Pediatric Epileptic Patients and Cervical Adjustments

Chiropractic care may represent a non-pharmaceutical healthcare approach for pediatric epileptic patients. A study, reviewed in the March 2001 issue of the Journal of Manipulative and Physiologic Therapeutics, took 17 epileptic patients and treated these patients with medications. No improvement occurred as a result. Upper cervical care to correct vertebral subluxation was administered to 15 of these patients. All 15 reported positive outcomes as a result of chiropractic adjustments.
