Re: New-Family Doctor thinks I have MS
I also see a sign where I go for facials, it is a medical spa in NYC- which has a list of conditions which should not be treated. MS is on the list.
When I first went there, 6+ years ago, I asked why that was...and argued that massage is supposed to be "relaxing" and help with the stress. The answer I was given is that anything which stimulates the nerves can be harmful to the MSer due to the manipulation of the spinal cord.
I verified this with my neurologist who then gave me tons of paperwork on why both massage and chiropractic are to be avoided...
