Asthma

children AsthmaOne of the most frightening things a parent can go through is seeing their child struggle to breathe.  I spent my entire childhood, teens and early adult life struggling to breathe and was close to death on several occasions and I’ve lost count of how many times I was hospitalized.  I have been on every asthma drug ranging from prednisone to ventolin.

Not only is asthma one of the fastest growing diseases among children and teens but it also accounts for the most prescriptions filled of any other childhood medication.

No one knows what causes asthma but we know it is an autoimmune disorder (When the body’s immune system is confused and attacks itself).

Chiropractic is certainly not a treatment for asthma.  However, we have helped many children and adults including myself with this condition.  The focus in Chiropractic is on removing spinal misalignments (subluxations) so the central nervous system can properly control and coordinate body functions such as the immune system.

After an examination of your child or yourself we will let you know if we can help.

Digestive Concerns

Many symptoms can be caused in children with GI concerns such as constipation, pain, vomiting, failure to thrive, diarrhea, incontinence, bloating and more.  Although the focus in Chiropractic is on the nervous system and spine and not the treatment of digestive concerns, we have helped many children with these issues.  The GI tract like every other body system is coordinated and controlled by the central nervous system with travels through the spine before it touches every cell, tissue and organ in the body.

Spinal misalignments (subluxations) in the upper neck or thoracic (mid back) spine can cause these problems.  Often children have a history of trauma or birth trauma (C-section, breech, forceps or vacuum).

Hopefully we can help and we will let you know once we have examined your child.

Constipation

The standard treatment is laxatives and stool softeners, but why is the problem there?  Fortunately we have helped many children ranging from severe to mild constipation and even prevented surgery in some cases.

Cognitive Impairment
(Autism, Hyperactivity and more)

One of the most difficult things we can face is a child with a learning disorder!  We all hope our children will be successful, happy and healthy.

I have seen children go from being severely autistic to being not even noticeable to an average person.  Chiropractic is not a treatment for cognitive impairment but because our focus in on the central nervous system and its proper coordination and development we can often help, sometimes dramatically.
