Multiple Sclerosis

Can Upper Cervical Care Help My Multiple Sclerosis?

Multiple Sclerosis (MS) is one of the scariest neurological conditions known to humankind. Like a frayed wire, MS is characterised by damage to the central nervous system that causes it to misfire. This can result in any number of symptoms from abnormal body sensation to twitches to partial or complete paralysis. In Australia, there are 23,000 people living with MS.

Many of these people do live extraordinary and fulfilling lives despite the challenges. Still, if these is any one unsettling aspect about multiple sclerosis is the unknown how and when the symptoms will progress.

One of the few things known about MS is that the immune system is somehow involved. The medical approach, thus, is to suppress the immune system in order to delay progression of the condition.

A Natural Solution – The Role of the Upper Neck in Multiple Sclerosis

To this date, the question of why the body’s own immune system attacks the nervous system remains unanswered. However, state of the art research on the circulation of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) may be the key to unlocking the secrets of MS. CSF is like a flowing river that provides nutrients to the brain itself. Like a river, it can also become polluted if it does not drain properly. In this type of environment, the body’s immune system cannot tell the difference between abnormal cells and healthy cells, thus attacks everything without discrimination.

The answer to the question – why would CSF not circulate freely? – lies in an unexpected place: the upper neck.

Landmark research by Dr Scott Rosa and others is demonstrating that when a person has a misalignment of the top vertebra in your spine – called C1 or the atlas – it prohibits the normal circulation and drainage of CSF. However, when that same individual has the misalignment of that C1 vertebra corrected, there is a marked improvement in not just the flow of CSF but of the myriad symptoms of multiple sclerosis also!

These finding were corroborated by Italian researcher who discovered a 70% improvement in MS symptoms who received Atlas Specific or Upper Cervical Care.

Have You Tried Upper Cervical Care to Help Your Multiple Sclerosis?

Although Upper Cervical Specific Care is not a cure for MS, these astonishing results suggest that proper alignment of the atlas and upper neck is of critical importance in managing, potentially even reversing Multiple Sclerosis.

Dr Jeffrey Hannah is currently the only chiropractor in Brisbane who specialises in Upper Cervical Specific Care. Dr Hannah has completed his training in the USA and is certified in the Blair technique, a method of correcting misalignments of the upper neck without cracking or neck manipulation.

Although researchers are still many years from the cure for Multiple Sclerosis, this approach offers a unique and natural solution for relief of the symptoms of MS … and maybe even a way to reverse or at the very least delay the progression of the condition.
