Balance and Coordination Problems? Natural Relief for Multiple Sclerosis Symptoms found in Renton, WA

Balance and Coordination Problems? Natural Relief for Multiple Sclerosis Symptoms found in Renton, WA

Do You Feel Unstable?

Movement problems such as problems with balance and coordination are a hallmark of Multiple Sclerosis. Impaired nerve conduction means muscles are not behaving the way they used to.

People may feel suddenly weak in one limb or they may find objects slipping easily out of their hands. If there’s damage to the cerebellum, the part of the brain that controls balance, people might also be unsteady on their feet and prone to falling.

Upper neck Researcher Dr. Erin Elster found that over 90% of patients diagnosed with MS had experienced at least one significant head or neck trauma prior to the onset of their symptoms.

These accidents and injuries can lead to a twisting and turning of the bones in the upper neck and change the way the head is positioned. Even a small change in the position of the head initiates a reflex in the brain in order to keep the eyes and ears level. This righting reflex causes the posture of the body to shift and change, leading to a tilting in the shoulders, the hips and eventually imbalances all the way down to the legs. These body imbalances cause significant changes in the way your body distributes your weight when you stand and walk.

The NUCCA Difference: Natural Relief for Multiple Sclerosis Symptoms

A gentle correction of the original misalignment in the upper neck restores proper head position leading to positive changes in posture throughout the entire body.

Restoring the body to a balanced position is key to improving standing and walking in multiple sclerosis and other chronic conditions.

In the same study conducted by Dr. Elster with MS patients she found that over 90% of the patients receiving upper cervical chiropractic care responded with significant symptomatic improvement and no further disease progression over a 5 year period.

Natural relief for multiple sclerosis symptoms is possible.

Are you tired of falling?  Do you live in fear of staircases and other unstable surfaces?

Then It’s time for you to have your upper neck thoroughly evaluated with the NUCCA protocol.
