A young mother e-mailed this testimonial with permission to publish anonymously:
I was in the midst of preparations for a big noontime meal, chatting with my sister-in-law as I sliced vegetables. My ten-mouth-old was sitting in her highchair, happily eating little cubes of avocado. Everything was going smoothly and I wasn’t concerned about my crawling baby accidentally being trod underfoot with multiple people in the kitchen. Suddenly, I heard her give a panicked cry. I whirled around to see that the strap that was supposed to go between her legs was broken and she had started to slide out of the bottom of her high chair. Her head was wedged between the tray and the back of her seat. I rushed over and extricated her immediately. She cried for a while; of course she would, poor thing. Not long afterward she went down for her typical afternoon nap. It was a frightening occurrence, but at least it was over.
It appears that most of the weight of this ten month old child was dangling from her head and neck for a short time. This is a tremendous amount of force to be supported by relatively tiny bones and delicate muscles, but this is not an unusual injury. The injury that this child suffered is very similar to many birth injuries, where a baby's head is pulled away from his body. This is particularly prevalent in caesarian section births. This type of pulling can potentially strain muscles, sprain ligaments, stretch the covering of the spinal cord, and injure nerves in the neck, shoulders, and upper arms. Fortunately, babies have a remarkable capability for healing.
The chiropractic adjustment aims to restore the proper relationship between the nerves, muscles, bones, and organs in order to allow the healing process to continue properly. In this case, this baby needed just one treatment to properly heal! The baby and mother are both equally happy after a simple, inexpensive, and effective chiropractic adjustment.
