Progressive MS

I was diagnosed with full blown progressive MS (multiple sclerosis). I was not able to walk and often I had to use a wheelchair or a cane. I had a loss of feeling and weakness of the entire left side of my body. I had suffered with constant fatigue, constant aching, insomnia and daily migraines. Between being wheelchair bound and the debilitating migraines I did not have much of a life. I had visited no less than six medical doctors who told me that I had to live with the MS because there was only so much that could be done and I should learn to live with the pain and disability. At one time I was on up to twelve different medications per day. When you are suffering like I was, you are always looking for new research and hoping that something will come up that you haven’t tried. Chiropractic is one of those things that I had not tried. After a year of adjustments there were no signs of MS at all. No more wheelchair or pain. I can even run normally. I now have feeling in my left foot and hand and I sleep better and remember things. My cognitive abilities have actually improved. I rarely get migraines at all. I actually have a life now. This year’s medical testing was the best ever. My neurosurgeon said that he couldn’t believe that I was the same person who rolled into his office in a wheelchair one year ago. He was astonished that there was no gait problem at all, nothing. He said that he was going to report this to the MS society because if he did not know better and had not gone through all my tests himself, he would swear I was misdiagnosed with MS. If anybody is going to consider chiropractic care, don’t wait. You waste precious time in life if you wait. If I had found my chiropractor earlier I truly believe I wouldn’t have gone through all the disability and suffering. Chiropractic just makes sense; believe me I know it works.
