Why Infants Need Chiropractic Care

It is common to get strange looks from people I talk to about taking infants to the chiropractor. I know what is going through their heads: Is it safe? Babies don’t have back pain. Do babies get adjusted the same way I do? These are legitimate concerns for any parent, but to answer them I will begin with the most important question: Why

Being born is tough work. There are a lot of pressures and forces being exerted onto your baby during her journey into the world. A recent study by Viola Frymann demonstrated that 90 percent of newborns suffered the effects of birth trauma: associated strain through the neck and cranial areas following birth. Frymann, an American osteopathic doctor, studied more than 1,500 babies periodically across an eight-year period. She examined all babies within the first five days of birth; in fact, many were checked within the first 24 hours of birth. This study revealed that approximately:

  • 10 percent of the newborn babies had perfect, freely mobile skulls or cranial mechanisms.
  • 10 percent had severe trauma to the head, evident even to untrained observers.
  • The remaining 80 percent all had some strain patterns in the cranial mechanism.

Left uncorrected, this trauma continues to impact a baby’s spinal growth and development, reducing the healthy function of her nerve system. This can cause many health challenges later in life that could easily have been prevented.

Chiropractic – Healing From Within

 

meditate-sedona-heal

Have you ever seen a bored newborn? Of course not. Babies radiate awe, joy, wonder, vitality, energy, life and rejuvenation. It’s their natural state. It is your natural state too. You are always in touch with the magic of life. Even the most ill person retains a healing ability: cut their skin, they’ll bleed and begin healing. If there’s life, there’s still a spark of healing, of hope.

 

We chiropractors do not put anything in your body – no drugs, no vaccinations and we don’t take anything out of your body – no surgery. Instead we release a serious form of stress locked in your body called a “vertebral subluxation” that prevents you from functioning at your best. Subluxations in your spine can affect the nerves that regulate your immune system, digestive system, elimination system – all your body systems –  because subluxations interfere with communication between your nerve system, brain, spinal nerves and internal organs. If you have a subluxation in your spine you cannot function at your physical and mental best.

Chiropractors correct or release subluxations using specialized procedures called spinal adjustments. For over a century people suffering from all kinds of conditions who were told to “learn to live with it” have returned to health under chiropractic care. And yet chiropractic isn’t for diseases, it’s for people – to release blockages between you and the life always wishing to flow through you and heal you.

Please don’t leave your children and your parents home to get sick while you are coming in for subluxation correction and getting healthy. Make chiropractic a family affair! You’ll all be happier and healthier for it!

Symptom Whack-a-Mole

whackamole

The object of the carnival game Whack-a-Mole is to use a mallet to hit as many critters as possible when they pop up in random succession. Trouble is, as you hit one mole, three more pop up and disappear before you can nail them all. Whack-a-Mole is a perfect metaphor for how people are medicated today. Unfortunately in this game you end up on a ton of drugs, for a bunch of problems, with no actual improvement in your health.

According to a NCHS Data brief by the CDC, over the last 10 years the percentage of Americans who took at least one prescription drug in the past month increased from 44% to 48%. The use of two or more drugs increased from 25% to 31%. The use of five or more drugs increased from 6% to 11%. Yet despite taking all these drugs, the US embarrassingly ranks 37th among the world’s industrial countries when it comes overall health.

For Chiropractors, health is not defined by how many symptoms you can temporarily ‘whack away’ with drugs, but how well your body can adapt to its environment and heal under its own . You have more healing intelligence in your little finger than all the doctors and pharmacies in the world put together. Big Pharma doesn’t believe so, but Chiropractors do. Keep your Nerve System clear and you won’t have to play their failing game.

A Teacup of Innate

SONY DSC

Scoop up a cup of water from the ocean and in that vessel you’ll have some ocean – not the actual ocean, but a part of the ocean, composed of the same physical, chemical and substantive properties. The same can be said for the intelligent force of Life within us and its relationship to a greater force that governs the cosmos.

The innate intelligence or ‘organizing wisdom’ within you is part of a greater intelligence that holds the entire universe in organized existence… you being the vessel in which it expresses itself. Your innate intelligence may not be THE entire intelligence of the universe, but instead a part of it… limited only by the matter through which it manifests. And this intelligent, inner power which holds YOU together has one purpose – to sustain your existence on the planet.

So think about it. If you INDEED possess a portion of the same intelligence that gives stars their glow, planets their orbit and flowers their scent, why would you put your faith in an inanimate pill or potion to manage your health? Maybe because you don’t realize the Power you have in your ‘tea cup.’ The most important job we have as Chiropractors, is to show you what you are innately made of – and to teach you how to safeguard it. Do you trust the power you have within to heal you?

“Don’t Miss if You’re Sick…”

Chiro Kleenex Box

If you ever thought about canceling your appointment because you were sick and didn’t want to spread your germs to everyone in the office, think again.  It’s actually the BEST time to come in.

 

The field of neuro-immunology has well established the connection between a healthy nerve system and normal immune function. Chiropractic adjustments boost your ability to fight off colds and flus by unlocking your spine, clearing nerve tension and unleashing your immune POTENTIAL.  And doesn’t it make sense to keep your immune system working its best so you can get better faster?

 

You wouldn’t cancel a dental appointment because your tooth hurt.  Likewise, don’t cancel your Chiropractic appointment when your nerve system is fighting to get you well.  Even if you’re under the weather, try not to miss adjustments…. and don’t worry about the other folks in the office getting sick – everyone here will be adjusted, protected and ready to serve you.

Feeling Out Of Tune

map_img_1138084_1501023103

You can’t sleep, your energy levels are low and you’re finding it harder to make it through your day. The specialists insist there’s nothing wrong, but you innately feel like something’s out of tune. Maybe it’s time to call the Chiropractor.

 

D.D. Palmer, the Father of Chiropractic, recognized that repetitive physical, chemical and emotional stress can alter the normal ‘tone’ within a person’s Nerve System (a.k.a. Subluxation). This persistent irritation can lead to poor physical, mental and emotional performance.  The solution? Restore normal tone to the Nerve System with specific, Chiropractic adjustments and better health will naturally follow!

 

Health is the ‘music’ that plays when all your cells, tissues and organs vibrate perfectly in unison – orchestrated by a finely tuned Nerve System. If you’re feeling sluggish, weak and tired, a trip to the Chiropractor may just be the thing YOU need to get back in key.

HEALTH IS NORMAL

Many of our patients are surprised to learn that chiropractic doesn’t cure anything. So, how do you explain diseases that have obviously improved with chiropractic care?
The fundamental truth is: health is your normal state. If you’re not healthy, there is something interfering with this normal state. The only thing that doctors of any type can do is to remove interferences that may be pre-venting your body from expressing your normal health potential.
Our focus is on your nerve system, which controls and regulates every aspect of your body. Restoring better brain/body communications permit a more normal expression of health. The fact that the healing of your body may improve is an expression of better nerve system control of the functioning of your body.
Thus, chiropractic doesn’t cure anything. Only you can do that. If there isn’t any interference!
