Cerebral Palsy from Equilibrium Spinal Care
Chiropractic care is an excellent treatment option for patients with cerebral palsy. At Equilibrium Spinal Care in Oakland, CA, we provide a wide range of services to help patients with this condition. Chiropractic treatment is a holistic treatment to manipulate the spine and provides more movement and pain relief.
What Is Cerebral Palsy?
Cerebral palsy is a neurological disorder that affects muscle control and movement. This condition could result from brain damage before, during, or after birth. Cerebral palsy can affect arms and legs, making it difficult for patients to walk or move their limbs. As a result, multiple patients use chiropractic treatment to improve their quality of life.
Symptoms of Cerebral Palsy
The symptoms of cerebral palsy can vary depending on the type of condition the person has. Some patients have a lot of independence, while others need much more assistance. However, some general symptoms include muscle stiffness and tightness, muscle weakness, poor muscle tone, fatigue, especially after using muscles that have been inactive for a long time, and uncontrollable movements, such as tremors and shakes in the arms or legs.
Our facility also has NUCCA (National Upper Cervical Chiropractic Association). NUCCA is a highly specialized form of chiropractic focusing on the upper cervical vertebrae. The upper spine is often overlooked in traditional chiropractic treatment, but NUCCA has found that this area can play a significant role in pain relief. It also helps patients suffering from muscle spasms and nerve damage from cerebral palsy.
Why Use NUCCA Treatment?
The NUCCA approach uses a gentle but precise correction of the atlas bone located at the top of the neck. This correction can reduce or eliminate nerve compression caused by misaligned vertebrae and improve body function. The adjustments are subtle yet powerful enough to provide long-term relief without causing discomfort or disruption in daily activities. We will discuss the advantages of using this treatment option if you or one of your family members has cerebral palsy.
