A properly developing nervous system as a child is key to maintaining a high level of health as an adult!
The following is an example of one of our pediatric patients, a 9 year old female. She had been complaining of increasingly worsening headaches, which she would get specifically after riding in the car or doing schoolwork. Her mother told us that her daughter has been under the care an observation of a neurologist, who wanted to begin extensive medication therapy if her headaches did not improve by early December.
After one month of care, the patient and her mother reported no further issues with headaches, and the patient no longer requires medications to control headaches. The lack of curve in her neck in the left film had distorted the alignment of her head and cervical vertebrae in relation to the rest her body, causing tension on her spinal cord in her neck. After 12 adjustments, the patient’s curve recovered within a normal curve range and improved alignment of her head and cervical vertebrae in relation to the rest of her body.
