    Management of Pediatric Asthma & Enuresis with Probable Traumatic Etiology
    By Trent Bachman, D.C. and Charles Lantz, D.C., PhD.
    The chiropractic management of asthma and enuresis of traumatic etiology in a two-year, ten-month-old male child. In May 1987 at the age of 22 months, the child was medically examined and subsequently diagnosed with asthma. In an attempt to control the asthmatic symptoms, two medications were prescribed, Metaproterenal Syrup and Theodore Sprinkle. On May 20, 1988, the child was seen for chiropractic examination and evaluation and, from that date to August 3, 1991, the child received 28 chiropractic adjustive/manipulative treatments. Dramatic improvement of asthma and enuresis followed chiropractic management. The application of Gonstead adjustive/manipulative therapy and the rationale for the correction of vertebral subluxation complex in the case of childhood asthma and enuresis are discussed.

    Autism [ BACK TO TOP ]  

    Ear Infection, Childhood Autism: Is There a Relationship?
    By Joan Fallon, D.C., F.I.C.C.P.
    The incidence of otitis media in the pediatric population has risen steadily over the last 10 years. Autism, as well, has been steadily on the rise with a 3,000-fold increase in occurrence with pockets of autism located in various places around the U.S. The author hypothesizes that one of the causative factors in the formation of childhood autism is the disruption of the gastro-intestinal mucosa of very young children with recurrent otitis media.

    Pediatric Back Pain: Imaging Considerations
    By Christopher Kent, D.C., F.C.C.I.
    Back pain is a relatively uncommon complaint in children. However, such complaints warrant a thorough investigation. Although the primary responsibility of the chiropractor is to locate and correct vertebral subluxations, it is also imperative that the chiropractor be familiar with conditions which may contraindicate certain adjusting techniques, or conditions where interdisciplinary management is indicated. The selection of appropriate imaging techniques, including plain radiographs, CT, and MRI studies is discussed.

    Managing the Third-T for Successful Labor and Delivery
    By Lisa Connors, D.C., D.I.C.C.P.
    It is a scientific fact that our nervous, endocrine, and immune systems are interconnected. A grand highway of cellular information allows these three systems to continually “talk” to one another, sending important messages back and forth across organs, cells, and DNA. Our thoughts and feelings are part of the mechanisms responsible for activating and deactivating these highways. This article addresses the Third-T in pregnancy and provides methods for managing Third-T concerns for a successful labor and delivery.

    An Effective Drug-Free Approach to Premature Contractions
    By Carol Phillips, D.C.
    Premature contractions is one of the most serious complaints that can affect a pregnant woman. The author suggests that instead of addressing this problem with drugs that can negatively affect the mother and baby, chiropractors can help by correcting the structural deviation which is commonly responsible for this complication. Advice is given on how some simple procedures (which even the partner can learn) can help restore a pregnant woman’s balance and prevent premature birth.

    Blocked Atlantal Nerve Syndrome [ BACK TO TOP ]  

    Blocked Atlantal Nerve Syndrome in Infants and Small Children
    By G. Gutmann
    Three case reports are reviewed to illustrate a syndrome that has so far received far too little attention, which is caused and perpetuated in infants and small children by blocked nerve impulses at the atlas. The clinical picture ranges from central motor impairment and development through idencephalic impairments of vegetative regulatory systems to lowered resistance to infections, especially to ear-, nose-and throat-infections. The theoretical background to this syndrome is indicated. The main factor in the causation concerns the neurophysiological connections between the area of the atlanto-occipital joint and centers in the brain stem. In addition to the case history and the pediatrician’s diagnosis, chiropractic and radiological examination are of decisive importance for the diagnosis of this syndrome. If the indications are correctly observed, chiropractic can often bring about amazingly successful results because the therapy is a causal one.

    Linking Craniocervical Subluxation in Infants with Breastfeeding Difficulties
    By Sharon Vallone, D.C.
    Two case studies of infants ranging in age from 2 days to 4 months with inability to breast-feed successfully secondary to apparent decreased mandibular excursion. Intraoral evaluation and chiropractic analysis proved valuable in ruling out pathology and demonstrating upper cervical and cranial subluxation resulting in dysfunction, biomechanics of the temporamandibular joint restricting excursion of the mandible. Correction of subluxation helped restore natural suckling patterns for these infants.

    By Tracy Barnes, D.C., D.I.C.C.P.
    The author shares a touching story of a little girl with cancer that she met at a camp for children with cancer. She feels that chiropractors, as primary care providers, should be knowledgeable about this disease because cancer is the second leading cause of death in children. She describes some of the red flags of pediatric cancer and what chiropractors should do if they have any cause for concern because a child’s life depends upon early diagnosis and treatment.

    Chiropractic Care of the Child Athlete
    By Warren Bruhl, D.C., D.I.C.C.P.
    Many people have the misconception that because a child’s body is flexible, he or she does not suffer the same trauma during sports as adults and therefore does not need chiropractic care. What they don’t understand is that an adult’s stiff and achy joints may be the result of a sports trauma suffered during their youth. In this article, the author explains the importance of understanding the child’s developing spine and the most frequent injuries in child athletes. He also give suggestions on what the DC needs to find out when taking the history, what to look for during examination, diagnostic work-up, and care protocols.

    Assessing Upper Cervical Subluxations in Infants Under Six Months: Utilizing the Reverse Fencer Response
    By Maxine McMullen, D.C., F.I.C.C.P.
    This evaluation has been based on the idea of the Fencer Reflex. The basic Fencer response is described more frequently in the literature as the Tonic Neck Reflex. This reflex may be elicited at birth, but is usually most remarkable after the second months and disappears at six months. Persistence beyond that time or the ability to elicit the response every time it is evoked should be considered abnormal and possibly indicative of major cerebral damage. This article gives the procedure, response, and discussion of the reverse Fencer response.

    Vaccination [ BACK TO TOP ]  

    Shaken Baby Syndrome or Vaccine Induced Encephalitis?
    By Harold Buttram, M.D. and F. Edward Yazbak, M.D.
    In November 1997 little Baby Alan, 10 weeks old, died from complications following 6 vaccinations (including Dpt, Hib, OBV and hepatitis B) given on one day. His father, Dr. Alan Yurko, was accused of Shaken Baby Syndrome, found guilty of murder, and is now serving a life sentence without parole. During the extremely short trial, the possibility that the baby’s complications may have been vaccine-related was never mentioned – why? This paper will help you understand what can happen when a baby, with the medical conditions that Baby Alan had, gets the DPT vaccination and how mis-diagnosis can result in tragedy.

    Immunization: A Closer Look
    By Ashley Cleveland, D.C. and Bradley David Eck, D.C.
    Immunization has been heralded by the medical establishment as the sole force responsible for declining rates/disappearances of certain formerly problematic human diseases. Likewise, there are those who recognize a stretch of logic in assuming a direct cause and effect relationship between mass immunization and falling rates of infections, and who point to serious adverse reactions in children following the administration of childhood vaccinations as an indication that this medical intervention may not be the savior of humanity. The picture here is clouded by politics, power, and personal tragedies, and it is time to take an honest look at the issues surrounding the health of our children and those policies that determine the care they receive.

    This article is a commentary on a “Survey of American Chiropractors’ Attidue to Immunization.” The authors of the survey believe that there is scientific value to vaccinations even though the survey showed that a significant number of chiropractors are anti-immunizations. Dr. Scheibner’s evidence is otherwise – vaccines do not immunize; the harmful side effects can lead to degenerative diseases later in life; all facts documented in the medical literature but ignored or excluded from safety calculations by the proponents of vaccines.
