Anyone Have Advice On Chiropractic Adjustments Despite Having Seizures?

Anyone Have Advice On Chiropractic Adjustments Despite Having Seizures?

I've gotten the okay from my neurologist to seek minor adjustments. I sometimes have very bad neck pain, and icing it doesn't always do the trick. I also have a VNS.

I had fusions put in my back and doesn't effect my seizures.

My doctor told me it could be pinched nerves, from the siezures. She prescribed nerve pain medication, Gabapentin. It seems to work for all nerve pain.

I do get neck pain every now and then because of my VNS. I've seen the doc about it. So far the pain goes away within a few days. That pain will only occur if I sleep wrong or strain my neck some how. If that pain doesn't go away within a few days, my doc said to let her know. She'll check the device and refer me to a surgeon if need be.

Thanks for the advice. :)
My neck pain is in the upper back of my neck. Where my skull connects. I use to fling my neck back as a kid to pop it and gross people put. Despite being told that I'd break my neck doing it. Seems like I'm paying for it now.
