Who MS Effects
Anyone can be a potential candidate for Multiple Sclerosis (MS). Actually, you can contract this disease of the nervous system at any age. But people between the ages of 15 and 60 are diagnosed more often, and people between the ages of 20 and 50 are diagnosed the most often.
When a person experiences Demyelination and recurring gliosis that causes plaquing in the white matter of the brain, optic nerves, and spinal nerves. Those who suffer from MS may experience periods of regression, and then periods when their condition goes into remission. Those times of regression may include the following symptoms.
Symptoms of Multiple Sclerosis
- Weakness in one or more limbs
- Hypesthesia (numbness) or tingling in the extremeties
- Urinary Dysfunction
- Neuromuscular Impairments
- Visual Disturbances
- Emotional Problems
- Musculoskeletal Dysfunction
- Cognitive dysfunction
- Dysarthria (Scanning speech)
When Multiple Sclerosis Manifests Itself
Those diagnosed with MS will suffer bouts of one or more of these symptoms. It is likely however that this disease of the nervous system manifests itself in a person’s body that it will, at some point, cause permanent damage.
So, that’s the bad news. The good news is that a diagnosis of Multiple Sclerosis doesn’t have to be the hopeless sentence you might think it is. You can take back control of your like by taking control over how your body functions.
Now, that’s going to mean making some difficult decisions, but they will benefit you in the long run. The first one is to make an appointment with an upper cervical chiropractor. They will examine your neck for any misalignments in your upper cervical spine (the top two vertebrae in your neck).
When those two vertebrae become misaligned by only ¼ of a millimeter, it’s possible for the entire body to become misaligned. That misalignment hinders communication between the brain and the body, and that miscommunication can cause all sorts of problems, including changes in blood, cerebral spinal fluid and nerve flow that may influence the Demyelination and recurring gliosis. The only way to reverse that process is when an upper cervical chiropractor realigns your upper cervical spine.
