Multiple Sclerosis? ... Parkinson's? ... Upper Cervical Care?
by Dr. Davis
Very interesting research on the correlation between upper neck injuries from head traumas and the onset of neurological disorders like Multiple Sclerosis and Parkinson’s Disease exists in the literature. “While the link between head trauma and the later development of Parkinson’s disease (PD) or Multiple Sclerosis (MS) remains controversial, many PD and MS researchers have confirmed the connection.” (Elster) “In a discussion regarding the possible role of trauma in the development of MS, Dr. Charles Poser notes that “in some patients with MS, certain kinds of trauma (to the brain and/or spinal cord, including whiplash injuries) may act as a trigger at some time for the appearance of new or recurrent symptoms.”
With new research coming out related to changes in venous flow as a result of an upper cervical misalignment and the research coming out of Italy regarding surgical procedures that open up veins from the brain to the body and the remissions of MS in many patients with that procedure…more and more light is being shed on the correlation between MS and Upper Cervical Misalignments and how correcting these upper neck misalignments with upper cervical care is logical and explains the results that Dr. Elster and so many other upper cervical specialists have seen in their offices for years.
Italian MS Researcher Dr. Paulo Zamboni found that more than 90% of people with MS have some sort of malformation or blockage in the veins that drain blood from the brain. In the Elster study she found that over 90 % of the patients in her care responded with significant symptomatic improvement and no further disease progression during the time of monitoring which was 1-5 years. She also found that over 90% of the patients diagnosed with MS had experienced at least one significant head or neck trauma prior to the onset of their symptoms.
Who do you know that has been diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis or Parkinson’s Disease? Do they have a history of head or neck trauma? If so get them checked by a trained upper cervical specialist as soon as possible.
