Acupuncture for Multiple Sclerosis
Although acupuncture cannot cure or reverse MS, it can help in managing many of the sign and symptoms associated with it. Pain (any), numbness and tingling, muscle spasms, muscle weakness, bladder and bowel dysfunction, depression and moodiness, are only a few of the conditions acupuncture successfully improves or even resolves. There is some evidence that when acupuncture treatments were started in the early stages of the disease progression of the disease was delayed.
Your diagnosis and treatment will depend on your individual signs and symptoms, and treatment will be tailored specifically for your individual needs. During treatment, thin sterile needles are inserted into specific points on the body in order to stimulate your own ability to restore balance and optimal health. The benefits of acupuncture are accumulative and changes are reported by many in as few as 5 treatments.
One of the most promising treatment method is Scalp acupuncture, a form of acupuncture in which needles are inserted into the scalp and strongly stimulated.
