I tend to see patients like me. When I had little kids, little kids were more a part of my practice. Now that I'm a senior, may practice is mostly seniors. However, little kids are showing up around my house again, so I thought a brush up with a pediatrics seminar was appropriate.
Last weekend, Mandy and I traveled to Moses Lake and I attended a seminar on the effects of chiropractic on pregnancy and little kids. I'm reminded of some of the amazing things I've seen with children. One two year old was put on constant antibiotics as prophylactic for his ear infections. After one adjustment, his ear quit hurting. A few adjustments and he no longer had infections.
A five year old still was not potty trained. A couple of adjustments and a couple of weeks and he felt the urge to go to the bathroom for the first time in his life.
I've also seen bed-wetters improve. Children who were grumpy often would improve - probably because they felt better. Children often get headaches and respond like adults.
I especially enjoy seeing children whose eyes are dull become bright and sparkly.
Of course the best care, in my opinion, is regular checkups to make sure children are subluxation free rather than waiting for problems to develop.
