"Our names are Steve and Laura Austin. We are the parents of Chris Austin. Our son was diagnosed with Epilepsy when he was in kindergarten. Over years of testing to find out the type of Epilepsy he had, as well as various medications to control the seizures, our family was becoming increasingly frustrated with “modern” medicine. Doctors prescribed medications, but Chris would suffer break through seizures after a few months. We were finally able to determine that he suffered from Petit Mal through an EEG test. Once that occurred the medications prescribed began to control the seizures.
However, we were fairly sure that his Epilepsy began after a hard hit on the head that we felt had also jarred his neck. We simply felt that our son did not need to continue on medications that could cause him major complications later in life. Through our prayers and seeking God for answers, the cervical procedures that Dr. Thompson provides were introduced to us.
I can attest to the procedure giving Chris relief after the first day. Chris had previously had trouble in school due to his seizures. He had fallen behind in one particular area, spelling; he had really struggled. Our weekly study for spelling tests was frustrating to say the least. The night that he had his first adjustment, he was able to respond quicker and retain better the words that we were studying that evening. I was a true believer that night.
After a few months of adjustments, his neck held beautifully. He is not only off of his medication and completely clear of seizures, he is also able to focus and has much more energy than in previous years. He came to Dr. Thompson when he was in the 6th grade. He is now entering 8th grade.
There are simply not enough words in the English language to express how grateful we are for Dr. Thompson and the service that he provides.
On a side note, his office staff is amazing and he has a great attitude, and he takes time with patients. We often recommend Dr. Thompson to our friends and family.
