Every child should be checked for subluxation. It’s painless and safe.
A Patient asked me a typical question the other day. "What caused my neck problem?" He was shocked to discover that the reason why many individuals suffer from neurological problems and health challenges as adults are from subluxations that were caused during the birth process. Signs and symptoms typically don't show up until later in life, yet rob the individual of their health, vitality, and wellness.
Dr. Godfrey Gutman, medical researcher, discovered that more than 80% of the infants that he examined shortly after birth were suffering from injuries to the cervical spine (the neck), causing all types of health problems.
"If a child is subluxated at birth, that child's perception of the world is distorted and their ability to respond to the world is compromised. This has severe implications throughout the life of that child! We are dealing with the single most devastating event in most individuals' lives, it's really that important. Every child should be checked for subluxations as soon as possible after birth." Dr. Christopher Kent.
Dr. Towbin, of the Harvard Medical School's pathology department, found that "the birth process, even under optimal conditions is potentially a traumatic, crippling event. Spinal cord and brain stem injuries occur often during the process of birth but frequently escape diagnosis."
As a chiropractor, we would much rather examine and adjust every newborn than to have to deal with a lifetime of health problems. We would rather adjust the newborn than wait 26 years and learn that the young person developed gall bladder disease in the areas where the nerve tissue was injured and compromised since birth.
At the Rockefeller Institute, Dr. Arpad DeNagy determined that interference to the nervous system, due to spinal stress, resulted in serious damage within a short period of time. He recommends that stabilizing bio-mechanical care should begin as soon after birth as possible. Furthermore, he indicated that this spinal stress tragedy may take sixty years to develop fully!
"The entire birth process, from conception and pregnancy to delivery and post-delivery, can lay the foundation for later mental and physical disease. We now know that the trauma surrounding the birth process is engraved as imprints in the developing nervous system of the fetus and newborn." Arthur Janov, Ph.D.
