Infant Re-flux and Chiropractic Pediatrics

Recently our office had a little girl (Ramsey), 8 weeks old, in because she had  reflux (in mom’s words “projectile vomiting”) after every feeding.Acid Reflux  & Chiropractic Care

The Ramsey’s pediatrician had prescribed anti-reflux medication (Zantac) which seemed to have no effect. So “Mom” decided to try chiropractic care for Ramsey.

Upon going through the infant history on birth process, medications, and 8 weeks of history. We preformed an exam on her spinal function and motion. Little Ramsey handled the exam well. With mom’s permission, Dr. Trace adjusted 2 vertebra using an infant ICPA techniques, taught to him by Dr. Larry Webster. After adjusting her, we scheduled a return visit in 4 days.

Upon returning to the office, Mom reported that Ramsey had “No reflux” the next day and only 1 episode each of the following 2 days. Mom also commented this was the best weekend Ramsey had since she came home. Dr. Trace checked her again and adjusted once more. Ramsey was then scheduled in 3 days later.

On the third visit, Mom reported that Ramsey had not re-fluxed or vomited at all and she was doing great.

Chiropractic care is the focus on the relationships between the body’s spine, nervous system, interference of the nervous system – and the patient’s health. Chiropractors believe that health can be improved and preserved by making adjustments to the spine to relieve nervous system interference. They do not prescribe drugs or perform surgical procedures.

Health is a function of the body when the body is clear of the three stresses: chemical, emotional, & mechanical.

Note from Dr. Trace: “Caring for children is the greatest reward for a chiropractor, because  helping a child with asthma, crawling, reflux, bed wetting, etc., helps the child reach their maximum human potential. Maximum human potential should be the goal of every healthcare provider for their patients.”

Yours in Health,

Dr. Trace Palmer
