Chiropractic Care Relaxes Seizure Symptoms in Seal Beach
Are you suffering from epileptic seizures and wanting to do something about it once-and-for-all?
If you answered yes, perhaps it’s good news to hear that you can experience comprehensive relief of your seizure symptoms-- without the hassle and potentially-hazardous side effects of prescription drugs and otherwise-traditional treatments.
That’s because chiropractic care has been found in connection with significant symptom relief, and a recent case report from 2010 helped to show that.
The case report looked to describe the chiropractic effectiveness of upper cervical techniques for a 25-year-old woman clinically diagnosed with juvenile myoclonic epilepsy (JME).
Details of the 25-year-old study participant included her aforementioned history of JME, which had been diagnosed when she was just 14 years old; her seizure episodes started not long after serious trauma to the area of her cervical spine and the beginning of menstruation.
Intervention results showed that following gathering of case history and a physical evaluation, the patient was administered high-velocity, low-amplitude chiropractic spinal manipulation therapy to the region of her upper cervical spine. The upper cervical chiropractic technique used consisted of the Blair protocol. It was found that there was significant improvement in her seizure fits and menstrual cycles after just 12 weeks of consistent chiropractic therapy.
In the end, this case study showed that substantial improvement was witnessed in a young woman with a seizure disorder following continued upper cervical chiropractic manipulation administration. This case hints at the need for continued research in order to evaluate the ways that upper cervical chiropractic methods can provide long-term therapeutic aid to patients with disrupting seizure disorders.
