Epilepsy is a common condition marked by unexpected seizures brought on by a sudden surge of electrical activity in the brain. This may manifest in convulsions, muscle spasms, sensory disturbance and more.
The cause of these seizures is not fully understood, though often an injury to the upper back, neck or head has precipitated the condition. In some cases the trauma may have occurred during the birthing process.
Whenever the brain stem is compromised the communication between the brain and body is undermined, contributing to health issues such as seizure disorders. Atlas Orthogonal chiropractors, like Dr. Peddy, help restore that communication by adjusting the upper cervical spine.
