How Chiropractic Care for MS Can Make a Difference

3

 

A Multiple Sclerosis (MS) diagnosis can be scary and overwhelming. At Back To Health Family Chiropractic, Fort Worth chiropractor Dr. Michlin is here to help. Dr. Michlin provides comprehensive, holistic care that supports whole body health from within. This approach can help patients eliminate or better manage their symptoms and improve their overall quality of life by addressing nerve interference.

Here’s what you need to know:

  1. Atlas orthogonal care addresses nervous system interference.
    A misalignment in the atlas vertebra (the top of the cervical chain) can impact the brain’s ability to effectively send and receive messages. Atlas adjustments help to bring correct alignment back to the cervical spine, which reduces nervous system interference.
  2. Impingement at the brain stem can block cerebral spinal fluid flow.
    A 2011 study conducted by FONAR found that impingement at the brain stem may impact cerebral spinal fluid flow. Atlas adjustments may help to improve this flow in patients medically diagnosed with MS.
  3. Customized care makes a difference 
    Dr. Michlin works closely with each patient to design a customized care program that addresses their specific wellness needs. At Back To Health Family Chiropractic, we recognize that each patient is different and faces unique health concerns. Our customized approach can integrate nutritional counseling and wellness care to enhance a patient’s whole body health from within.

How Fort Worth Chiropractor Address Scoliosis

Has your child recently been diagnosed with scoliosis? A scoliosis diagnosis can be both overwhelming and scary. Curves that measure over 25 degrees may progress into adulthood, impacting your child’s quality of life and health. Scoliosis may also cause unexpected and debilitating side effects, like severe headaches. As a parent, you want the best for your child, and it’s natural to worry about which scoliosis treatment will be most effective for your child’s needs.

At Back To Health Family Chiropractic, Fort Worth chiropractor Dr. Chris Michlin has helped families just like yours navigate scoliosis diagnosis and treatment.

Why Traditional Bracing May Not Be Effective for Scoliosis Treatment

Scoliosis treatment typically involves a full metal brace to correct spinal curvature. Unfortunately, this treatment approach is not always the most effective option. Bracing is designed to halt curve progression. However, hard braces have a number of downsides, including the loss of muscular strength and joint stiffening. A scoliosis brace can also stress the ribs and constrict breathing and bone growth.

Scoliosis and Chiropractic Care: What You Need to Know

Children who are at a high risk for curve progression based on their age, skeletal maturity and curve measurement at diagnosis may benefit from a combination of chiropractic care that integrates Atlas Orthogonal adjustments and full spine care. Benefits to this approach include the possibility of curve reduction or prevention of further curvature, as well as relief from secondary scoliosis symptoms, such as headaches and back pain.

Dr. Michlin is the only Board Certified Atlas Orthogonist in North Texas. Scoliosis specialists have flown in from New York to share their patients with Dr. Michlin, because the benefits from the Atlas Orthogonal care can be so dramatic.

Scoliosis success stories from Dr. Michlin’s patients speak for themselves:

“Julia is an eight-year girl who has scoliosis. By wearing a soft scoliosis brace and receiving atlas adjustments, Julia’s spinal curvature had a 17-degree reduction in less than seven months.”

“Our 12-year-old daughter Alison had been suffering from headaches since she was 8 years old. The headaches were getting progressively worse as the years went by until she was diagnosed with scoliosis. From the moment we met Dr. Michlin, we knew in our hearts that our daughter’s pain and suffering will finally come to an end. Under Dr. Michlin’s care, Alison began to feel better and better every day. Today she is headache-free with lots of energy.”

Our Fort Worth chiropractor understands that every scoliosis case is unique and will work closely with your family to find the right treatment for your child’s needs.
