What is Epilepsy?

nervous system chiropractic care

Epilepsy is a long-term neurological disorder in which sudden, recurrent seizures are triggered by an electrical surge in the brain. This neurological problem is rarely caused by congenital conditions.

Some common causes of epilepsy are:

  • traumatic brain injury
  • stroke
  • infection
  • brain tumour
  • hereditary conditions

Traumatic brain injuries, such as head injuries, have a strong link to epilepsy. These injuries commonly cause health issues, resulting in changes in blood pressure, low back pain and depression

Many patients may find themselves receiving anticonvulsive medications. However, if an injury is the cause, it can be proven unsuccessful.

Epileptic patients cannot control their seizures, and this illness can affect people of all ages.

There is presently no cure for epilepsy, but its symptoms can be managed through Chiropractic care.

What are the Types of Seizures?

Seizures occur differently for everyone, which makes it quite difficult to identify the symptoms.

Depending on the part of the brain affected, it can be divided into two primary categories:

Generalized Seizures

Generalized seizures affect both sides of the brain, and loss of consciousness may occur.

Some examples of generalized seizures include:

  • Absence seizures – characterised by fast blinking or prolonged staring.
  • Tonic-clonic seizures – anyone experiencing a tonic-clonic seizure may stumble, experience muscle spasms, pass out, or cry out.

Focal Seizures

Focal seizures happen when one or more regions of one side of the brain experience abnormal electrical brain activity.

Some examples of focal seizures include:

  • Complex focal seizures – can leave a person confused or disoriented, making it challenging for them to respond to questions or pay attention for several minutes.
  • Secondary generalized seizures – begins with a focal seizure and then a generalised seizure.
  • Simple focal seizures – causes twitching or sensory alterations, such as an off-putting taste or smell

Regardless of the type of seizure, it is best to seek appropriate care to ensure a greater quality of

Can Chiropractic Care manage Seizure Disorders?

chiropractic care as part of overall health care management

Most epilepsy patients receive anticonvulsive medications to treat their seizures, some of which you might be familiar with if you or your loved ones have epilepsy.

While some epileptic patients may benefit from pharmacotherapy, most still suffer from high-frequency or high-intensity seizure disorders.

Although anticonvulsive medications are necessary at times, current anecdotal evidence suggests natural options can help.

Upper Cervical Chiropractic care leads to healthy nerve function and has been shown to help seizure disorders. With a healthy nervous system, communication is improved in the body, resulting in fewer epileptic attacks.

Evidence suggests that Chiropractic care may have similar benefits to surgical vagus nerve stimulation for epileptic patients, offering reported positive outcomes.

Chiropractic care can be the non-invasive, pain-free and non-pharmaceutical approach you need when medications are ineffective.

It has a history of not just helping low back pain and neck pain, but research has shown improvements in seizure occurrence, blood pressure, and other neurological conditions.

Our Chiropractors at Vitality Chiropractic Centres employs targeted Chiropractic adjustments on the upper cervical spine, correcting vertebral Subluxations to reduce seizures.
