Multiple Sclerosis Symptoms, Triggers, and Treatment

Multiple Sclerosis, MS, Immune System, Nerve Damage, Nervous SystemAs a person grows, matures, and ages, many physical changes take place. Most of these are natural changes and are designed to cleanse the body, fight infection, or mature into adulthood. However, some changes are not natural and could indicate the onset of disease. How can you know the difference?

We are going to discuss some of the changes that the body goes through when multiple sclerosis is setting in. They are certainly symptoms that should not be considered normal. After we recount the symptoms, we will look into multiple sclerosis attacks, and take a look at a natural treatment option.

Triggers of Multiple Sclerosis

One misconception about multiple sclerosis is that patients suffer from debilitating conditions 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. While symptoms may worsen for days or even weeks at a time, there are also periods of respite where the patient experiences temporary relief. This is the case for about 85% of patients. For many, keeping a log of what triggers an attack is a way to try and reduce the rate of progression.

Another option you should look into is upper cervical chiropractic care. C1 and C2 misalignment can cause pressure on the brainstem and miscommunication throughout the body. Everything from proper blood flow to the brain to the flow of cerebrospinal fluid is affected. Dr. Kerry Johnson, an upper cervical chiropractor in Apple Valley, Minnesota, will be happy to examine your upper cervical spine for misalignments. Then a treatment program can be developed that may reduce the symptoms of your multiple sclerosis significantly.
