Seizures

A change in consciousness that occurs when the brain discharges an abnormal amount of energy is a seizure. Seizures vary in strength and duration due to the amount of excess energy released.  They can be a total lapse in consciousness with jolting body fits to simply staring off into space. Most people who have a seizure never experience another one. 

Forms of Seizures

  • The drop seizures when there is a loss of muscle control to legs, but no loss of consciousness.
  • Narcolepsy or sleep attacks.
  • Transient global amnesia, a seizure that is a total loss of memory for several hours.

During a Seizure

Your Chiropractors goal is to relieve your body of vertebral subluxations so that your body may function properly.  Uncorrected vertebral subluxations can cause a weakening of the spinal muscles, stretch and deform the spinal column, cartilage, discs and vertebrae. This causes a lack of energy, early aging and fatigue.  But the most prevalent result of spinal nerve stress is the irritation of the nervous system and brain stem.  This irritation is an interference that interrupts the information and energy flow to the various parts of the body and lowers our natural resistance to sickness and disease. Chiropractors are trained to locate and correct vertebral subluxation through examination and spinal adjustment. The adjustments relieve the nerve stress and assist in restoration of body function. Proper functioning of the nervous system through chiropractic treatment is one of the best defenses against conditions and diseases that one would normally not be susceptible to.

The Medical Approach

In the medical field, seizures are controlled by drug therapy, however this is only accomplished with 37% of patients over a two-year period and those statistics drop to 20% after five years. Some patients suffer from toxicity due to the drugs, and most drugs are selected and used by trail and error. Some of the commonly prescribed medications are Dilatin, Phenobarbital, Tegretal, valproic acid, and clonazepam. There are few studies of these drugs, their toxicity and their side effects. The long-term effects are unknown. Some of the known side effects are double vision, slurred speech, clumsy movements, fatigue, lethargy and apathy.

Seizures and Surgery

Seizures that cannot be controlled with medically prescribed drugs are sometimes treated by surgery. This surgery is performed on the brain and it has a success rate of approximately 75%, with the other 25% experiencing no change.

Pregnancy and Seizures

Seizures during pregnancy can cause a high risk of hypoxia or acidosis to the unborn child, as well as pressure on the abdomen of the mother, all of which may lead to miscarriage or possible congenital abnormalities. The drugs prescribed for seizures are nit an option for expectant mothers as they may cause mental retardation, tumors and birth defects in the child. Non-medical treatments a wise option for the pregnant women who experiences seizures.

The Goal Of Chiropractic

Your Chiropractors goal is to relieve your body of vertebral subluxations so that your body may function properly.  Uncorrected vertebral subluxations can cause a weakening of the spinal muscles, stretch and deform the spinal column, cartilage, discs and vertebrae. This causes a lack of energy, early aging and fatigue.  But the most prevalent result of spinal nerve stress is the irritation of the nervous system and brain stem.  This irritation is an interference that interrupts the information and energy flow to the various parts of the body and lowers our natural resistance to sickness and disease. Chiropractors are trained to locate and correct vertebral subluxation through examination and spinal adjustment. The adjustments relieve the nerve stress and assist in restoration of body function. Proper functioning of the nervous system through chiropractic treatment is one of the best defenses against conditions and diseases that one would normally not be susceptible to.

There has been great success in treating seizure sufferers with chiropractic, with reports of lessening intensity and even complete disappearance of the seizures through chiropractic care. Although chiropractic does not treat the disorder of seizures, it does treat the person with seizures, strengthening their body and relieving spinal nerves stress, which enables their body to function more properly and heal.

Spinal Nerve Stress

You may suffer from spinal nerve stress for years before a symptom appears, but while symptoms are absent the damage to the body is being done over time.  This is why a chiropractic check-up and maintenance is very important. A vertebral subluxation, diagnosed in its early stage is easier to correct than a subluxation that has progressed to the point of actual symptoms. Just as we should see our dentist regularly, we should see our chiropractor regularly.  Like dental care, if a cavity is located when it is small it may be filled, but if one waits until pain is noticed that cavity may have already damaged the tooth beyond repair, the same holds true for vertebral subluxation.

Our chiropractic office educates our patients in lifestyle changes that compliment their spinal care. Chiropractic spinal adjustments strengthen areas of the spine and restore impaired nerve flow. Subluxations occur when vertebra misalign irritating delicate spinal nerves. Spinal adjustments remove the nerve pressure and restore function to the body. Chiropractic spinal adjustments by our chiropractors help you live your life to its fullest through a properly functioning nervous system. When your nervous system is functioning properly you express life to your fullest. Chiropractic spinal adjustments enable you to express your God given health potential and to live your life to fullest capabilities. Neck pain, back pain, sciatica, reduced immunity, ear infections, decreased energy, stomach disorders, asthma, allergies, sinus problems, headaches, carpal tunnel syndrome, shoulder problems, sports injuries, spinal disc degeneration, osteoarthritis, numbness, pain, are just some of the signs of improper function in the body and conditions that benefit from Chiropractic spinal adjustments. Don't delay and wait for a spinal problem to develop before you seek out Chiropractic care. Get a Chiropractic spinal adjustment and deal with the cause of your problems rather than masking it with medications which often deal just with the symptoms. Whether you are feel great and want to ensure a healthy and fully functional future or if you are in pain and seek the safe and effective proven results of Chiropractic spinal adjustments, you owe it to yourself to have a spinal check up and to start down the healthy road of lifetime Chiropractic care.
