This is where I get confused when Dr.s and Neuro's talk about the pain experiences in MS. It seems from what I understand, the damage done to the nerves within the brain, the axons and the nerve ends in 'MS' are what causes the pain sensation.
If the axon is damaged how does one experience pain? I think this explanation lacks any credibility.
If that is the case are there adjustments that would help?
Most adjustment therapy is geared to address the symptom which is secondary rather than the primary cause and as such it is utterly futile.
I get told things like the nerves aren't sending correct signals so the mind interprets this as pain.
There doesn't seem to be anyway that an adjustment would help with type of pain.
I can see that identifying what is causing the pain by trying adjustment would be of use, the challenge as you say is whether the adjustment is correct for the problem and or the Practitioner is competent in the required adjustment.
The ultimate dilemma.
Is there testing of nerves that is appropriate to give an understanding of nerve conduction that will give indication of outcome rather than a hit and miss adjustment process, that tends to have repeats and ongoing expense?
I think this business of testing the axons is barking up the wrong tree and if discovered no adjustment is going to be apt.
How do we find out what is going on in MS so that we can have quality of life?
My heart aches that I should open a pandoras box right around the world and be too far to help many people. It needs the personal consultation which is presently not possible.
The other challenge is the financial cost of all these experiments as they will be like the icicle theory of MS we spoke of before. I assume that if we are in the pigeon hole of 'MS' or similar diseases we are in the too hard basket or the basket the Government National Health Help bypasses.
So we have to finance this experiment by selling everything we have, with no guarantee of benefit, if you get my drift?
If medicine was not based around grand theft it would be easy for governments to afford it. Can you imagine $40,000 per year per patient. Enough to bankrupt the richest countries.
