My Baby Won't Nurse!

Sometimes what comes naturally... doesn't.

After a baby's first breath, the next thing it looks for is a breast. It happens quite naturally thousands of times a day. Except when it doesn't. Several such cases have been documented in the Journal of Manipulative Physiological Therapeutics:


A three-week-old girl had colic, flatulence and outbursts of crying for almost three weeks. A chiropractic examination revealed left foot rotation, folded left ear, restricted neck motion and jaw imbalance. Chiropractic care and CranioSacral therapy was begun. "We suspected that her posture in the womb was the contributing factor to child's physical asymmetry and subluxation pattern," observed the chiropractor. "By the fourth week of adjustments the baby began to breast-feed from both breasts."

Vaccination Effects

A 15-day old emaciated male infant, suffering from colic, crying constantly and unable to breastfeed since birth was taken to the chiropractor. The mother observed that her baby would "shake, scream and vomit during and after feeding." The infant had been given a Hepatitis B vaccination within hours after birth. After the first adjustment, there was a significant reduction of crying, screaming and shaking. When the baby had been symptom-free for five days he was given another Hepatitis B shot and the original symptoms returned.

Cervical Subluxation

A 6-month-old boy with an aversion to suckling was evaluated in a chiropractic practice. An examination revealed asymmetry and fixation in the neck, signs of cervical subluxations. The suckling intolerance resolved immediately after the first visit and did not return.

Your baby can't tell you, "my neck hurts" or "my stomach isn't working right." That's why newborns deserve a chiropractic checkup to make sure their nervous systems aren't compromised from the birth process and a Nutrition Response Testing Analysis to identify any specific nutrients their developing bodies are lacking.

Why Chiropractic is the Best Solution for Sciatica Pain

Sciatica and chiropracticSciatica and chiropractic
Sciatica pain is often so debilitating that it forces people to miss work and other normal activities.  Of all patients with low-back pain, sciatica patients have the highest level of disability (1).  In fact, patients with sciatica are disabled for an average of 72 days according to Norwegian public-health records.
Fortunately, a recent study offers hope to sciatica patients: chiropractic care can speed the recovery from sciatica flare ups and allow patients to return to work sooner (2).

The study evaluated 44 Norwegian workers after they came to the hospital with severe sciatica pain. Most of those patients had been experiencing pain for three or more weeks prior to their hospital visit.
The hospital chiropractor examined each patient to evaluate his/her posture and gait, range of motion, and palpation of the lumbar spine.

The chiropractic then performed various joint adjustments to the spine and other limbs that had been injured through patients compensating for pain. Ice treatment was also used to relieve soft tissue soreness.Patients were treated daily in the hospital and later three times a week for the first two weeks. Some patients needed additional follow-up treatment but typically did not exceed 14 treatments.

In matter of 21 days, 91% of patients returned to work full-time. Two patients returned to work part time. Researchers concluded this study demonstrates the potent benefits of collaboration between chiropractors and orthopedic surgeons. Chiropractic care can put an end to your sciatica pain so you can begin living your life fully again.
