Researching Chiropractic: Migraines, Drop Attacks, & Seizures

Researching Chiropractic. How many people who are suffering, reliant on medication on drugs, and facing a life of limitation could be helped by chiropractic care?  Probably most of them.

Migraines in a 16-year-old Girl

A 16-year-old girl had been complaining of migraines since kindergarten.  She was experiencing migraines 1-2 times per week, each attack lasting approximately 2-3 hours. Under medical care, she had an MRI (magnetic resonance imaging), a CT scan (computer axial tomography), and a dental consultation. Nothing was found. 

She consulted with a chiropractor. Chiropractic analysis revealed an atlas (C-1) subluxation. The patient received five adjustments to the atlas. She was able to stop using medications as her headaches reduced to 2-4 per month. (1) 

Drop Attacks on a 23-year-old Man

A 23-year-old male complaining of drop attacks and daily nausea, vomiting, severe headaches, and back pain for five years began chiropractic care.

After one month of care, the patient reported a resolution of drop attacks, daily vomiting, and other symptoms. (2) 

Seizures and Delays in Cognitive Development in a Two-Year-Old Boy

A 2-year-old boy suffered from seizures, behavioral disturbances, and cognitive developmental delays following a head trauma. 

He was experiencing 1-3 seizures per week and sometimes up to 3 seizures per day. In addition, he was combative, angry, and uncooperative with his parents and had a developmental delay in his language use. 

His parents brought the child in for chiropractic care fifteen months after his injury. A chiropractic examination revealed a subluxation of the C1 (atlas) vertebra. The patient had a total of seven visits over a five-and-a-half-month period. 

There was an improvement and eventual cessation of his seizures and an improvement in the patient’s behavior and cognitive development. (3)
