Multiple sclerosis (MS for short) is a type of disease that disturbs the central nervous system within affected individuals. The impact of multiple sclerosis on individuals varies wildly, from some individuals being able to function relatively normally while other individuals may have debilitating effects from the condition that make daily living a challenge.

What if there was a way that you could manage your multiple sclerosis pain even better, and what if you could do so in a safe, natural, drug-free way? A Bentonville chiropractor and neurologically-based chiropractic care can help ease the pain of multiple sclerosis and help your body achieve wellness and normalcy once again.

How Chiropractic Care Impacts Multiple Sclerosis Pain

While multiple sclerosis has no cure at the moment, chiropractic care can assist with pain relief and symptom management. Even though there are lots of other medical options (steroids, muscle relaxers, etc.) to help with the symptoms of multiple sclerosis, Bentonville chiropractic care is a form of pain management that is growing in popularity because it is drug-free and has no negative side effects. It is also incredibly effective, both short-term and long-term.

Chiropractic adjustments from Dr. Tom Niemela helps those with MS because they allow nerves and neurological pathways to be more efficient. One of the tenets of multiple sclerosis is nerve interference that develops and worsens over time, causing those with MS to deal with slower communication between the brain and the rest of the body. This leads to health problems, sickness, and general body dysfunction.

When chiropractic care is utilized by those with MS, individuals experience less pain, higher activity levels, an overall reduction of MS symptoms, and a better quality of life.

Even though chiropractic care doesn’t seem like a direct link as a solution to managing multiple sclerosis symptoms, studies show that it’s worth being under chiropractic care to help manage MS. One individual who suffered from multiple sclerosis began chiropractic care. Within just 4 months, she noticed an improvement: no symptoms of multiple sclerosis were present at all. Even as the 46-year-old woman went in for an MRI, there were no new lesions present and she saw a reduction in the intensity of original lesions. The woman stayed under chiropractic care for at least a year and at the end of year, there were still no new lesions that showed up, and there was a continued reduction in the intensity of prior lesions.
