Chiropractic Care Reduces Seizures

calm child adjustmentMy name is Claudio, I’m Jacob’s dad. When Jacob was about 5 years old we noticed he started having facial twitching and body jerks. After numerous visits to Children’s Hospital he was diagnosed with epilepsy. He was then put on medication which did nothing but sedate him and the seizures still came through. When we upped the dose the 4th time he had a full blown Grand Mal seizure. That was the worst experience that I’ve ever had. During the weaning process my wife found information about chiropractic helping with seizures. After the first couple adjustments we noticed that Jacob began to sleep a lot better and would wake up rested. Before it seemed that the seizures would wake him up. I’m happy to say that they have dropped down to more than half that and our best day so far has been 2 seizures in one day. I am so grateful to Innate for helping Jacob get off the meds and be as healthy as he can be.

 A Little More Insight

Using The Insight we measured and assessed Jacob’s nervous system function and it was chaos. Here’s his first scan…colorful, asymmetrical and completely disorganized.

Our job was simple, adjust his spine and nervous system to restore proper communication between his brain and body. Two months into his care, Jacob showed tremendous progress. His seizure activity had dropped dramatically. He started by cutting the number of seizures in half. And most recently he’s been consistently experiencing days of less than 10 seizures per day! Here’s his most recent scan. What you’ll notice is increased balance, more white bars (those are the normal bars)

If you’re reading this with a bit of hesitation, we get it. Most people don’t think chiropractic care can help with seizures. Let’s be honest, most people don’t think that kids even go to chiropractors. Here at Innate Family Chiropractic, we specialize in Pediatric Chiropractic.

The Insight scans you saw above are completely non-invasive and radiation-free, making them essential for pediatric practice. As pediatric chiropractors we have one goal, find the subluxation (interference to the nervous system) and restore communication between the brain and body. In the case of seizures that brain body connection is essential!

If you’re child is suffering from seizures, consider chiropractic care. In our practice, it starts with a simple scan. From there, we will let you know our honest recommendation about how chiropractic care can help your child.
