Ataxia

“After Rajiv’s first upper cervical adjustment, his Dad said that he didn’t have to hold onto the walls when walking down the hallway anymore.”

Ataxia is a neurological problem which means poor muscle coordination, imbalance, instability, staggered gait or walking and unsteady movements.

We’re not quite sure what the problem is with the Chetty Brothers, Rajiv and Rohaan, even after extensive testing, nerve conduction studies and MRIs. It may be genetic, it may be acquired, but we know that there is a neurological problem between brain and legs. It’s a neuropathy that begins in the trunk and ends in the feet, impairing coordination and balance, creates pins and needles, and is hopefully not progressive. We also know that chiropractic care helps. Chiropractic care brings the function back online and all these things improve. The condition isn’t reversed, but their quality of life is raised, and that’s the point.

I’m really grateful the boys were willing to share their story…
