Case Study of Chiropractic Care For Kids
Hello everyone. Dr Brad Ivanchuk here.
I am a Burlington, Ontario chiropractor at Life Chiropractic Centre on Guelph Line.
I am also a Certified Posture Expert and Postural Neurologist with the American Posture Institute and a canfitpro certified Personal Training Specialist, Active Aging Coach and Children’s Fitness Coach.
Today I would like to share a case history with you.
One of my patients who has been with me almost from the start brought in her 4 month old grandson for me to check.
This poor little guy had a traumatic birth
… it was a c-section delivery and the head vacuum was required to extract him from the womb.
He immediately had a torticollis (his head was turned all the way to the right and stuck that way) and he had a large unsightly bump on the top of his head where they attached the head vacuum.
Their family doc said there was nothing to do and that these issues would resolve on their own, but after 3 to 4 months nothing had changed.
Not only had nothing changed, but the little guy could not hold up his head. It would flop frontwards or backwards while being stuck turned to the right.
This is when she desperately reached out and asked if I could help. And I said of course I would take a look and see what I could do.
This little guy required a team effort. I attended to the neck injury and spinal misalignments, and my clinic partner Dr Lynne who is proficient in cranial technique, started to work on his skull to reposition his cranial bones.
After 4 weeks of treatment ( one per week for 4 weeks ), he has made incredible progress.
The torticollis is at least 50% better, his neck muscles are now strong enough that he can hold his own head upright and that unsightly bump on his head is diminishing nicely.
Baby is happy, momma is happy and grandma is happy.
And the reason I am sharing this case history with you today is because what you made have read , or seen, or heard about chiropractic or chiropractic and kids in the media of late, we have been helping kids of all ages including little babies just like this safely and
effectively for over 33 years.
And most of my chiropractic colleagues would tell you the exact same thing.
Remember good posture is by design and not by circumstance.
