Epilepsy is not a disease. It is a sign or symptom of an underlying neurological disorder.

Epilepsy is a disorder characterized by recurrent and unprovoked seizures and temporary impairment of brain function.

The brain is a highly complex and sensitive organ. It controls and regulates all our actions. It controls motor movements, sensations, thoughts, and emotions. It is the seat of memory, and it regulates the involuntary inner workings of the body such as the function of the heart and the lungs.

The brain cells work together, communicating through the nervous system by means of electric signals. Occasionally there is an abnormal electrical discharge from a group of cells, and the result is a seizure.

Chiropractic Adjustments Remove Subluxations Which Interfer With Proper Nerve Function.

It is estimated that approximately 70,000-129,000 new cases of epilepsy occur each year in the United States, which corresponds to approximately 30 to 53 cases per 100,000 people. About one-third of these new cases begin in childhood. Incidence is also high in the elderly.

More than 2 million people, or one percent of the population, in the United States have epilepsy.

THERE IS CURRENTLY NO CURE FOR EPILEPSY.

Head injuries, strokes, brain tumors, infections and genetic conditions are potential causes of approximately 35% of all cases of epilepsy.

In the remaining 65%, no cause can be found.

Anti-epileptic drugs (AEDs) are the principal therapy for epilepsy. Currently, available medications do not control seizures adequately in 30% of patients. Many patients whose seizures are under control with current AEDs still suffer from the side effects of the medication.

Non-compliance with AED therapy is the most common cause of breakthrough seizures in people with epilepsy. Sleep deprivation, alcohol withdrawal, and stress can also increase the risk of having epileptic seizures.

Epilepsy tends to affect slightly more men than women, but it can strike anyone, at any age.

In most cases, epilepsy is not genetic. However, hereditary factors can play a role.

Almost 9% of children whose mothers have epilepsy and 2.4% whose fathers have epilepsy will develop the condition.

Although information from large group clinical trials is lacking, several single case studies have shown that chiropractic adjustments helps to decrease the frequency of a patient’s seizures, as well as decrease the severity and duration of seizures.
