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.
Safety and effectiveness
Although chiropractic therapy is not a cure for the disease, evidence suggests that it may be the most effective for easing lower back pain. Therefore any patient experiencing lower back pain may be referred to a chiropractor after a discussion with their physician. Although this form of therapy may provide relief for lower back pain, it will not alter nor slow the course of the disease.
