Colic, earaches, cognition problems, and mobility restrictions: these are just a few of the conditions our Fort Worth chiropractor Dr. Michlin has addressed using Atlas adjustments. Conditions like colic or chronic earaches are often dismissed as “normal” rites of passage for children. In society, it’s “conventional wisdom” that young babies are fussy and young children have may have their tonsils removed due to frequent earaches. Our Fort Worth chiropractor believes differently. Pediatric chiropractic care with Atlas orthogonal and full spine adjustments can help address the underlying nerve interference that may be triggering these health issues. This approach is safe, effective and drug-free.
Fort Worth chiropractor Dr. Michlin is the only Board Certified Atlas Orthogonist in North Texas. This approach focuses on the top vertebra in the spine. Restoring proper alignment to this single vertebra can have a profound impact on the body, alleviating nervous system compression and interference and restoring proper communication between the brain and the body.
Dr. Michlin has safely adjusted patients as young as one hour old. Patients come from all over the country to receive care. When Dr. Michlin was in Atlanta, Georgia, he cared for a six-year old boy, who had only been able to walk on his tippy toes. His cognition was also impaired. While he could understand communication, he struggled to respond.
Dr. Michlin gently adjusted the boy using the Atlas Orthogonal adjustment technique. For the young boy, this gentle adjustment had an immediate effect. His body experienced an immediate release. He stood up and walked flat-footed for the first time in his life. Previously, it had taken Dr. Michlin and a whole team nearly two hours to take three simple x-rays of his neck. Following the adjustment, the young boy even helped Dr. Michlin complete the post-care x-rays in a matter of minutes. He was able to speak in complete sentences for the first time in his life. The change was truly profound.
Your child does not need to be facing as profound a challenge as the six-year-old boy faced to benefit from Atlas orthogonal adjustments. This gentle adjustment is safe for children of all ages. Dr. Michlin recommends adjusting infants shortly after birth. Even a natural birthing process can be traumatic for an infant. The first trauma a child may face is delivery. An OB-GYN can use up to thirty-five pounds of pressure to pull a baby out by the head with the head and neck rotated. While necessary, of course, getting a baby checked for spinal alignment is critical for good health. The cervical spine can become caught up in the umbilical cord. Newborns with a low Apgar scores may benefit from adjustments to reduce nervous system interference and lower the risk for SIDS and colic.
Toddlers and young children can also benefit from periodic adjustments. Chronic ear infections and wetting the bed at night are two possible symptoms of nervous system interference. Gentle adjustments to the Atlas vertebra may help to alleviate nerve interference. Removing this interference allows the brain and body to better communicate.
Proper alignment also stimulates the immune system which interacts directly with the nervous system affecting overall health. Again, obstructions with the signaling pathways between the nervous and the immune system impact the ability to heal adequately. Without the use of surgery or medication, chiropractic care removes these barriers so that the body can properly repair itself at a genetic level and stimulate the immune system fully.
One of Dr. Michlin’s best testaments to better health through Chiropractic care comes from one of his seven year old patients. When he feels a cold or a fever coming on he tells his mother that he needs to go and see “The Bone Doctor.” Mom happens to be a Pediatric Nurse who brings her children to Back To Health Family Chiropractic to help boost the immune system. This boy and his brother do not get the traditional medicines and are very healthy, have never had ear infections, and are living a healthy lifestyle free of dis-ease.
If you are new to pediatric chiropractic care, it’s natural to have questions about what to expect and whether your child is a good candidate for care.
