Chiropractic: Why all the Confusion, Misunderstanding and Misconceptions?

 

Rob Hutchings

 

When you have decided to consult a chiropractor, and you tell some friends and family about your decision, more often than not, at least one person you tell will express misgivings about that choice. You may hear statements such as the following: “Stay away from ‘bone crunchers!” “They are not scientific.” “I’ve heard chiroprac...

Yoga For Kids

Posted by samfordchiro@gmail.com on September 1, 2015 at 1:25 AM Comments comments (0)

A 10-year-old boy enters the children’s yoga class I’m teaching. He is large for his age, chunky in the middle, tall, clumsy and loud. He makes up stories about his name and the other boys in the class. He interrupts me incessantly. The lead teacher keeps apologizing for him. She rolls her eyes, telling him to shush and sit down. I tell her the noise doesn’t bother me. They are okay, and so am I.

 

I have brought a brown bag with an ear of corn hidden inside...

Express Delivery

Posted by samfordchiro@gmail.com on August 17, 2015 at 1:00 AM Comments comments (0)

 

Not every labor is a marathon; some take only a few hours. But are these so-called precipitous births really abnormal, or are they more common than we think?

 

Soon after I began assembling a bed frame, which I thought would be a good labor project, my contractions started. I was excited, and decided to time them. The clock showed 1:22 p.m. After having two waves about five minutes apart, I shared the news with Gus, my husband, so we coulad give our midwives an e...

On Language Development Imagination Is More Important than Knowledge

Posted by samfordchiro@gmail.com on August 3, 2015 at 1:05 AM Comments comments (0)

From the seventh month in utero, before a child is born, every word the mother says brings about a muscular response in the infant. A word is just a vibration of sound, and each vibration is called a phoneme. From the very beginning, there is this intimate connection between body, body movement, the brain and the formation of word structures. By the time the child is born in the world, this muscular response is myelinated—locked in as a permanent pattern.

 

For the firs...

Very young children come down with colds. Agreement with this statement is universal among parents, pediatricians, drug makers, and even the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). But there is less agreement over whether or not medicine is helpful to little ones suffering from a cold.

 

“It’s important to point out that these medicines are safe and effective when used as directed…” said Linda A. Suydam, president of the Consumer Healthcare Products Associ...

Healthy Children and Chiropractic

Providing health care services to children involves a dimension not often encountered in rendering care to adults. Not only must the child's needs and concerns be addressed, but those of the child's parents as well. The child doesn't have educational bias, is usually simple to care for, and will respond immediately to physiologic changes that enhance life expression. The parents may require more attention to further their knowledge and understanding of health. This article addres...

A wellness approach to children

Posted by samfordchiro@gmail.com on May 10, 2015 at 8:15 PM Comments comments (0)

In raising healthy children, it’s not enough to just focus on the physical aspect of health. To be truly healthy, a child’s emotional health must be nurtured and strengthened. Developing a mental attitude of wellness is also essential. When we adopt an attitude of wellness, we take on a belief that being well is a natural, normal state. Our goal is to have outstanding, vibrant health, not just to be free of disease. With a wellness attitude, we know that we have control over our o...

Hop, Skip and Jump: Physical Activity Molded our Past. Can it Shape our Future?

Posted by samfordchiro@gmail.com on May 4, 2015 at 1:30 AM Comments comments (0)

Once upon a time, children were almost never indoors, preferring to play outside. Nor were they ever still for long. They skipped and galloped, climbed trees, jumped rope, played hopscotch and rode their bicycles for blocks. They ran screaming through each other’s yards and even down the middle of the streets.

 

They played touch football, hide-and-seek and tag. They raced each other to the sliding board and swingset, chased butterflies and got filthy rolling around on ...

Understanding and Applying the Intelligence of Play

Posted by samfordchiro@gmail.com on April 27, 2015 at 1:30 AM Comments comments (0)

Nurture the soil, and the seed grows fully with little attention. Neglect the soil, and the seed’s development is compromised at every step.

 

Children are seeds. We are the soil, but we are often blind to our own lack of mentored development. In our semi-blind state we do unto others what was done, or more often, not done to us—repeating the cycle, generation after generation.

 

We are at a tipping point—personally, culturally and globally....
