It has long been proven that a chiropractic adjustment boosts immune function and helps regulation of the nervous system. For many years I have worked with children and seen first hand the miracle of a child with continuous illness, asthma or ear infections; start chiropractic treatment and end up healthy and happy and off medications. It is wonderful to work in a profession that gives power to the innate intelegence of the individual, actually giving the power to the individual. It is unfortunate that over the years we have enviornmental destroyed our land and food, all in the name of ease and increased profits. In doing so, we are also destroying ourselves, as can be seen by the increase in infertility and children with health challenges.
Please read the study below and realize that this translates to all illness. When the nervous system functions without pressure or blockage, it truly is self healing. Given time and proper treatment, the body will heal.

Objective: The purpose of this paper is to report on the outcomes of a three year-old boy diagnosed with Pervasive Developmental Disorder (PDD) undergoing chiropractic care.
Clinical Features: A three year old boy, who was diagnosed with Pervasive Developmental Disorder by a developmental pediatrician. The child had communication problems, apraxia, and speech delay.
Intervention and Outcomes: The patient received chiropractic care over the course of 5 months. The care consisted of Diversified technique adjustments to the upper cervical and sacral regions, balancing exercises, kinesiotaping of bilateral foot overpronation, and diet modification. The outcomes were measured by re-assessments, parental evaluation and health care provider and teacher reports. The child began making friends, became more interactive, less defiant and was reported to be an overall happier child following the introduction of chiropractic care.
Conclusions: Following the introduction of chiropractic care and lifestyle changes this child experienced an improvement in his quality of life. Further research into the role of chiropractic and lifestyle changes is called for in this population of children.

I have been a chiropractor for since 1996 but an athlete since I played baseball with the boys in the early pee wee leagues. I continued with sports throughout my high school career: softball, basketball, skiing and competitive horseback riding. In chiropractic school I was introduced to functional exercise and structural rehabilitation and continue to do this type of exercise to this day with great success.
