Toggle-Recoil Technique was used as the treatment method in all cases. Twenty petient files in which multiple sclerosis was the chief complaint were identified. Of these, four cases met the inclusion criteria. Three of the four cases reported a significant trauma to the spine preceded the diagnosis. All subjects reported outcomes indicating improvement functional health status and quality of life.
