Types of Seizures and the Best Natural Care


It is a natural reaction for people who experience seizures to think: Will there be more of this? It is essential to know the reason behind your seizure to understand if you may experience another one. Often, it is a singular event. Is it necessary to start taking medication after just one episode? Unknown by many, NUCCA chiropractic in Redwood City can help. 

What Causes Seizures?

Often, it can be challenging to identify. Also, knowing whether to take medications can be equally painful to determine. Patients and doctors often struggle with what course of action is the best to consider when it comes to treating seizure attacks.

Take a look at a variety of seizures listed here:

  • Atonic seizure: Losing muscle tone
  • Clonic seizure: Repeated jerking movements in your neck, face, and arm muscles
  • Myoclonic seizure: Occasional jerking movements in your face, arm muscles, and neck
  • Absence seizure: Briefly losing consciousness
  • Grand mal seizure: Unconsciousness, convulsions, stiff muscles
  • Tonic seizure: Stiff and rigid muscles

Coping with Seizures Through NUCCA Chiropractic in Redwood City 

People generally seek natural solutions to deal with pain reduction and overall health care. One clear option available for patients who desire a safe and more natural approach is upper cervical chiropractic.

A study observed patients who had more than one seizure. The seizures stopped after they had upper cervical chiropractic adjustments. Upper cervical doctors employ a gentle adjustment method that encourages the atlas bone to return into position, restoring proper nervous system communication and blood flow between the brain and the rest of the body. Many cases showed that is more than enough to provide improvement or even stop seizure attacks. 

Here at Advanced Spinal Care in Redwood City, California, we use the same technique in the study to care for our patients who experience seizures. We use advanced technology to analyze the atlas (C1) bone and identify its precise position, and whether it has shifted out of alignment. If a misalignment is detected, it can put tension on the brainstem, thereby affecting the proper function of the entire central nervous system.Call us at (650) 595-0500 or fill out our form for more details about upper cervical care, and also to schedule an appointment with Dr. Pete Tsiglieris.
