Chiropractic does not “treat” epilepsy and seizures. However, since seizures and epilepsy are central nervous system disorders and chiropractic works with improving nervous system function, epilepsy and seizures can improve or even resolve with chiropractic care. Balancing energy in the nervous system through chiropractic care can help reduce or eliminate epilepsy and seizure symptoms. 1,2,3
The first thing we do in our office is we determine if there is nerve disturbance causing or contributing to the epilepsy and seizure symptoms. We are able to do this through a thorough history and a state of the art non-invasive nervous system evaluation.
The reason our approach is so successful when compared to other common approaches to dealing with epilepsy and seizures is that we are focused on addressing the cause of the epilepsy and seizures. Our approach is not a Band-Aid approach. Other common treatments focus on addressing the effect (symptom) or worse taking a “let’s hope they grow out of it” approach.
Following the history and evaluation, if we find out we can help we will present a care plan to correct the problem.
