The International Chiropractic Pediatric Association (ICPA) has published research and documented that spinal manipulative therapy is safe and successful in treating children of all ages. Acute conditions can be the result of trauma during childbirth, sports injuries and/or accidents.
It is hypothesized that the birthing methods practiced in western society often directly cause many of the developmental challenges and other issues faced by children. In many cases, children born with the assistance of forceps, suction or via Cesarean or any other forcibly invasive procedure which uses the head as leverage to remove the child from the womb will experience some form of Hatcher-Murphy Subluxation (HMS).
The Whole Health Partners team regularly identifies and treats children with HMS who exhibit symptoms such as colic, asthma, nursing difficulties, headaches, ear infections, poor sleep and fussiness / irritability to name a few. Dr. Murphy has also had resounding success in treating children with developmental delays such as Autism, Asperger’s, ADD and ADHD, Dyspraxia, PDD, and Speech Apraxia.
Since these conditions may have many root causes, the doctors at Whole Health Partners will thoroughly examine your child on their first visit to determine the basis of your child’s problem.
