multiple Sclerosis?

In addition, patients with multiple sclerosis did experience pain relief in a preliminary study of 19 people in Rochester, NY. Chiropractic therapy is safe for most people, but those with multiple sclerosis or other medical conditions should consult their physicians before seeking treatment.
