Researching Chiropractic: Gastroesophageal Reflux & Behavioral Issues
There seems to be no limit to the health problems that respond to chiropractic care. How many people suffering, on drugs, facing a life of limitation could be helped by chiropractic care?
Probably most of them.
Do you know anyone suffering from the following issues? Chiropractic care can help – here’s the proof!
Gastroesophageal reflux disease
Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) is common during the first year of life, peaking at 4 months of age. In this case, a 4-month-old baby girl with gastro-esophageal reflux disease and plagiocephaly, a flattening of parts of the skull, was brought by her mother for chiropractic care. The mother reported the child had multiple episodes of reflux and vomiting per day.
Subluxations were found and adjusted in the child’s neck (C2 and C4 vertebrae), lower lumbar (L4) vertebra, and sacroiliac joints.
The day after the first chiropractic visit that included spinal and cranial care the mother reported that her daughter had a large bowel movement and a longer than normal sleep. The child continued to receive chiropractic care twice a week for two weeks and then once a week for the next four weeks. By the second visit, the mother reported that the vomiting and reflux had decreased. Over the next 3 weeks, both the number of episodes per day and the number of days with vomiting and reflux decreased. By three weeks of care, the child had no more reflux or vomiting. In addition, her skull flattening had disappeared
Improved behavior in a 10-year-old boy
A 10-year-old boy would exhibit dramatic behavioral changes from a calm manner to suddenly becoming violent. He was also reported to have difficulty sleeping due to emotional detachment disorder and frequently suffered from panic attacks. His behavioral instability caused him to be suspended from school.
He was brought in for chiropractic care. He received adjustments to correct upper cervical, thoracic and lumbopelvic subluxations. His behavior and violent outbursts dramatically improved after 8 chiropractic adjustments. Further improvements were noticed with sleep and anxiety
Reflux, irritability, and more in 7-month-old boys
This is the case of two seven-month-old premature fraternal twin boys with chronic reflux, breastfeeding difficulties, general irritability, excessive crying, skull distortion, and premature closing of the cranial sutures.
The children received spinal and cranial adjustments. After 8 weeks of chiropractic care, the mother reported a decrease in the severity of the twins’ reflux, lessened breastfeeding difficulties, and decreased irritability. After 16 weeks of chiropractic care, the twins’ reflux had ceased and their cranial symmetry had markedly improved.
