7-04 Multiple Sclerosis (M.S.) Solutions with Complementary Medicine and Integrative Manual Therapy Approaches
A variety of studies show the benefits of Complementary and Alternative Medicine (CAM), with people with Multiple Sclerosis and other neurodegenerative disorders.
These approaches include, Integrative Manual Therapy, Physical Therapy, Massage Therapy, Reflexology, Acupuncture, Reiki, Music Therapy, Yoga, Exercises and activities designed to increase quality of life.
Sixteen people with multiple sclerosis (MS) said, "physical therapy, counseling, nutrition, and massage were the most frequently used alternative therapies. Other therapies included acupuncture, occupational therapy, aquatic therapy, Therapeutic Touch, yoga, passive exercise, and removal of mercury alloy tooth fillings.
Almost 2/3 of the respondents reported seeking an alternative health practitioner because traditional physicians offered no cure for MS. Just under 1/3 of the respondents stated that the quality of their lives was improved by alternative therapies." (Fawcett, 1994).
