Chiropractic Care for Multiple Sclerosis

The central nervous system is responsible for controlling all of our body’s movements, processes, and functions. It plays a part in our muscle function, digestive health, and even optic nerve function.  For this reason, if there is a problem within our body, it can usually be traced back to the central nervous system.  Multiple Sclerosis is no different.  Multiple Sclerosis, or MS, is a disease that affects the central nervous system itself. Because the entire nervous system is so interconnected to other parts of the body, MS compromises many of our body’s other systems as well.  For example, those with MS develop muscle weakness and usually have trouble walking over time. They may also complain of blurry vision, numbness of the limbs, muscle spasms, or even loss of bladder control.  But MS doesn’t have to take over your life. Trust that you can continue to live life to the fullest even after an MS diagnosis. Begin with a visit to Lithia Springs Chiropractor Dr. Ronnie Bolar. He and his team will complete a full neurological assessment and he will provide gentle, specific chiropractic adjustments to trouble areas to improve your overall body function and reduce the severity and onset of MS symptoms.

Causes of Multiple Sclerosis

Multiple Sclerosis is caused when the body begins attacking myelin, a necessary fatty substance that is responsible for helping send messages to and from the brain.  When the body begins attacking the myelin, it leaves behind scar tissue and damaged nerves.  These damaged nerves don’t function as they should, thus affecting how the body functions.  Some may not see symptoms of MS for years, while others may notice signs and related problems right away.  The progression of the disease is different for everyone, but there are natural and […]

CHIROPRACTIC AND WELLNESS

For over 100 years Doctors of Chiropractic have said that regular chiropractic care boosts the bodies ability to heal and repair itself, while our detracters have continued to say that this tenent of chiropractic can not be proven. The advancement of modern technologies has now caught up with Chiropractic Philosophy with the recent advent of study in the area of genetics. Today we are able to measure the various enzymes that are related to the bodies natural process of regeneration. One particular enzyme, thiol, has been identified as a key indication of the bodies rate of regeneration. If your body is regenerating slower you will have lower serum thiol and you are more likely to suffer from chronic disease and degeneration, whereas if your body is regenerating faster you will have higher serum thiol and you are more like to experience vitality and you bodies true potential for health. The following study looks at various groups of people including those with active diseases, those receiving short term chiropractic care, and those receiving long term wellness chiropractic care and shows the corresponding levels of serum thiol for the various groups. This study difinitively shows the benefits of chiropractic wellness care in terms of your bodies regenerative capacity.

Surrogate Indication of DNA Repair in Serum After Long Term Chiropractic Intervention – A Retrospective Study

ABSTRACT:

Objective: To assess the effects of short-term and long-term chiropractic care on serum thiol levels in asymptomatic subjects.

Summary of background data: Serum thiols are a measure of human health status. It is a surrogate estimate of DNA repair enzyme activity, most notably poly ADP – ribose polymerase or PARP.

While it is suggested that chiropractic care improves general health, the effect of chiropractic care on serum thiol levels has not been investigated.

Methods: A case controlled retrospective analysis. Serum thiol […]
