FORT WORTH, Texas, Jan. 13, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Back to Health Family Chiropractic in Fort Worth, TX announced that the practice has had significant success using chiropractic care to help manage and significantly lessen the symptoms of multiple sclerosis (MS). To better educate individuals about the benefits of spinal adjustments, the practice is offering a free video series on its website, http://backtohealthtexas.com. The videos include testimonials from patients about how the ways spinal adjustments have helped alleviate their symptoms including tingling, muscle weakness, numbness and back pain.
Ft. Worth chiropractor Dr. Chris Michlin is expanding access to free online information about the benefits of chiropractic care for MS symptoms.
"Chiropractic care is often an effective alternative to or partner with medication in the treatment of MS," said Dr. Michlin. "Our online video series is designed to educate patients and their families about how spinal adjustments work and why they can make a difference for managing MS."
While there is no currently known cure for MS, traditional medical treatments rely on medication to manage MS symptoms, reduce the frequency of attacks and modify the disease's course. According to Dr. Michlin, many patients and their families wonder if medication is really the best or only treatment option.
Dr. Michlin cautions that not all online information is up-to-date or even accurate. Consequently, many patients are left feeling overwhelmed and wondering if natural treatments are an effective alternative to medication.
"Our bodies can heal if we give them the chance," said Dr. Michlin. "However, there is a lot of misinformation online about the benefits of different MS treatments. Our new video series is designed to help clear up this misinformation and educate patients about the difference that chiropractic care can truly make for the body and overall health."
According to a recent research study, the presence of excessive intracranial cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) may be linked to the occurrence of MS lesions in a patient's brain. A traumatic injury to the spinal column (specifically a CAD or "Whiplash" type of injury) can trigger the buildup of CSF. Spinal adjustments, including Atlas Orthogonal adjustments, may help reduce this fluid buildup while also supporting whole body health.
Dr. Michlin's MS patients say spinal adjustments, in combination with a healthy diet, supplements and exercise, have helped them successfully manage and alleviate their symptoms. Now, these patients are sharing their stories through the practice's online video series.
"Five months ago I was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis at the age of 36," says MS patient Janet, in a website video. "I have been treated by Dr. Michlin for about six weeks now. The symptoms I have had in the past – numbness, tingling, and muscle weakness – have disappeared almost completely."

The Ft. Worth chiropractor also provides treatment for chronic back pain, neck pain and headaches.
