DCs Treating the Multiple Sclerosis Patient

Chiro.Org Blog: There is no cure for MS. There is only management of symptoms, and MDs typically treat with medications such as corticosteroids and interferon. In most cases there is a natural, although unpredictable, course of remissions and exacerbations. Dr. Wyatt points out that this can make it difficult to ascertain the effectiveness of any therapeutic regimen. “From the perspective of the chiropractic physician, treatment is focused on the management of the neuromusculoskeletal sequelae of the disease,” he says. “Manual therapies and rehabilitation can be quite helpful in managing those sequelae, but there is no evidence to support the idea that such therapies will alter the course of the disease.
