If Your Child Has Autism, You Haven’t Tried Everything, Yet.

According to the CDC, did you know that 1 in 88 kids have been identified with an autism spectrum disorder (ASD)? Given that a little over 4 million kids are born in the US each year, that’s about 45 thousand kids a year are diagnosed with Autism or other similarly related developmental disabilities! A staggering number that seems to be growing exponentially over the last 20 years. Till now, studies have been inconclusive as to why the rapid onslaught. Theories range anywhere from air pollution to vaccinations to traumatic births. Because really, it wouldn’t make sense that ALL of those things could possibly contribute to it (sarcasm). Honestly, I do not believe that there is one cause, but I do know that children under Upper Cervical Care, show a marked improvement in every case.

When you come into my office, there is never any guarantee that you’ll see a resolution of any of your symptoms. In fact, I try to make it clear that I don’t treat symptoms at all, because I don’t. I simply look for interruptions of the nervous system, the system that regulates and controls EVERYTHING in the body, and do all I can to remove them. After that, it’s all up to you buddy. And believe me,when your body can communicate effectively, “miracles” happen.

As a doctor that looks exclusively at the function of your bodies neural network (nervous system), it’s both gratifying and frustrating all at the same time. It’s gratifying to see someone walk after years of not having the ability. It’s gratifying to see a 3 year old that hasn’t slept through the night once since she was born to finally do so following one adjustment. It’s gratifying to see seemingly unrelated health conditions find a resolution with Upper Cervical chiropractic. Yet it’s frustrating to see so many parents struggling with their autistic child and the only solution they have been given is a dose of Adderall.

I know, going to a chiropractor to help autism or any other developmental disorder is probably off your radar. Right? I understand, but why not give it a try? Again, there are no guarantees, but while the rest of the world is trying to understand autism, we’re seeing a glimmer of hope.
