My legacy to the World will probably not come as a surprise to those of you who are following my Blog. I would like to be remembered for bringing Health to the World, by making Chiropractic part of mainstream healthcare, for it’s Good Health without drugs or surgery.
I would like to be remembered for bringing the Spinal Alignment check for new born babies, as routine as the “clicky hip” test for Congenitally Dislocated Hips (CDH) is now.
I am privileged to be treating two children, who happen to be twins, who were discharged from hospital after 10 weeks in hospital at their birth because they were born prematurely. They were discharged with a “Let’s wait and see what happens” attitude. Well 3 years later they were diagnosed with cerebral palsy, although one of them and I quote from the medical notes “doesn’t quite fit the typical pattern of CP” but the diagnosis of CP was given in absence of any other label to give them.
Here’s a link explaining why getting a young child checked out with a Chiropractor is a good idea.
What pattern do they fit, well they fit the group of children who have such misaligned spines, that they cannot sit straight, and Why?
Because they were transverse in the uterus when mum went into labour, so the pressure of the contractions went sideways through the spine, bending it like a bent branch in a high wind. Having straightened them up, they are now able to sit unaided, and beginning to walk unaided. I firmly believe that if these children had had a Chiropractic assessment of their spines, this would have been picked up so much earlier and treatment could have been started so much earlier to straighten their crooked spines.
