March 2014: Kids and Chiropractic Care
At Besso Clinic, we know the joy, laughter, and tremendous blessings that having a child brings. We also know that it requires the highest level of responsibility to raise a capable, competent, compassionate little person and to set them up for their greatest success in life.
As your healthcare provider, we want to share with you how Chiropractic care can have a great impact on your children’s future health and well-being.
“But it’s just a little fall… Should I be concerned?” We hear this all the time from parents in our office. The fact is, the same falls and spills you had as a kid that are now contributing to your discomfort in adulthood are the same ones that can potentially haunt your child as they get older.
From birth to adult, the trauma our bodies go through can contribute to:
-vision problems -ear infections
-asthma/respiratory problems -repeated infections
-sinus infections -allergies
-poor concentration -irritability
-poor posture -mobility issues
Does your child suffer from any of these conditions? If so, now is the time to bring them in.
SUCCESS STORY: Please read the following Success Story written by one of our patients who consulted with Dr. Besso about her son, Jackson.
“Jackson began NUCCA treatment at Besso Clinic at age 2. He was suffering from labored breathing at night and episodes of sleep apnea. At birth he was diagnosed with torticollis (slight neck tilt) so we first sought the advice of a pediatric orthopedic surgeon. By 1 year old his condition was said to be corrected, though he continued to snore loudly and have very broken sleep patterns each night. My husband has asthma, so that was our next pursuit. We tried an inhaler for 2 months with no improvement. Next we tested for allergies-just cats of which we did not have one. We then ended up at an ENT who recommended a tonsillectomy and adenoidectomy, not the choice we wanted to make for our 2 year old. Fortunately, we were informed of The Besso Clinic and decided to come in for a consultation. It was made obvious to us after the first appointment that Jackson suffered from a misalignment- perhaps residual of the torticollis. After the first month we noticed significant improvement in Jackson’s breathing, energy, and overall disposition-he was definitely feeling better!
All the members of The Besso Clinic are extremely professional, and personable. Our experience has been superb!
The best part of Upper Cervical care is that it is HIGHLY effective in treating symptoms and so simple that a 2 year old will cooperate for the office visits. It’s the best and only solution to our concerns. My husband and I are very much advocates of the care given at The Besso Clinic and are hopeful chiropractic care will be the choice of many parents over medication or surgery for their children.” –Emily C.
