Using chiropractic adjustments

Using chiropractic adjustments

Has anyone else tried chiropractic adjustments as a non-pharmacologic seizure treatment? I started them based off of an Edgar Cayce recommendation, and I have had no seizures or auras and have actually had to decrease both of my medications due to elevated blood levels. I did nothing else different.

yes in the past i have seen great improvement getting treated by a good chiropractor. now i can't afford. you have to try out different chiropractor until you find the right one for you.

Yes. I tried them in my teens for about a year and there wasn’t a difference in my seizures.

I tried this with my 10 year old daughter and it seemed to be going well but then we went one day and that night she had a seizure @ 12 am , then 3 am and again at 9 am, after that I started giving up on Chiropractic to help control her seizures. We started her on medication, the neuro prescribed her a sodium blocker med and that left her having small seizuresand made her feel horrible so we switched to Keppra aand that has bad effects too, stuffy nose all the time increase in migraines,, leg cramps, weight gain, irritability, memory and concentration problems so now we are watching her diet, not letting her get overwhelmed or too tired. Lifestyle changes has helped her tremendously but she also supposedly has Benign Rolandic Epilepsy.
