Chiropractic therapy is a common form of treatment to try and help ease some of the physical symptoms associated with multiple sclerosis. According to the Multiple Sclerosis Society, the goal of chiropractic therapy is to restore normal function to the patient’s joints, focusing particularly on the vertebrae and the pelvis.
As with all medical treatment methods, it’s important to find the right practitioner. Look for a chiropractor who’s board-certified. It’s also best to avoid treatment when you’re in a flare — unless otherwise recommended by your doctor.
