The Causes of MS

The research, as published on PubMed, found that if one of the bones in the upper cervical spine was misaligned it could put pressure on the veins in front of the bone and cause venous congestion (lack of venous blood drainage) from the brain causing MS and related symptoms. Upper cervical chiropractic corrections to remove the venous blockage resulted in improved function in multiple areas of the body. 77 MS patients in the study were followed for the first six weeks of care only. The results surprised everyone, even the chiropractors. This study was covered FOX News in the U.S. The percentage of patients that noticed specific areas of improvement:

This was not the first time research has been done with medical doctors doing the testing and upper cervical chiropractors performing the care. In 2007 Dr. George Bakris, director of the Hypertension Center at the University of Chicago Medical Center, and Dr. Bruce Bell, a family practitioner, collaborated in a study that showed a one-time upper cervical adjustment of a misaligned Atlas, the first bone in the neck, performed by the upper cervical doctor, Dr. Marshall Dickholtz, reduced blood pressure by an average of 17 points. “This procedure (an upper cervical adjustment) has the effect of not one, but two blood pressure medications given in combination, and it seems to be adverse-event free. We saw no side effects,” Dr. Bakris told the Chicago Tribune and WebMD.
