Child’s Seizures Gone After Chiropractic Treatment

By: Gwinnett Medical Back & Neck Pain

Seizures can be a debilitating condition, particularly for children. A seizure occurs when a large number of cells send out an electrical charge at the same time. This wave of electricity overwhelms the brain and results in a seizure, which can cause muscle spasms, strange behavior, a loss of consciousness, or other symptoms. Diagnosing children with them can be particularly tricky. Seizures are over so quickly your doctor may never see your child exhibiting the trait. Additionally, some seizures are often mistaken for daydreaming.

While doctors have prescribed many drugs for treating epilepsy, but there is not cure for it. However, there has been a link between chiropractic visits and a decrease in seizure activity. A chiropractic physician, Dr. Tiffany Johnson with Healing Touch Chiropractic, discussed on North Dakota Today how Sarah Dicken’s seizures were eliminated through chiropractic care.

Directly tied to the imbalanced autonomic nervous system is the vagus nerve. The nerve is vital in parasympathetic function to organs and glands. Stimulating the vagus nerve can help rebalance the autonomic nervous system, which has been shown to reduce the frequency of seizures and epileptic activity.

Chiropractic care not only stimulates the vagus nerve but helps improve function and regulates it with precise adjustments. There have been many such cases of children with debilitating seizures finding relief in regular chiropractic care. In one example, a 16-year-old girl had been living with seizures since she was 5 years of age. She suffered about 4 or 5 seizures a day. During chiropractic care, her seizure activity consistently measured only 5 seizures a month.
