A new article about Structural Chiropractic helping a brain injured patient was published by Dr. Chung last month.
The article details the case of a 16 year-old girl who had suffered brain injury following a surgical procedure to remove a brain tumor. Following the surgery the parts of her brain that were damaged had a large impact on her posture and speech. She was unable to maintain balance, had increasing difficulty in social situations, and had little hope of doing routine tasks like driving.
Following a thorough exam and consultation, she began getting her atlas displacement corrected. Thanks to the remarkable ability for the brain to adapt and heal, her corrections began to stabilize and her secondary conditions began to improve. The structure of her spine was restored by 70%. As a result, her balance and speech improved dramatically. She even got to the point where her father had enough confidence in her stability that he actually bought her a car and allowed her to get her driver’s license!
