Chiropractic intervention aims to improve the structural aspects of the body to clear the pathway for the brain to communicate with the nerves. This can result in improved strength, balance, flexibility and coordination skills, especially in the limbs.
A chiropractor will use several techniques to determine where a subluxation, or misalignment, is. An adjustment is completed when the joints of the spine are moved beyond the point where they would normally move in a way where it does not harm or dislocate the joints. Doing so will require the chiropractor to use gentle force and trained expertise to complete the movements.
There is no cure for Cerebral Palsy, but there is evidence that chiropractic care can be helpful to children suffering from this condition. A handful of studies indicates that children that underwent spinal manipulation could sit and stand with more ease. Also, the studies indicated that some children became more active, digested food more efficiently, slept more peacefully, and enjoyed improved coordination after undergoing chiropractic care.
