      Have you tried chiropractic therapy to help your MS? Does it help ease your symptoms?

      Yes, I went to an Upper cervical chiropractor, who after several X-Rays and measurements diagnosed me with an Atlas misalignment. This was causing an inappropriate flow of spinal fluid and increased pressure on the spinal cord. Since the alignment, I’ve been feeling 100x more energy and the numbness has been disappearing as well. I highly recommend all MS patients to have their Atlas alignment checked by an Upper cervical chiropractor specialist. Any chiropractor won’t do.

      What great information, thank-you for sharing this Sofía!  I’m glad it worked so well for you, is it a painful treatment?

      Yes!! I currently am going to one and I wish I had been going for years. My vagus nerve was bunched and tight (for lack of the correct terminology) and after 3 adjustments my vertigo/dizziness subsided, my blood pressure regulated, and the faint passing out feeling has also subsided for two weeks. These symptoms had been ongoing without relief for 3 months. But I agree with the other post, not just an chiropractor will do. Even the one I go to says you have to do your research prior to picking one.

      I have been going to various chiropractors for years, ever since a fall on ice which caused sciatica. A Gonstead chiropractor fixed it as well as neuralgia a couple of years later.  My neurologist told me not to go to a chiropractor.  He is old school, but think about spinal lesions – adjustments can’t possibly be good for those.  I now use a massage recliner – it helps me much more and is safer.

      Not sure this comes under the Chiropractor category but definitely in the spiritual – holistic…I did try the Gong Bath on three occasions, only stopping because of the distance to the MS Therapy Centre I became a member of a year ago… Too far to travel and not enough raised beds if one turned up a tad late, as I cant really get down on the floor, nor would I want to…well yes I might be able to get down but would struggle more with getting back up…Below is a link to give you some Idea of what I mean…The Gong Bath is not a bath but, several drum shapes that omit various sound waves – vibrations that affect parts of the body and are said to be beneficial to MS sufferers…The sound waves are loud but not deafening, and yet at the same time very relaxing, it would be easy for one to drop off to sleep during the one hour session…

      Debi and others….

      I would absolutely recommend a session of Gong Baths…Firstly it is very relaxing and secondly after my first session we talked about the session and I told her it done something to the bottom half of my left leg, my better MS leg, a mild tingly sensation I hadn’t experience before, that I felt the gongs actually doing something…I did ask the question afterwards how long will we benefit from our session, she told me it lasts maybe one hour before wearing off, so I guess one would need several weekly sessions to really feel any long term benefit…Of course this is not, nor ever will be a cure, re, our MS symptoms…If you are into all things spiritual, I would give this is try if you can find a place that does it…and more importantly, try to find one that specifically will adapt it for people with MS…

      Jackie…

      That is really interesting, Jackie! It’s amazing they can adapt it for your specific needs. I have never heard of  Gong baths  before this.

      Debi, I have tried Shiatsu when at my previous MS Therapy Centre three years ago which was soon after diagnoses, had myself maybe four sessions, although relaxing, if I remember, my body on one occasion felt worse afterwards, although my first session my body felt better…
