Chiropractic Helps Children with Development Delays - Nachmias Chiropractic

Never doubt the importance of chiropractic for children. A child has a spine and nervous system just like an adult and it is important to make sure to take good care of your child’s spine and nervous system, especially during the developmental years.

The Nervous System Controls the Whole Body
The central nervous system consists of the brain and the spinal cord, and is the body’s machinery. From the spinal cord there are nerves that go to every organ, gland, tissue, muscle and cell of the whole body. If there is a blocking (subluxation) in the “machinery” or any of these nerve paths, a child could react with a wide range of health issues (examples below).

Children encounter many traumas at an early age, or even before they are born, which can shift the spine out of alignment. The traumas can include events such as; intrauterine constraints, birth trauma, malpositioning (breech), c-section, birth intervention (forceps/vacuum suction) and falls.

When a subluxation of the spine happens, it needs to be corrected through chiropractic adjustments. If not, the spine will continue to grow “crooked” and cause health issues, such as:

  • Constipation
  • Colic
  • Bed Wetting
  • Ear Infections
  • Torticollis
  • Fussiness
  • Trouble Sleeping
  • Reflux etc.

Later in life, this can create trouble with:

  • Focus
  • Behavior
  • Mood
  • Hyperactivity
  • Digestion
  • Asthma / Allergies
  • Headaches / Migraines
  • Sensory Integration

A child that encounters chemical stressors like; vaccines, antibiotics, medication and diet, but also emotional stress (fear) will also cause a protective (fight/flight) response or tension within the musculature that supports the spine. These tense muscles can also misalign the spine and cause subluxations.

The child may even be hindered to develop speech and other motor skills if the nervous system has blockages. A professional chiropractor, like Dr. Adam Nachmias at Nachmias Chiropractic, can help with many childhood conditions and most importantly prevent them from happening.

To highlight how important chiropractic care is for children, we want to highlight this study by Chiropractic Pediatrics of a child with development delays, and the positive effects chiropractic had on him.

Improvement in Speech & Coordination Following Chiropractic Care in a Child with Developmental Delays and Vertebral Subluxation

Objective: This case report describes the chiropractic care of an infant with developmental delays.

Clinical Features: A two-year-old male presented for chiropractic consultation and possible care at a chiropractic clinical training center with developmental delays in speech and coordination. Symptoms included below average locomotion skill, delayed auditory comprehension and expressive communication, and difficulty swallowing certain textures.

Intervention and Outcome: The patient was cared for with Diversified Technique appropriate for his age. Outcome measures independently applied demonstrated improvement in the infants gross and fine motor skills based on comparative and baseline Peabody Developmental Motor Scales-2 (PDMS-2) scores while improvements in auditory comprehension and expressive communication were measured with the Preschool Language Scale-5 (PLS-5).

Conclusion: The successful chiropractic care of an infant with developmental delays was described. This study provides supporting evidence that infants with similar complaints may benefit from chiropractic care. (Parts taken from: onelovechiropractic.com & chiropracticpediatrics.com)

Apart from this study, over 80 percent of normal childbirths result in neck injuries to the baby. Furthermore, according to an OSHA study 40 percent of all children fall on their head before their first birthday. These results indicate even more reasons to take your child to regular chiropractic check-ups.
Dr. Adam Nachmias has more than 26 years experience of chiropractic care and knows exactly how to treat your beloved child. He will discover possible subluxations after one examination / consultation only, and will set up a customized treatment plan for your child. The adjustments performed on a child are very gentle, so there is no need to worry.

Remarkable Chiropractic Research of Anterolisthesis and Traumatic Brain Injury by ChiroFutures

Remarkable Chiropractic Research of Anterolisthesis and Traumatic Brain Injury by ChiroFutures

Remarkable Chiropractic Research of Anterolisthesis and Traumatic Brain Injury by ChiroFuturesIn this issue we want to highlight two different, but remarkable results, from chiropractic research executed by ChiroFutures. The fact that the research is of two totally different conditions, shows the effectiveness of chiropractic care on a broad range of symptoms.

Study 1.
Reduction in Cervical Anterolisthesis & Pain in a 52-Year-Old Female Using Chiropractic BioPhysics® Technique

Objective: The purpose of this study is to report on the structural and symptomatic improvements made in a patient with a cervical spondylolisthesis using Chiropractic BioPhysics® technique.

Clinical Features: A 52-year-old female presented for chiropractic care with frequent and severe neck pain, neck stiffness, and pain in the upper back.  A neutral lateral cervical x-ray displayed anterolisthesis at C4-C5 measuring 2.4mm (ideal is 0mm). Also present was an anterior head translation measuring 19.66mm (ideal is 0mm) and an absolute rotational angle from C2-C7 measuring -22.8° (ideal is -42°).

Intervention and Outcomes: The patient received chiropractic care 30 times over 3 months using Chiropractic BioPhysics® technique protocols. Follow-up examination revealed that the patient achieved a correction of her C4-C5 spondylolisthesis from 2.4mm to 0.7mm. Her anterior head translation was reduced from 19.6mm to 9.0mm, and the absolute rotational angle from C2-C7 improved from -22.8° to -26°. The patient also reported a resolution of her pain, stiffness, tension, and swelling symptoms.

Conclusion: This case study demonstrates the successful reduction of cervical spondylolisthesis and improvement of sagittal spinal alignment and cervical lordosis in a 52-year-old female with cervicothoracic pain and postural abnormalities using Chiropractic BioPhysics® technique.  Further research is suggested for either a case series or clinical trial to see how conservative chiropractic care can negate the need for surgical intervention of cervical spondylolisthesis.

Study 2.
Improvement Following Chiropractic Care in an 11-year-old Male with Traumatic Brain Injury

Objective: To describe the chiropractic care of a child with difficulties in upper and lower extremity motor control.

Clinical Features: An 11-yr-old male presented for chiropractic care with a history of traumatic brain injury (TBI) as a result of a motor vehicle collision 5 years prior. The patient lacked proper motor control and use of his left hand and lacked balance and co-ordination of the lower extremities. The patient had difficulties with speech and was unable to find balance on a global wobble board and took 5 minutes to find balance on a uniplanar wobble board and held it for 5 seconds.

Intervention and Outcome: The patient received chiropractic adjustments characterized as high velocity, low amplitude (HVLA) thrust type known as Diversified and Thompson Technique. In addition to adjustments, neuromuscular re-education was utilized to provide increased coordination for left upper extremities and proprioception for lower extremities. The patient received care over a period of 8 months consisting of 28 visits. As a result of the care he received, the patient demonstrated improved coordination, is able to balance on the global wobble board, is better able to enunciate words and has an improved quality of life.

Conclusion: This case report provides supporting evidence on the effectiveness of chiropractic care in children with traumatic brain injury.
