Multiple sclerosis is a painful condition that affects millions of Americans and even more across the globe. Scientists and doctors are working together to determine a final solution for those who suffer from MS but have still found no cure. As for now, there are only treatments available that can help ease the pain of MS symptoms. Massage is a method often overlooked as a modern medical practice, yet has been used for thousands of years as a treatment for MS, even before it was diagnosed and recognized as a curable state.
Symptoms of MS
Symptoms of MS are as wide-ranged as the people who suffer from it, but there are some common signs which define the illness. Loss of coordinated muscle skills is essentially what happens. People describe the symptoms differently, for some it's a loss of balance, for others, it's a loss of feeling in body extremities. Some people can only say their hand doesn't “work” some days, others feel extreme stiffness and joint pain throughout the days.
Massage treatment is admittedly a temporary fix, but it does produce recognized results among people who suffer from MS. Massage helps mitigate the tired soreness that comes with MS, and it helps with blood flow to bring feeling back to numb body parts. Although massage can't bring a magical cure and end MS altogether, it's a worthwhile treatment proven to relieve the discomfort known to accompany the damage caused by Multiple sclerosis and relieve the patient from ongoing pain naturally, without the use of drugs or toxins.
