I think you are on the right track
Most urbanised people have neck and body asymmetries. (this is an extensive topic on its own).
Neck asymmetry worsens with dental interferences of many different types. (another extensive topic).
Such asymmetries may be giving no pain or discomfort but if injured such as a whiplash injury the neck cannot possibly heal as it is subjected to movement during our swallowing and breathing in spite of wearing neck collars (which end up being even more harmful where injury is light to moderate, as they take away the potential for any exercise of the supporting neck muscles)
Now the whiplash injury does not heal without correcting the teeth and the jaw - a previously benign problem becomes much more complex to treat.
The neck plays a crucial roll in the breathing and swallowing mechanism in the oxygenation, blood flow and CSF flow to the head.
Therefore a neck injury of any type is not conducive to a healthy system and is a barrier to recovery from MS which may have its origins from other Cranio mandibular and skeletal asymmetries.
This is a simplified explanation of very complex phenomenon.
