Multiple Sclerosis Treatment involving Spine Alignment



Drugs and surgery are the only treatments doctors offer for multiple sclerosis (MS), but they rarely slow down the disease, to say nothing of reversing it. So, when we heard about a chiropractic procedure that may send MS into remission, we had to check it out.

Multiple sclerosis is a complex disorder with no known origin, which is why selected treatments, including chiropractic adjustments, may work for some people but not for others. That said, Italian researchers have found a significant correlation between trauma (especially to the head) and the aggravation of MS symptoms.

A recent study published in the Journal of Vertebral Subluxation seems to corroborate this research. According to Dr. Erin Elster, over 30 of her MS patients experienced a reversal of symptoms after she corrected the alignment of their upper neck vertebrae. She claims the procedure re-establishes a clear nerve path from the brain to the spinal cord, supposedly making neural transmissions direct and more complete.

MS is spreading rapidly with no relief in sight, despite the fact that millions of dollars are poured into mainstream research. To provide you with all the treatment options, the HSI research team is working on a special report about alternative therapies for MS. But since it’s such a debilitating disease, we wanted to keep you posted on the latest developments. We’ll continue to send you updates as we uncover new treatments.
