Also, has anyone had this and felt no effect whatsoever?
I'm going to copy and paste what I posted in a similar thread on the chiro forum.
Not sure if UCC benefits could be specifically pinned down to MS issues in the first place. I find the whole UCC/MS connection intriguing - mainly because I know I have UCC issues ALONG with my MS, proven by my C-spine MRI. I plan to pursue UCC treatment, because all these years I've always assumed that most of my problems were due to whiplash-type injuries anyway since they're so related to position and movement. In fact, I've had relief from one MS-y type symptom by going to a general chiropractor many years ago.
In my case, however, it would be impossible to separate the symptoms of MS from UCC injury and from HNPP (hereditary peripheral neuropathy). I assume it would be the same for others. MS itself is an ever-changing medical condition, and we all seem to be blessed with an infernal amount of other medical conditions along with it.
There are a few comments in the CCVBP/CCSVI thread on the CCSVI Forum
but you may not get many replies here in General Forum, because many of those posting in that thread refuse to venture out of CCSVI Land. Well, except for civickiller & fee002/sunnee/fee001.
I hope to get UCC treatment soon (see my story on p. 111-112 of that thread), and I'm really anxious to post my experiences about it. I've been charting my 30+ symptoms daily for about 7 years, so that may help me identify any changes one way or another. BTW, since my dx 8 yrs ago I've always noted that I can't pin a single symptom directly to MS, but for 38 yrs I HAVE been blaming them on my neck problems.
So, I'm currently reading Upright Doc's book.
