Patient with Multiple Sclerosis Improves: A Case Study & Results
2.5 million people around the world suffer from Multiple Sclerosis & more than 400,000 of those people are in the United States. Each week about 200 new cases are diagnosed in the US alone.
MS is a progressive & chronic disease involving damage to the sheaths of nerve cells in the brain and spinal cord, whose symptoms may include impairment of speech, muscular coordination, blurred vision, numbness, and severe fatigue.
Here is a recent study of a patient with multiple sclerosis that will interest you.
A Case Study & Results:
A 58-year-old female confined to a wheel chair presented for integrative care with a diagnosis of multiple sclerosis. An anteriorposterior lower cervical x-ray displayed 16.2mm left head translation (ideal is 0mm). Paraspinal thermography revealed a significant asymmetry in the cervical region with moderate asymmetry at C1 and C5 and severe asymmetry at C2-C4. Spirometry revealed a peak expiratory lung flow volume of 200 L/min and a forced expiratory lung volume of 1.48 L. Grip strength assessment revealed a maximum left-hand grip strength of 2.8 lbs and a maximum right-hand grip strength of 3.0 lbs.
Intervention & Outcome:
The patient received integrative technique protocols. Follow-up examination revealed that the patient achieved a correction of left head translation of 17.0mm from 16.2mm to -0.8mm; an improvement in peak expiratory flow volume of 27 L/min from 200 L/min to 227 L/min; an improvement in forced expiratory lung volume of 0.18 L from 1.48 L to 1.66 L; an improvement in left-hand grip strength of 9.2 lbs from 2.8 lbs to 12 lbs and in right-hand grip strength of 5 lbs from 3.0 lbs to 8.0 lbs.
Improvements in Lung Function, Grip Strength and Dysautonomia
Reducing the nerve interference in the spine improved posture with an improvement in respiratory function, dysautonomia, and grip strength.
Dr. Aristotle’s Comment:
The integration of Eastern and Western healing techniques is a powerful approach. When you also reduce nerve interference you allow your body to participate in the healing response.
This was one of the key elements in my own healing from total paralysis in a wheelchair to walking again. “The power that made the body, heals the body.”
