Abstract 


Objective: To report on positive health outcomes in a 39-year-old female 
diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis (MS) undergoing chiropractic care to 
reduce vertebral subluxation. 

Clinical Features: A 39-year-old wheelchair bound female presented with a 
20-year history of MS. Multiple brain lesions on pre-MRI confirmed the 
diagnosis. The patient’s condition was previously managed medically with 
increasing disability noted. She had multiple motor and sensory deficits, 
pain, visual loss and inability to ambulate. 

Intervention and Outcomes: The patient was examined for vertebral 
subluxation and adjusted utilizing the toggle-recoil technique based on 
findings elicited from thermographic scans revealing pattern and X-rays 
revealing C2, C3 subluxation. The adjustments were given only at the C2 
vertebral segment. The patient’s care plan was over 18-36 months. Post-MRI 
results revealed no active plaques in the brain. She experienced diminished 
MS symptomatology and functional improvement including the ability to 
ambulate. 

Conclusions: The patient responded favorably to a course of vertebral 
subluxation-based chiropractic care. More research on chiropractic and MS 
is needed.
