Dramatic Improvement in Symptoms Related to Multiple Sclerosis with Chiropractic Care

A case study published in the April 27, 2010 issue of the scientific periodical, the Journal of Pediatric, Maternal and Family Health, reported on a case of a fifty-one year old female with history of Multiple Sclerosis (MS) and several other conditions who was helped by chiropractic.

In the opening of the study, the authors explained Multiple Sclerosis by noting that MS is a debilitating disease characterized by recurrent or chronically progressive neurological dysfunction. According to the authors, the prevalence of MS has been estimated at 100 cases per 100,000 people.

In this case, a fifty-one year old female came to a chiropractor with a history of being diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis, gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), asthma, osteoarthritis, and scoliosis. She also had complaints of neck pain, back pain and jaw pain. She was being treated medically by her family medical doctor, a neurologist, an allergist, a rheumatologist, a gastrointestinal specialist, a cardiologist, and a dermatologist.

The chiropractic examination showed postural abnormalities, asymmetry and muscular imbalance. With the addition of spinal x-rays, the presence of vertebral subluxations was noted, and a course of specific adjustments was initiated. Chiropractic care started with 3 times per week for 4 months and 2 times per week for 4 months, followed by 1 time per week thereafter.

The results in this case documented that after approximately 12 visits, the woman reported improvement in pain levels throughout her body, as well as better mobility, increased lung capacity, and she was able to increase her activities as well.

Follow up examinations also showed improvement in all measurements compared to the initial examination and x-ray findings. As care continued, the woman was able to drastically reduce her asthma medication and eventually she was able to discontinue her gastroesophageal reflux medication.

In their conclusion the authors wrote, “The case of an adult female with past history of multiple sclerosis and other conditions is presented. Dramatic improvement in symptoms related to multiple sclerosis is noted following the introduction of chiropractic care concomitant with a reduction in vertebral subluxation.”

Biography of Dr. Geoffrey Tickel
Having a driven personality, Dr. Geoffrey Tickel suprised no one when he was accepted into the University of Cincinnati at the age of 14.  “When I was still very young, I realized that my purpose in life was to help others improve their level of health.  Realizing that this would take at least 7 years of university level studies to become a doctor, I decided to get a head start.” This driving purpose to help others continued to push Dr. Geoffrey through his studies, until he graduated at the top of his class from Life University, the largest chiropractic college in the world situated near Atlanta, Georgia, USA.  

As a Health Care professional, Dr. Geoffrey brings a new approach to the concept of health care.  Dr. Geoffrey sees himself foremost as a teacher, “People do not realize how powerful their bodies are, and how important the nervous system is to its proper functioning.”  In the last 30 years, science has been discovering just how important the nervous system is.  It controls all other system of the body including, the immune system, the endocrine system, the musclular system, the digestive system, everything.  “By improving nervous system functioning, we are changing physiology, and people are responding.”
