What would chiropractic be without children?
The Chiropractic Journal
by Dr. Terry A. Rondberg
June 1, 1992
It is no surprise that many reporters still think of chiropractic as a treatment for senior citizens and blue collar workers. The concept of chiropractic for children is still new and perhaps a bit startling to the general public.
Researchers conclude, "This study has shown that children raised under chiropractic care are less prone to infectious processes such as otitis media and tonsillitis, and that their immune systems are better able to cope with allergens such as pollen, weeds, grasses, etc., as compared to children raised under allopathic care."
Patients seeking pain relief are beginning to see 'the light'

Ruptured discs in her neck and fibromyalgia left Sandy Butler with pain so severe she was bedridden for a year. Today she's back on her feet and credits a little-known treatment with easing her pain and restoring her independence.
The treatment, called cold laser therapy, or low-level light therapy, directs light energy at tissue to help it heal. It was approved by the federal Food and Drug Administration two years ago for the treatment of carpal tunnel syndrome, and chiropractors are increasingly using it to treat back and neck pain, shoulder and knee injuries and other joint pain.
Chiropractic: A Holistic Health Alternative
by Drs. Michael Cocco and Timothy Sweigard
December 8, 2004
Established in 1895, the chiropractic profession has grown to become the third largest health profession in the United States.
Chiropractic comes from a Greek word that means "effective treatment by hand". Chiropractic, as a healing art, is based on the understanding that a normally functioning spine and nervous system is critical to good health. Research has consistently proven that chiropractic gets people better faster with less cost and longer-lasting results than traditional medical care for back and neck pain.

Orthopedic surgeons call for a study of outcomes under the demonstration program.

Chiropractic, osteopathy or manipulative spinal manipulation followed by exercise provides significant relief of back pain symptoms
News-Medical in Medical Study News
A new study of back pain treatments, co-ordinated by researchers at the University of York, has found that spinal manipulation, in the form of chiropractic, osteopathy, or manipulative physiotherapy, followed by a programme of exercise, provides significa
The study, backed by the Medical Research Council (MRC) and co-ordinated by the Trials Unit in the University's Department of Health Sciences, is the biggest of its type ever mounted in the United Kingdom. It involved more than 1,300 patients in 140 GP practices across the UK. The UK Back pain Exercise And Manipulation (UK BEAM) randomised trial assessed the effectiveness of adding different treatments to 'best care' in general practice for patients with lower back pain, one of the most common ailments general practitioners have to treat.

Chiropractic Care Can Help With Ear Infections
Up & Coming Magazine
by Dr. Erik Madsen
January 5, 2005
By the time my daughter May Beth was 13 months old, she'd had 11 ear infections. Each time she was given an antibiotic which caused the ear infection to go away after about a week.
We visited a family chiropractor who began adjusting May Beth. Since that time, she's had one ear infection that lasted less than two days with no medication. Her overall health has been excellent - and she can talk up a storm.
New Way To Diagnose Sciatica May Point To A Different Cause
by Cedars-Sinai Medical Center
February 2, 2005
Researchers have found that new nerve imaging technology called Magnetic Resonance neurography was effective to reveal that a pinched-nerve in the pelvis called piriformis syndrome caused sciatic leg pain in the majority of patients who had failed diagnos
For the last 70 years, a damaged disc in the lower back has been widely accepted as the most common cause of sciatica - a condition where the sciatic nerve is pinched, causing pain to radiate down the leg. As a result, treatment for sciatica is based on diagnosis of a damaged disc, despite the fact that nerves cannot be viewed with routine imaging tests. Consequently, over one million patients each year undergo magnetic resonance imaging scans (MRI) for sciatica and many are told there is no obvious cause for their pain.

She reported some limited success with a prescribed "migraine medication." Incidentally, she had undergone chiropractic care "all her life" until four years ago, when she reportedly outlived her previous chiropractor.
The Sleepless Child
by Claudia Anrig, DC
A child not sleeping through the night, or not receiving adequate rest, is an unreported and often undiscussed topic between health care providers and parents.
Many studies suggest that the lack of sleep, or interruption of sleep, may have numerous adverse effects on the well-being of a child. The lack of sleep may adversely influence the immune system and neurobehavioral changes
