Realigning Upper Vertebrae Can Relieve MS Symptoms, Chiropractic Studies Suggest

April 28, 2017

Chiropractic studies have shown that the Blair Chiropractic Technique may ease multiple sclerosis (MS) symptoms.

Chiropractic is based on the notion that the entire body can be affected by problems at the base of the skull, since all nerves pass through this region to reach the brain. The Blair technique involves adjusting the spinal column’s upper cervical vertebrae, or the neck area. These bones can misalign, interfering with the neck-area connection between the brainstem and neural canal. 91% of MS patients treated via the Blair technique showed improvements in their symptoms.

MS disrupts the flow of information within the brain and between the brain and body. It can affect the way neurons communicate with each other, which can result from misalignments in the vertebrae. Studies indicate that neck injuries have caused alignment problems in some MS patients.

Chiropractic won’t cure MS, but it can definitely help with treatment of the disease.
