Chi­ro­prac­tic Care for Chil­dren Receives More Press

Two recent news arti­cles fea­ture chi­ro­prac­tic care for gen­eral well­ness and for chil­dren. One arti­cle from the August 28, 2003 Press & Sun Bul­letin from Bing­ham­ton NY, starts off by fea­tur­ing 5-​year-​old Michael Smolin­sky as he receives his chi­ro­prac­tic adjust­ment. Michael’s mother Joanne, noted that her son started see­ing Dr. McAulliffe three years ago because, after nine months of chronic ear infec­tions, she didn’t know where to turn. All of the pedi­a­tri­cians and ear, nose and throat doc­tors she took her son to couldn’t fig­ure out what was wrong and just kept pre­scrib­ing med­ica­tion that didn’t seem to help.

It con­cerned me,” Joanne Smolin­sky said. “How much med­i­cine can you put into a 2-​year-​old child?” She then recalled that doc­tors sug­gested putting tubes in Michael’s ears to drain excess flu­ids. The idea of putting her son under anes­the­sia scared her, and after talk­ing to her chi­ro­prac­tor she decided to give chi­ro­prac­tic a shot. Her med­ical doc­tors didn’t sup­port the idea, so she couldn’t get a refer­ral for insur­ance pur­poses. After receiv­ing chi­ro­prac­tic every six weeks for three years, Michael has had only one ear infec­tion in that time. He also expe­ri­enced the same good results with dizzy spells that he had been pre­vi­ously having.

Another arti­cle fea­tured in the August 18, 2003 Star Online News of North Car­olina, starts off by say­ing, “In recent years, chi­ro­prac­tors nation­wide have been increas­ingly suc­cess­ful in beat­ing the “back-​pain only” rap with sta­tis­tics and grow­ing tes­ti­mo­ni­als about chi­ro­prac­tic care’s ben­e­fits, for every­thing from stress and fatigue to sinus trou­ble and asthma. And whether young or old, folks in South­east­ern North Car­olina, too, are mak­ing use of what’s renew­ing itself as one of the hottest trends in healthcare.”

This story high­lighted 3-​year-​old Chris­t­ian Kent of Leland. When Chris­t­ian was a mere 6 months old, he devel­oped recur­ring ear infec­tions. These ear infec­tions would clear up with med­i­cine, but they would always return. After a year and numer­ous trips to an ear, nose and throat spe­cial­ist, it was deter­mined that at a year and a half old, he needed tubes in his ears. Cindy Kent, Christian’s mother remem­bers her ini­tial reac­tion, “I thought, ‘Oh no’.” she then con­tin­ued. “Instead, we brought him to the chi­ro­prac­tor and after six adjust­ments, the ear infec­tion was gone.”

Peo­ple should be focused on cor­rect­ing the root of the prob­lem,” said Dr. Reese, a chi­ro­prac­tor inter­viewed for the arti­cle. “This is not an alter­na­tive, but its own dis­tinct form of health care. Peo­ple should have a chi­ro­prac­tor, just like they should have a doc­tor, a den­tist or a mechanic.”
