“It Is Far Easier To Care For Children Than To Repair Damaged Adults”
Most children can’t make their own health decisions. Consequently, they are often affected by the decisions that their parents make for their health. Our mission is to empower parents with the proper knowledge on how to raise healthy children.
Our focus is not only building their health but also helping to prevent future problems. If your child/children is/are experiencing any medical condition such as ADD, Ear Infections, Colic, Autism, Allergies, Learning Disabilities, etc., we can help!
From the July 12, 2003 issue of the peer reviewed, “Journal of Vertebral Subluxation Research, comes a case study of a very ill nine year old boy. According to the case study, this child was suffering from a multitude of problems including, asthma and upper respiratory infections since infancy; headaches since age 6; Tourette Syndrome, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), depression and insomnia since age 7; and neck pain since age 8. It was noted in this child’s history that he had been delivered by forceps delivery. His mother described her son as being “constantly sick since birth.”
There has been much discussion about forceps delivery causing a variety of health problems in children. In the December 2nd, 1999 issue of the New England Journal of Medicine, was a report that showed that the forceps delivery death rate was more than twice that for vaginal delivery. This situation along with other trauma the young boy had experienced offered some possible explanation for the findings of subluxations in this child. During the patient’s initial examination, evidence of a subluxation stemming from the upper cervical spine was found. Chiropractic care was then administered to correct and stabilize the patient’s upper neck subluxations.
A case study involving a 7-year-old boy suffering chronic colds, allergies, and asthma since the age of 5 months, who was subsequently helped with chiropractic, was documented in the August 17, 2009 issue of the scientific periodical, the Journal of Pediatric, Maternal and Family Health.
In this study the young boy’s parents explained that their son had been suffering from his problems since age 5, and was now taking the medications Alavert daily for allergies and Albuterol for asthma as needed. The child also required nebulizer treatments for his asthmatic episodes. Additionally steroid injections were also used “regularly”. Because of his illnesses he missed 1-2 days of school per month. He also had monthly visits to the medical doctor for all his health issues.
Thousands of asthma sufferers have found relief in a chiropractic office, and now some studies are supporting this phenomenon. In a 1997 study published in the Journal of Vertebral Subluxation Research, doctors placed 81 asthmatic children under chiropractic care. These children were evaluated after 60 days of chiropractic care. The results were simply amazing!
There was a significant improvement in the child’s asthma impairment score in 90.1% of the children, and many of the children voluntarily decreased their medications. In a 1995 study published in Chiropractic Pediatrics, seven out of eight children who were under chiropractic care were able to reduce or eliminate their asthma medication.
Two separate papers published in two scientific journals hold hope for children with autism through chiropractic care. One paper published in the March 2006 issue of Clinical Chiropractic reviews past studies on chiropractic and Autism. This paper recounts in clinical studies where children with autism are helped with chiropractic care. Most of the studies reviewed speak of problems in the upper cervical (neck) spine.
In addition to the Clinical Chiropractic paper, a study published in the March 9,
2006 Journal of Vertebral Subluxation (JVSR) compares two groups of children with autism and their response under chiropractic care. In this study 14 children diagnosed with autism were studied undergoing chiropractic care. Seven of these children received one form of chiropractic adjustments focusing on the entire spine while the other seven received a form of chiropractic adjustment focusing on the upper cervical spine.

There are numerous case studies that have been published on the benefits of chiropractic care and colic babies, but the most compelling research is a study that included 316 babies with colic.
In this study, 73 chiropractors treated 316 babies with moderate to severe colic. An incredible 94% of the babies demonstrated satisfactory results within 14 days of chiropractic care. 25% showed great improvement with just one treatment! In another study of 132 babies suffering from colic, an amazing 91% of the parents reported improvement within 1 week of care.
In a study designed to determine the characteristics of 217 children attending a chiropractic college teaching clinic, it was found that pediatric patients had common complaints of ear-infections, sinus problems, allergies, bed-wetting, respiratory problems, and gastro-intestinal problems. After undergoing chiropractic treatment, complete or substantial improvement was noted in 61.6% of pediatric patients.
In another study, children from 27 days to 5-years-old who suffered from ear infections were studied to determine if a correlation existed between chiropractic care and ear infections. It was found, that with chiropractic care, the recurrence rate over a six month period for acute ear infections was 11.02% and 16.34% for chronic ear infections. It was concluded that there is a strong correlation between the chiropractic adjustment and the resolution of ear infections for children in the study.
A case study research article published on November 17, 2009 in the scientific periodical, the Journal of Pediatric, Maternal and Family Health, documented a case showing improvement in learning disorder and speech delay in a four year old child undergoing chiropractic care to correct vertebral subluxations.
In this case a 4 year old boy was brought to the chiropractor having been diagnosed with a learning disorder and speech delay. The study noted that his speech was so severely impaired that others could not understand him. The boy’s mother reported that her son was not speaking when he started school which caused him much frustration and anger. He was under the care of a speech therapist.
