Inspiring Case Study: Child’s Chronic Ear Infections Resolve Following Chiropractic Adjustments

Chronic Otitis Media, Failed Tympanostomy Tube Surgery & Resolution Following Adjustment of Vertebral Subluxation A case study discusses the results of chiropractic care of a four-year old male presented for care with a history of failed tympanostomy tube (ear tube) surgery, as published in the Journal of Maternal and Family Health.  A 4-year old male presented to a chiropractic office with a history of failed tympanostomy surgery.  The child was scheduled for repeat tympanostomy surgery. Vertebral subluxations were found and adjusted in the cervical and thoracic spine. It is estimated that 40% of children suffer from otitis media (ear infection) before the age of 5. Direct and indirect costs of otitis media totaled 3 billion dollars in the year it was studied. The patient’s subluxations were adjusted using the Activator hand held adjusting instrument. On the third visit, the patient’s mother opted out of her son’s scheduled surgery.  The patient attended care with the recommended frequency at 2-3 times for the first two weeks, followed by once a week for eight weeks, for a duration of 12 weeks. The successful chiropractic care of a child with chronic ear infections is described. This study provides supporting evidence that children with similar complaints may benefit from chiropractic...

Case Study Shows Exciting Results: Breech Baby Turns After Mother Receives Chiropractic Care

Vertebral subluxations were identified using Webster Technique. The patient received care with the Webster Technique over three visits spanning five days.

It’s a little bit of Heaven every visit!

I had back and leg pain attributed to sciatica for several weeks. Pain kept me from many things, including getting a good night’s sleep. Chiropractic took away the pain, helped me to sleep better, to breathe better, to walk taller and to be in a happier frame of mind. I can now sit on the floor and play with my 4 lively granddaughters. I can sleep all night. I can walk without limping or hurting. I’m not taking pain relievers. I just love going into the office! Great music, happy greetings, positive outlooks, little kids being adorable, smiling staff; it’s a little bit of Heaven every visit. I love the positive affirmations, the decorations, and the pictures, too....

What is Vertebral Subluxation?

What is Vertebral Subluxation?

What is Vertebral Subluxation? Vertebral subluxation is the reason chiropractic exists. Over 100 years ago it was discovered that misalignment of a vertebra can cause significant nervous system interference, negatively impacting your health, function and well-being. While we rarely think about our nervous systems, the reality is that they impact every aspect of our health and lives. Today chiropractors continue to refine and develop advanced methods of detecting and correcting this common physical manifestation. While you may be considering or currently seeking care in this office to address some condition in your life, you need to know that subluxation often causes dysfunction within our bodies that we are not aware of. It is this form of interference to the expression of life and health that is most dangerous because it represents the loss of function, health, well-being and most importantly, potential, that could have been. This is why I get checked and check my family on a weekly basis. How often you and your family get checked and how long you benefit from chiropractic is dependent upon how long the nervous system dysfunction has been present and how long you wish for that system to be functioning optimally, free of vertebral subluxation. This is why many people, once they understand the true benefit and value of chiropractic choose to get checked throughout their lifetimes. In this way, chiropractic care is a healthy habit. Just as brushing your teeth, exercising, and eating in a healthy manner is a good idea for optimal health and function. Getting checked for the presence of vertebral subluxation is a good idea because it just makes sense. A healthy nervous system is the foundation for a healthy life. We envision a life free of vertebral subluxation for you and your family. A life of full potential expressed through a nerve system that is functioning optimally for...
