Your Child and an MS Report
Every parent wants the best for their child. That desire is so deep that new parents cheer when they count ten fingers and ten toes on their newborn children. That desire never stops, and parents will do almost anything to make sure their kids grow up happy and healthy.
Unfortunately, as much as we love our kids, we just can't prevent bad things from happening to them all of the time. Most of the time those bad things happen in the form of bumps, bruises, and and scrapes. But sometimes they come in the form of a doctor reporting bad news to us about our children.
One negative report that no parent wants to hear of their child is that they have been diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis (MS). News like that has a tendency to change one's life and not for the better.
Multiple Sclerosis and Nerve Damage
So what exactly happens in multiple sclerosis?
Your nerve cells are protected by a protective covering called the Myelin Sheath in multiple sclerosis that myelin sheath has been damaged. That nerve damage causes signals in your body to slow down or stop, and that means communication between your brain and your body is hindered.
It is believed that an autoimmune reaction is part of the problem when it comes to multiple sclerosis. Whereas your body begins to attack the myelin sheath and destroy it. But what is leading to the autoimmune reaction in the first place? This is the question that continues to challenge multiple sclerosis researchers. One of the most common theories today centers around chronic cerebrospinal venous insufficiency also known as CCSVI.
Chronic cerebrospinal venous insufficiency is a condition where people have obstructed blood flow in the veins that drain the central nervous system (the brain and spinal cord). Research indicates that CCSVI is significantly correlated with multiple sclerosis.
As a result of these venous abnormalities, the blood flow rate through the central nervous system back toward the heart may become slowed, and blood may reflux
People with CCSVI have one or more of the following blockages of the veins that drain blood from the central nervous system:
pper Cervical Care & Multiple Sclerosis
Some of the newest and most relevant research on upper cervical care has demonstrated the link between MS and the upper cervical spine. Although upper cervical care is not considered a cure for those with MS, the studies demonstrate the extreme benefits for those suffering with this debilitating neurological disease. A study published in 2005 revealed that 100% of the patients with Multiple Sclerosis had a history of upper cervical injuries whether months old or years old. Another recently published case study has shown that correction of upper neck injuries may reverse the progression of MS. Dr. Erin Elster, an upper cervical chiropractor, performed the research. Through the use of upper cervical care, Elster corrected chronic upper neck injuries in an MS patient, which may have stimulated a reversal of his MS symptoms. These results have been duplicated in upper cervical centers across the country and have shown the same promising results. Elster’s report was published in the Journal of Vertebral Subluxation Research. It stated that, “According to medical research, head and neck injuries have long been considered a cause of Multiple Sclerosis. But this is the first research to show that correction of those injuries can have dramatic effects on reversing MS.” In light of these recent reports, it is absolutely essential, if you have MS, that you have your spine and nervous system examined by an upper cervical doctor.
