You can’t “feel” Subluxation. You feel only its effects.


You can’t “feel” Subluxation. You feel only its effects.
Dr. Steinle educates patients about subluxation’s and the many different effects it may have on their bodies.
Pain is the last thing to show up after many months or years of health decline.
All too frequently, by the time pain finally does show up, the spine already has permanent deterioration and damage.

Chiropractic For Infants?

Dr. Steinle adjusting Grace

When our adult patients see children getting adjusted in our clinic they sometimes ask, “Why is that kid being adjusted?  Do they have problems?”

The answer is that sometimes they do.  Bed wetting, asthma, breathing difficulties, collic and allergies are all symptoms we’ve seen improve or go away in children under chiropractic treatment.

However many parents bring their childen in to get adjusted not for a particular health condition but because they want their children to enjoy the same health benefits that they experienced themselves.

The nervous system is the “master control system of the body.”  When children are learning to walk, ride a bike, play sports, etc…  falls are common.  These accidents can cause subluxations (joint inflammation and restrictions) in the spine that interfere with the communication between the child’s brain and body.  When these subluxations exist in a child it limits his or her ability to be healthy.

Children get adjusted to maximize their neural plasticity (brain and nerve development) and enhance their overall health and wellbeing.

Here is a testimonial from one of our mother patients.

“I started seeing Dr. Jason for back issues that developed after the birth of my first daughter. Not only did he help resolve my issues, he also treated my newborn and I saw enormous improvement in the challenges she was having. As an added bonus, she always slept well the night after her treatments! I have continued to see Dr. Jason through the birth of a second child. I highly recommend a visit with Dr. Jason, he is very skilled and his professionalism and warm personality will put anyone at ease.”

Please feel welcome to call us if you have questions about your child and whether or not he/she may benefit from chiropractic treatment.

Children, Chiropractic and ADHD

Here is an interesting paper regarding children diagnosed with ADHD benefitting from chiropractic treatment.  In this study the children demonstrated an average of a 53% reduction in ADHD symptoms based on parent completed surveys.  With chiropractic treatment three of the nine children were no longer on ADHD medications due to symptom improvement and two were on decreased doses.  That means 55% of the children had a reduction and or elimination of ADHD medication use.  Although this is a small study population of children the results are significant.  We look forward to more studies like this being completed. If you have a child that suffers from ADHD and would like to discuss conservative treatment options please give us a call. We look forward to hearing from you!

Prospective   Cohort of ADHD Patients Under Chiropractic Care

Issue #04, ADD/ADHD, Author Joel Alcantara, D.C., MPH, Author Jim Davis, DC

Introduction: Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) is a common   behavioral disorder of childhood. Prevalence estimates indicate that between   3-11 percent of children are affected by this disorder 1.   The diagnosis of ADHD is based on a subjective evaluation of the core   symptoms of impulsivity, inattention, and motor overactivity 2.   The most well-studied and effective medical treatments have been   psychostimulants such as methylphenidate and dextroamphetamine 3.   Given the controversy with respect to the dubious diagnosis of ADHD and the   questionable effectiveness and safety of psychotropic medication in this   pediatric population; parents are spurred to consider “alternative” forms of   treatment for their child with a diagnosis of ADHD. Parallel to the increase   use of complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) in adults, CAM use in   children has also become more prevalent 4.Chiropractic,   with its holistic and conservative approach to patient care has become the   most popular choice of all the alternative therapies. Anecdotes and   testimonials abound on the success chiropractic care in patients with ADHD   but the scientific literature is virtually non-existent in the documentation   of such successes. To the best of our knowledge, we are only aware of the following.   In a single subject research design (N=7), Giesen et.al. 5  found five of the seven children showed improvement in mean behavioral scores   from placebo care to chiropractic treatment, four of the seven demonstrated   improvement in arousal levels, and the improvement in the group as a whole   was highly significant. Agreement between tests was also high in this study.   For all seven children, three of the four principal tests used to detect   improvement (i.e., parent ratings of activity, motion recorder scores,   electrodermal measures, and X-rays of spinal distortions) were in agreement   either positively or negatively.Recently,   Bastecki et.al. 6  described the successful chiropractic care (i.e., symptom improvement with   medical withdrawal of medication) of a 5-yr-old male with ADHD and facial   ticks. Pre-treatment and comparative cervical spine radiographs reveal   changes from a 12° kyphosis (C2-C7) to a 32° lordosis. Bastecki et.al.   concluded that an improvement in cervical lordosis in patients with ADHD may   be a desirable outcome.To   further contribute to the knowledgebase on the conservative care of patients   with ADHD, we present the successful chiropractic care of patients with a   diagnosis of ADHD.Methods: A prospective cohort of pediatric patients comprised the   study population. Inclusion criteria required a medical diagnosis of ADHD and   that spinal adjustments were not contraindicated. The patient population   underwent chiropractic care that may be characterized as a combination   Gonstead Technique 7   and a nutritional supplementation program 8.   Main outcome measure was a survey instrument for parents and teachers of ADHD   patients to score a patient’s behavior/ performance at home and at school 8.   Additionally, the types of medication prior to, during and following a period   of chiropractic care were noted. Results: Nine patients (8 males and 1 female) comprised the study population.   The average age of the patients was 9.2 years (range: 2–15 years). A parent   for each patient agreed to perform the questionnaire. Although the patients   have variable lengths of care, ADHD symptoms based on parent survey for each   patient demonstrate a steady improvement. Comparison of the initial and   latest parent scoring for ADHD symptoms as a group demonstrated a 53%   reduction. Teacher ratings were available for 4 of the 9 patients. Similarly   to the parent survey, teacher ratings of these 4 patients demonstrated   improvement in ADHD symptoms over time. Comparison of the initial and latest   teacher ADHD symptom scoring demonstrated a 45% reduction. Of 5 patients   under ADHD medication prior to chiropractic care; 3 patients were no longer   on medication due to symptom improvement while the 2 remaining on medication   were at decreased dosages.

Conclusions: The results of this study suggest that patients with ADHD   may benefit from chiropractic care utilizing a combination of fullspine   spinal manipulative therapy and nutritional supplementation. Additionally,   this study provides information vital for higher- level research designs   investigating the effectiveness and safety of chiropractic care in patients   with ADHD.
