Multiple Sclerosis, MS, Extreme tiredness, Dizzy, Dizziness, Weak, Fog, Sclerosis, demyelinating, myelinMultiple sclerosis is a condition of the autoimmune system. It causes the central nervous system to begin to degenerate, leading to problems with communication between the brain and the body. The body begins to attack myelin, the fatty substance that insulates the nerve endings. When this occurs, further communication is broken down, and multiple sclerosis is the end result. No one really understands why this condition occurs.

Researching Multiple Sclerosis

The MRI was invented by Dr. Raymond Damadian. He used this machine to do some research involving eight patients that were diagnosed with multiple sclerosis. Seven of these patients recalled having some sort of previous trauma to their neck. What did this study find?

These patients had been injured up to 8 years previously, but just began showing symptoms of multiple sclerosis, such as numbness, vertigo, tingling, and migraines. The MRI showed an abnormal flow of cerebrospinal fluid to the brain. Blockages in the cervical spine canals were also present. Leaks were detected around the brain and attributed to intracranial pressure caused by this abnormal cerebrospinal fluid flow. Another observation was that the cerebrospinal fluid contained tau – antigenic proteins that may actually contribute to demyelination of axons, which is seen in patients with multiple sclerosis.

Help for Victims of Multiple Sclerosis

We have learned that multiple sclerosis does not happen over night. The results of the above test indicate that it may take as long as 8 years for symptoms to begin to appear after you have endured an injury. This means that it is vital, as soon as you are in an accident or even a trip and fall, to seek the care of a professional who can help evaluate your neck and correct any problems that may be located there. Multiple sclerosis is closely linked to the health of the upper cervical spine, neck, and brain.

Here at Scenic City Clinic of Chiropractic in Chattanooga, Tennessee, we employ a method that is gentle and precisely tailored to your specific problem. This is done through measurement and imaging to help us locate and correct the misalignment. Once corrected, this can help you to avoid future problems that may develop into multiple sclerosis. Those suffering from it now can also find a measure of relief.
