After graduating from Purdue University with a bachelor degree in Health Science in 2003 and Logan University with a Doctorate of Chiropractic degree in 2006, I have been treating patients for over six years. During this period I have witnessed many miracles with chiropractic care. My staff and I refer to these as “mini miracles” because we believe that healing from any condition comes from above. Since the power that made the body mends the body, our practice focuses on healing from above-down and inside-out. Every human has a spine, so NO ONE is exempt from receiving chiropractic care. Our practice works with patients from newborns to geriatrics; everyone can experience the healing power of chiropractic.
Pediatric care is one specialty where we inevitably get a lot of questions and inquiry as to what we can help. The top ten reasons children are treated in our office are: birth, colic, allergies, gas pains, stomach issues, constipation, diarrhea, asthma, bed wetting, and ear infections. Each of these areas deals with disruption in nerve flow and improper nerve innervation to the affected organ/area. With pediatric care, gentle palpation is used to determine the area of nerve interference. Once the affected areas are diagnosed, gentle fingertip adjustments are then made to correct the nerve interference. Pediatric adjustments are safe, gentle, and extremely effective. Our ultimate goal is to have the child completely dependent upon their own body without the use of any medications. Over three-fourths of our practice is made up of children, families and maternity patients.
There are virtually endless conditions that chiropractic care can benefit. Nothing is too big or small. One recent rare condition reported to our office was that of a young girl suffering from RSD (reflex sympathetic dystrophy; also known as complex regional pain syndrome). Patients who suffer from RSD have chronic, severe pain. After the first adjustment delivered to the young girl, she experienced immediate relief of pain in her mid-back and was able to sleep through the night for the first time in over a year. With ongoing chiropractic care, she has been able to regain much of her normal lifestyle. We even have plans to get her back to her favorite sport of running!
