A Day full of kids

Great day in the office today.  I had a ton of my maintenance kids in the office for their adjustments.  The great thing about treating kids is that they get well.  And, they get well quickly.  Those in the office today were mainly coming in initially for sinus, ear or Chronic Upper respiratory infections.   I had my New Patient Orientation Class last night and discussed how I don’t treat ear infections or bedwetting or even headaches.  As a Chiropractor, I treat the cause of the problem not the symptom.  Headaches aren’t typically a pain in the head.  They’re usually a referred pain or result of something being “off” such as an upper cervical spine misalignment or even a TMJ (Jaw) misalignment.  Same with kids: ear infections are usually a result of a mechanical blockage or poor drainage of the ear.  Reduce the blockage and you reduce the ear problems.  I’m always amazed at how much healthier kids are with regular adjustments.  I treat my kids on a regular basis.  My oldest is 3 and never been on antibiotics.  I’m not against antibiotics but I am against the overprescription of them.  When and if my daughters ever need them, they will work for them because they’ve not had to use them in the past.
