C-527: Seizures

Stacy was 3 years old when referred to the Kentuckiana Children's Center. Her entry complaint was "seizures night and day, pneumonia, cannot walk or talk and pronounced pain on bowel action." Her paternal grandmother who took care of Stacy stated "she is like a spastic child who screamed all the time. We are taking her to the hospital several times a week!"

Stacy's condition began at 3-1/2 months of age after a fall off the couch. For the next 33-1/2 months, Dilantin and Phenobarbital did not control the seizures. Her medical diagnosis at the time she came to Kentuckiana was “brain damage.”

After a comprehensive evaluation and the initiation of clinic care, an interesting sequence of events started which took a period of several years before a final resolution was accomplished.

As soon as chiropractic care began, the "screaming fits" and the weekly trips to the hospital stopped. Shortly thereafter, Stacy was able to walk. Continued chiropractic care resulted in a M.D. decision to discontinue Dilantin and Phenobarbital because there were no more seizures. Then a problem with spiking fevers was noted. A dentist found six absessed teeth which were then treated. Stacy, who also had exhibited symptoms of autism, now began to improve in her communication skills.

Today, although she is mentally retarded, Stacy is happy and healthy. Her grandmother says "I am so glad I didn't take the M.D.'s advice to put her away and listened to a mother at the hospital who recommended Kentuckiana. I am very grateful and give the Kentuckiana Children's Center all the credit for Stacy's many improvements."
