If you have had one seizure, does it mean you will continue to have them throughout your life? Not necessarily. One out of every ten people that have seizures will never experience them again. This brings up the question as to whether or not medication should be given after the first seizure to prevent further ones that may never happen.
Relieving seizures can be a real hardship on doctors and patients alike. There are a variety of forms of seizures, such as grand mal (being unconscious, convulsing, and stiff muscles), absence (briefly losing consciousness), myoclonic (occasional jerking movements), clonic (repeated jerking movements), tonic (stiff and rigid muscles), and atonic (losing muscle tone). There is no known cause for seizures, but there are some new guidelines as to how to deal with them.
Relieving Seizures the Natural Way
There is a trend toward relieving health conditions with natural methods, and seizures are no exception. Dr. Andrea Pritchett of Dublin, California is an upper cervical chiropractor that has had much success in helping patients with seizures. Dr. Pritchett focuses her attention on the top bone of the vertebra, called the Atlas bone or C1. If this bone is out of alignment, it will hinder the function of the nervous system and the brain. In fact, it can affect the part of the brain that controls movement in the body.
Studies done on patients that have experienced multiple seizures have shown that after they received upper cervical chiropractic care seizures stopped, not just short term but for longer periods of time. By realigning the Atlas bone, Dr. Pritchett may be able to help you get relief from the seizures you are suffering from. It is a gentle and effective procedure, and patients often see fast results.
