Autism does not discriminate. It can affect anyone at any time, no matter their race, social standing, or where they live. In fact, 1 out of every 68 children get autism and is found more often in boys than in girls. If you are a parent, the last thing you want to hear is that your child has been diagnosed with autism. But, don’t lose hope. There are many successful stories of children with autism greatly improving after receiving care from an upper cervical chiropractor. Let’s look at just one example.
One Girl’s Experience with Autism
A 3-year-old girl was suffering from headaches and other issues. She was experiencing epilepsy, behavioral problems, acid reflux, vomiting, developmental delays, and problems getting sleep. She had been diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder after she met 5 of the criteria in the Modified Checklist for Autism. Her mother decided to bring her to see an upper cervical chiropractor in order to try to improve her condition.
Her medical history stated she was born prematurely weighing only 2 pounds, 5 ounces. She was born at 28 weeks and had to remain in the hospital ICU for 6 weeks. She came home using oxygen because she was diagnosed with sleep apnea.
Upon examination by the chiropractor, it was discovered that she had tenderness in her neck and spine area. It was determined that she did have a misalignment in the bones of her upper neck. The chiropractor gave her an adjustment and within 10 days her parents noticed a big improvement in her head pain, posture, bowel movements, behavioral issues, and eating habits. After 24 days, her parents described her as still making major progress. After 244 days, her parents very gladly reported the majority of her symptoms were gone and she was much more verbal. She was showing no evidence of a relapse.
How Does Upper Cervical Chiropractic Care Help?
By correcting a misalignment in the upper neck, the stress being put on the brainstem is relieved. This is often all that is needed to see an end to symptoms of autism and other behavioral issues.
