“It is smarter to raise healthy children than repair damaged adults!”

The current state of health for children in the United States, (the world’s wealthiest nation with the world’s most expensive healthcare system), is currently reaching scandalous proportions.
Here is just a small sampling of this disturbing trend:
- A staggering 400% increase in childhood asthma
- Highest infant mortality rate (industrialized world)
- 1 in 6 children now have a neurological disorder (ADD, ADHD, Dyslexia, Learning Disability, etc.)
- 1 in 160 children now have autism
- 5,000 to 10,000 children die each year from SIDS
- A five-fold increase in infant food allergies
- A 54% increase in childhood obesity
- Childhood Diabetes rates are skyrocketing
- 9 million children are now being prescribed neuro-trophic (anti-anxiety) drugs
- The frequency of autoimmune diseases in children right now is higher than it has ever been in the history of medicine! Diseases such as Juvenile Rheumatoid Arthritis, Juvenile Diabetes, Pediatric Asthma, Pediatric Crohn’s Disease (inflammation and ulceration of the bowel), Guillain-Barre Syndrome (progressive muscle weakness) and many others are skyrocketing with a perplexed and sometimes indifferent medical community, freely admitting that they are “baffled”.
With no place to turn, families are increasingly calling out for help. For millions of families all over the world, Chiropractic is answering that call and coming to the rescue. We hope you will join this wellness revolution and become part of our Chiropractic family.
Dr. Michael Norman is dedicated to helping infants and children reach their highest potential and live happy and healthy lives. Throughout pregnancy, birth and childhood, the chiropractic lifestyle offers your family a solid foundation for wellness.
Every day in his practice, parents bring their children to Dr. Norman to ensure that their bodies are growing and developing properly. This only occurs when proper nerve flow is traveling to every cell, tissue and organ in their bodies. Through specific, gentle adjustments, counseling on proper diet, exercise, proper sleep and posture, Chiropractic can help you raise a healthy child whose body is structurally and functionally sound. Your child will also learn great drug-free health habits at an early age, which will be invaluable to him or her as an adult.
Extremely safe and effective, Chiropractic can make a huge difference in the life of a child that you know. After starting Chiropractic, many parents (and even their teachers!) often report that their children seem much healthier than other kids their age.
What happens at a typical Pediatric Chiropractic Check-up?
Chiropractors are trained to detect and correct any areas of the spine that have become “subluxated,” or misaligned. These Subluxations literally impede the body’s communication with the brain and can cause numerous health problems seen in infants and children. Dr. Norman carefully examines a child’s spine, checks their posture and will take an x-ray, if necessary, to best care for that child. If in fact, the child does have a Subluxation present in their spine, a specific, gentle, (and fun to the child!) adjustment is given to correct the Subluxation and relieve the harmful stress and interruption in the child’s nervous system.
Is Chiropractic safe for Infants and Children?
Doctors of Chiropractic have been caring for children for well over 100 years. Chiropractic adjusting techniques are modified to fit a child’s size, weight and unique spinal problem. An adjustment on a child is extremely gentle, with the use of only slight pressure to correct Subluxations. Despite much misinformation generated by the medical community, (mainly for economic purposes), researchers in the United States, Denmark, Germany and Australia continue to show the wonderful success, safety and effectiveness of Chiropractic care for virtually every childhood illness or problem.
How do you feel about Childhood Vaccines?
The current U.S. vaccine schedule requires 24 vaccines by 6 months of age; 36 by 18 months and at least 68 by 11-12 years! There is no proof that a child’s immature immune system can handle this violent chemical assault. Increasingly, the very real possibility is surfacing that we are trading harmless childhood diseases for life-long chronic and degenerative diseases. Our office is committed to educating families so they can make an informed choice for themselves on how to best care for their children; one which is based on understanding, not fear tactics.
What are the indicators for the necessity of an Infant or Child Spinal Check-up?
If you want your family to have all the benefits of a conservative, drug-free approach to healthcare, my recommendation is just after birth! However, I have also included a brief summary of some common infancy and childhood conditions which respond very well to Chiropractic:
- Athletics/Sports Participation
- Bad Posture
- Bed Wetting
- Breastfeeding Problems
- Cold/Flu Symptoms
- Difficulty Sleeping
- Digestive Problems
- Ear Infections
- Falling Frequently
- Headaches or Migraines
- Learning Disorders
- Lowered Immune System
- Restricted Movement of Head or Neck
- Sinus Problems
- Speech Disorders
- Tourette’s Syndrome
- Vaccine Injuries
- Vision Problems
Thank you for considering Chiropractic for your health needs. I would like to leave you with something to think about.
When there is an epidemic of say, influenza, in a school and 14 out of 200 kids get sick, who gets studied?
The answer, of course, is that the sick kids get studied. They get studied by the county health district, and the health district accumulates its data and then tells the newspapers and media about the epidemic of sickness and everybody then flocks down to see their doctor to get “vaccinated.”
Would it not be more appropriate to study the 186 kids that did not get sick?
