Upper Cervical Chiropractors do something unique. They precisely correct the top two vertebrae in the neck to allow the central nervous system to function at its optimum. For years there have been reports of cases with multiple sclerosis improving their quality of life after seeking the care of an Upper Cervical Doctor.
Now there is scientific data that shows that Multiple Sclerosis improvement isn't just a testimony. Medical researchers in Italy Dr. Mandolesi S, et al. in concert with Upper Cervical Health Centers of America, Founded by Drs. Ray Drury and Thad Vuagniaux, just published a study that shows preliminary data that Upper Cervical Corrections indeed help patients with MS.
The medical researchers even go a step further stating that "We believe that the Upper Cervical correction on C1-C2 could be the main non-invasive treatment of the CCSVI mechanical type in patients with MS"
Upper Cervical Chiropractic has been helping people with a plethora of conditions because it is based on a very simple premise. The nerve system is what underlies ALL functions in the body. Based on this simple premise, when the upper cervical spine is misaligned from injury, it puts dural pressure on the brain stem and associated spinal nerves decreasing overall body function.
Because of this global effect on the body, when the upper cervical spine is corrected, the increased functionality is the result. Upper Cervical Care is NOT a treatment. It's aim is to restore normal function and the result is healing. Our current system of health care treats symptoms, effects, and as a result, it is always one step behind.
You cannot get someone who is sick well by treating effects. You must do things that allow the body to function better. You must give it the right nutrition, the right amount of rest, and your Nervous system must be functioning at its optimum. To learn more about Upper Cervical Care
In Los Angeles, our office has been successful in helping numerous cases with Multiple Sclerosis. AS the recent research suggests, MS may have its roots in chronic venous cerebral-spinal insufficiency (ccsvi), which is maybe caused by the Upper Cervical Atlas subluxation complex. When biomechanical abnormalities exist in the upper neck it causes a chain reaction of neurological deficits throughout the body. One of them being CCSVI in MS.
We write these blogs to bring awareness to what we feel is the most under-recognized system of health care in our country-Upper Cervical Chiropractic. While it is not a cure-all, Upper cervical care is highly effective at helping a high percentage of people with a broad spectrum of health problems. WE hope that the information in this blog will help a friend, a family member or a loved one.
We always close with -"Nature needs no help just no interference." The body was designed to heal and if it is sick it is the result of a block or interference to normal function.
