my son, Joel moved in with us 2 weeks ago. Joel has many medical problems, he experiences severe epilepsy, has had 2 cardiac surgeries, his neck is weak and is always bothering him, he used to have adjustments often but the last 6 years has had no chiropractic care. Joel is dizzy when he stands so uses a wheetchair alot, he takes many medications, and I am so concerned about his well being. Do you think he would be a candidate for chiropractic care? Joel has only medicare, and is on disability so has a very limited income. Joel would not be able to lie on a table, because 2 years ago he had his ribs cracked open for his heart surgeries. Please give me some adivce, he is only 33 years old and I hate to see him suffer. Please inform ASAP.

Even given his considerable health history, there are still chiropractic techniques that may help to mobilize his spine, strengthen his neck, and reduce central nervous system dysfunction. Look for a doctor who utilizes upper cervical technique, myofascial release (for the scar tissue following the surgery), or one who uses activator or arthrostim as these are techniques that can be administered without compression to his ribcage.
