It is common to get strange looks from people I talk to about taking infants to the chiropractor. I know what is going through their heads: Is it safe? Babies don’t have back pain. Do babies get adjusted the same way I do? These are legitimate concerns for any parent, but to answer them I will begin with the most important question: Why?

  • 10 percent of the newborn babies had perfect, freely mobile skulls or cranial mechanisms.
  • 10 percent had severe trauma to the head, evident even to untrained observers.

  • The remaining 80 percent all had some strain patterns in the cranial mechanism.

Left uncorrected, this trauma continues to impact a baby’s spinal growth and development, reducing the healthy function of her nerve system. This can cause many health challenges later in life that could easily have been prevented.


Birth Trauma

Birth in its many different forms can be quite traumatic. While each birth is unique, there is always a chance that the baby suffers some sort of strain due to a variety of reasons. Even the most natural births can result in trauma that goes undetected. As researcher G. Gutmann has written, “The trauma from the birth process remains an underpublicized and therefore significantly under-treated problem.”


What can cause birth trauma?

  • Very short labor

  • Very long labor

  • Failure of the cervix to dilate

  • Use of Pitocin to strengthen/induce uterine contractions

  • Use of forceps or vacuum extraction

  • Cord around baby’s neck

  • Cesarean delivery (due to lack of progress)

  • Pulling or twisting on the head to deliver the infant’s body

     


Evidence

Beyond the Frymann study detailed above, a Harvard University pathologist, Dr. Abraham Towbin, found evidence of spinal injury common as a result of the birthing process. He also found evidence of spinal injury in many cases of SIDS and infant respiratory conditions.

Birth trauma often causes neurological dysfunction. In fact, a study by Gutmann examining more than 1,000 infants concluded that approximately 80 percent had some form of nerve dysfunction. This is of utmost importance, since 65 percent of neurological development (brain and nerve system) occurs in a child’s first year. During this crucial time it is vital that the nerve system be healthy so the child can grow and develop to her potential.

What can nerve dysfunction from birth trauma look like?

  • trouble breathing

  • reflux/frequent spitting up

  • irritability/colic

  • difficulty nursing (impaired sucking/swallowing or head positioning)

  • balance issues

  • sleeping difficulty

  • delayed developmental milestones

Chiropractic care is focused solely on removing nerve dysfunction (which improves brain-body communication) so a new baby can grow, develop, and function at its highest potential. We as humans were born with an innate ability to heal. Chiropractors minimize the obstructions to that ability.


Spinal Elongation

A baby’s spine lengthens by 50 percent in his first year. At no other time does this growth happen so rapidly, so you want to make sure your baby is in proper alignment, ensuring proper symmetrical growth.

The Hueter-Volkman law states that bones change shape with pressure by slowing bone growth in response to pressure (compression forces). Any spinal misalignment changes the balance of pressure across the spinal bones and can lead to asymmetric bone development. This is the difference between having a spine like a straight, strong oak and having a spine like a crooked tree.

The first year of life is also the time of spinal curvature development. There are curves called lordosis present in your neck and lower back, and curves called kyphosis in your mid-back and sacrum. These spinal curves are necessary for movement, balance, upright posture, protection, and shock absorption. Without being in alignment during this crucial time, a baby’s spinal curves may not develop properly—giving him a poor foundation for later in life.


Optimize the nerve system

The central nerve system consists of the brain and spinal cord, and it processes everything that your body does. Movement, a heartbeat, seeing a baby smile, feeling the sun on your skin, laughing, smelling, creativity—all are coordinated by the brain and spinal cord.

In infants the central nerve system also controls their growth and development. Infancy is the time of greatest brain and proprioceptor (body position sensors) development, so infancy is the time to ensure the health of the nerve system. Chiropractors who take care of babies look for disturbances in their nerve systems that interfere with healthy growth and development.

Remember: If your baby’s spine stays out of balance, it can put tension on the nerve system.


Is it safe for infants to get adjusted?

Yes. Adverse events linked to pediatric chiropractic care are virtually nonexistent, estimated at 1 in 250 million pediatric visits. There is not a single medical procedure safer than that, but I would encourage parents to seek out chiropractors who routinely take care of children in their practice.

When adjusting a newborn, a skilled chiropractor will only use the amount of pressure that you would use to comfortably push on your eye. The child gets checked by hand and with technology, then is placed in position (usually in Mommy’s lap), and gentle pressure is applied. That’s all there is to it. It’s simple, safe, and effective.

Two major studies on chiropractic and infantile colic have shown that over a period of two weeks (usually three visits) 94 percent of babies adjusted by chiropractors showed a successful rating, with 25 percent showing improvement after the first adjustment. Dr. S. Vallone, in a 2007 study, concluded, “Chiropractic adjustments in the early stages of neurologic imprinting appear to safely and effectively address the craniocervical dysfunction and help restore natural, efficient suckling patterns for infants who are unable to successfully latch.”


Better immunity through a healthy spine and nerve system

A leader in psychoneuroimmunology, Dr. Candice Pert, credits chiropractic as having a significant effect on maximizing immunity via maintenance of a healthy nerve system.

A pilot study examined the relationship between intensity of chiropractic care and incidence of childhood diseases. The results showed that children who went to the chiropractor more than seven times per year had an increased resistance (immunity) to common childhood diseases.

Many parents, myself included, have their children checked regularly by chiropractors as part of a healthy lifestyle to help them develop to their potential. Chiropractic is a safe, gentle, and effective way to address nerve dysfunction and promote overall wellness in the newborn and growing child.

It is my sincerest intent that this information will help as many families achieve better health through chiropractic.

If your life is afflicted by numbness or tingling in the arms, hands, fingers, legs, feet or toes then you will be interested in this clinical study that showed…

How Patients Significantly Improved Their Sharp Pains, Grip Strength, and Eliminated Numbness and Tingling Without Drugs or Surgery

Dr. Matthew Posa, D.C.

Milton, ON

Numbness, tingling, and pain affects all parts of your life

Numbness and tingling is a huge problem which affects every part of your life from sleeping, sitting or walking.  The thought of getting a good night sleep or playing with your kids or grandchildren may seem like a pipe dream because your arms or legs are in too much pain and may even be weak.

Maybe you’re frustrated because you’ve been told that you have to live with it as all the medical testing indicates that you shouldn’t have a problem. Or maybe you’re even fearful because the only options left are drugs with heavy side effects or surgery.

I can tell you one thing…… you are not alone. Millions of people suffer from some form of peripheral neuropathy which can be caused by different things. It is described by webmd.com as a condition that results when nerves from the brain and spinal cord which carry messages to and from the rest of the body are damaged or diseased.

This condition obstructs the nerve signals that control your muscles, joints, connective tissues and organs and if ignored could lead to more serious complications.

“I feel like I’m 30 years older than I actually am.  I can’t walk great distances without pain.  My hands go numb while doing the simplest activities like watching tv or lying in bed.  I am tired of living this way.”

More Pills Are Not the Solution

I have been helping hundreds people with nerve related conditions for over 6 years. I want to let you know that there is hope and you do have another option in Chiropractic that has been proven effective in removing pressure on the nerves without drugs or surgery.

There have been many clinical studies which have demonstrated the benefit of chiropractic and nerve conditions:

Patients showed an 85.5% resolution of the nerve symptoms after only 9 chiropractic treatments. – Journal of Chiropractic Medicine 2008

With chiropractic care, patients had “significant improvement in perceived comfort and function, nerve conduction and finger sensation overall.” – JMPT 1998

“Significant increase in grip strength and normalization of motor and sensory latencies were noted. Orthopedic tests were negative. Symptoms dissipated.” – JMPT 1994

What these studies mean is that there is hope for you to get your life back.

Where should you start?

b2ap3_thumbnail_nerves.jpg

Finding the cause of your neuropathy is where you should start. Doctors of Chiropractic are trained to identify the causes of neuropathic conditions and if your case is beyond the scope of chiropractic you would be referred to the appropriate health professional.  However, often these conditions are caused by a degeneration or misalignment of the spine called Subluxation which can interfere with the nerves that leave your spine and travel to anywhere in the body.  This pressure can arise from the bones or intervertebral discs anywhere on the spine from the base of the head down to the tail bone.

Whether you have been to a chiropractor before or this would be your first experience, you may be wondering what to expect with us.  We want you to understand everything about your case and our procedures before we get started.  Our exams are thorough and our patients describe our techniques as “gentle and effective”.  We have many techniques that we can use to ensure that you are comfortable without hindering the results of your care and progress.

The goal is to release pressure on the nerves to allow your body to heal.

The first step is to have us investigate your problem.  We know that you may have tried everything else without success but this could the answer to your nerve problems.  We hear this from many patients…

“I wish I had found you sooner”

 

Your life could change for the better.  It’s time to start your body on the right path towards living normally again.  Watch your mobility improve, muscles relax and your pain ease up.

If you or someone you know is suffering, don't hesitate to call us at 905-864-1516 or send us an email at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. and we will answer your questions.

Many people are surprised when I talk about chiropractic care for babies. Some may even cringe at the thought of a chiropractor adjusting a baby because they’re thinking: “Is chiropractic safe for babies?” or “Do babies get adjusted the same way as adults?”

 

Have you ever seen a new born get checked by a chiropractor? Here's Dr. Matthew Posa from The Healthy Family Chiropractic in Milton

These are valid questions. In short, YES chiropractic is safe for babies/newborns with chiropractors who have been trained in pediatric chiropractic techniques. And NO, babies do not get adjusted the same way as adults. A baby’s joints are more cartilaginous than bony and only require about the same amount of pressure as you would use to check the ripeness of a tomato. The birth process can be traumatic for an infant so I’m a strong believer in ALL babies getting checked by a chiropractor. In many cases, infant spinal misalignments may not present any visible symptoms until later on in life. However, there are 3 visible signs that babies may show to indicate they need to get checked by a chiropractor:

1. Colic

There are many new parents who have a baby who is colicky. This can be a very difficult time for many parents because of the feeling of helplessness. The causes of colic can be from gassiness to abdominal pains to reflux. In essence, the newborn is experiencing some type of symptom and the only way they know how to express their pain is by crying.

A chiropractor can determine if a spinal misalignment is causing the newborn to be in a state of discomfort. Trained chiropractors can detect spinal misalignments with a thorough examination and correct the misalignment with a safe and gentle adjustment to the spine. A study has shown that spinal adjustments can decrease the number of hours a baby is colic by 2.7 hours per day compared to the medicated group which decreased colic by 1 hour per day.(1) The authors of the study also add that as the study went on, the chiropractic group continued to see improvements. Another study with 316 colicky infants showed that through chiropractic care, 94% of them had improvement.(2) More recently, this study concluded, “chiropractic manual therapy improved crying behavior in infants with colic”.(3)

2. Favours turning head to the left or the right

If your newborn prefers to keep their head turned to either the left or the right, it is a clear sign that the infant has a misalignment in their upper neck area. One tell-tale sign of this is if the newborn favours one breast over the other while breastfeeding. While this child may not have any overt symptoms such as being colicky, it is wise to ensure this child has his or her spine checked from a preventative standpoint to correct any underlying problem that may arise in the future.

3. Reflux

Reflux among newborns is not uncommon, but consistent and constant reflux should be addressed because the underlying problem may be due to a spinal misalignment. A spinal misalignment may cause dysfunction of the esophageal muscles leading to reflux and in more serious cases GERD (gastroesophageal reflux disease). Some signs and symptoms of GERD include interrupted sleep, excessive gas, vomiting, excessive crying, and difficulty breastfeeding. In a recent case study, the authors conclude: “pediatric patients suffering from gastrointestinal disorder such as GERD may benefit from clinical adjustments to sites of vertebral subluxations.”(4)

As a father of two beautiful girls, who both got their first chiropractic adjustments within hours of being born, the spinal health of infants and children is particularly close to my heart. While these are just 3 visible signs your baby needs to get checked by a chiropractor trained in pediatric techniques, I can’t stress enough that ALL babies will benefit from getting checked.

Our modern digital age has brought us many conveniences. BlackBerry devices, iPhones, tablets and e-readers allow us to communicate and be entertained with the push of a button. Technology can improve our quality of life, but it comes with a price: being huddled over devices for long period of times can do more harm than good. 

Using certain devices for extended periods of time can easily lead to neck strain, headaches, and pain in the shoulders, arms and hands. 

b2ap3_thumbnail_Screen-Shot-2017-06-04-at-7.05.07-PM.png

Anyone who has used a cellphone or tablet for an extensive amount of time has probably experienced the peculiar strain it puts on your upper body. These conditions even have their own name now: Text Neck.

Here are some simple strategies to help shut down text neck strain: 

Take frequent breaks

Taking frequent breaks and looking up from your device can provide your neck with some relief from the pressure of looking down. 

Sit up straight

It is important to sit up straight while texting. This way you can maintain good posture, relieving your back and shoulders from the strain of being hunched over. 

Hold the phone a little higher

Holding the phone closer to eye level helps maintain a healthy posture and puts less strain on the neck.

Stretch

Be sure to stretch often between long periods of extended use of devices. You can rotate your shoulders with your arms by your sides to relieve tension. You can also tuck your chin down to your neck and then look up – this helps to relieve some of the tension in your neck built from the common forward-down position you adopt when looking at your device.

Get Adjusted

Only 10% of the population currently has a regular chiropractic visit. Ensuring your spine is healthy and in proper alignment is the most important step towards avoiding pains and strains.

One of the most important aspects of chiropractic care is understanding subluxation and why everyone from newborns to 95 year old grand parents need to be under care. Truthfully, If I only had to take care of one person in the family, it would be the YOUNGEST. Growing healthy children is much easier than fixing injured adults.

 

Some of you may have seen a Facebook post where students asked the effects of stress over time and the teacher used a water bottle to help explain. Since Subluxation is the most dangerous stress you can have, I believe it is pivotal to understand how it applies to you and your health.

 b2ap3_thumbnail_mhAWyRK.jpg

Imagine I gave you a bottle of water and asked you to hold it in your hands with your arm stretched out. Then I asked you how much it weighs. What would you say? 1 lbs, .5 lbs, 2 lbs?  The truth is, it doesn’t matter. What matters is how long you hold onto the bottle. If you hold the bottle of water for 1 minute, you will probably not notice the weight. If I hold it for 5 minutes your arm will start to feel tired and heavy. If you held it for 15 minutes your fingers would probably go numb and if you did it for an hour you probably would lose complete function in your arm and strain the supporting muscles.

 

The way we need to view subluxation is quite simple. Subluxations are correctable but what truly matters is how long it has been there. The longer it has been there, the more impact (weight) it has on your body. Subluxations are only detectable by those trained to detect it and you will never hear from your medical doctor about something they are not trained in. b2ap3_thumbnail_subluxation.jpg

 

Research confirms subluxation is not a bone pressing on a nerve. Research has shown the body is smarter than that (duh) and will go into a defense mechanism. When a certain spinal vertebrae Subluxates, the nerves around that segment and the spinal cord directly behind it begins to shrink so that nothing will press on it. However, this is meant to be a short term (adaptive) solution. If undetected and not adjusted, the longer it stays that way, the greater the impact to the body. This is why it does not cause a symptom and if symptoms are present, we have a much bigger problem on our hands.

 

Subluxations are truly a silent killer. They do not press on nerves, they cause the body to alter its state to avoid any structures pressing on it. The brain then enters a stressful (sympathetic) response. In this stressed and altered state, your ability to self regulate, produce hormones, drugs, healing, repair, function, think..etc are directly affected. Left undetected for days, weeks, months, years will all have varying effects on your health from headaches, tight muscles, anxiety, diabetes, blood pressure (insert symptom or disease here). It all comes down to how long it has been there. The higher in the spine the Subluxation the greater the altered physiology.

 b2ap3_thumbnail_Vertebral-Subluxation-Chiropractic-web-image-e14407757884971-1024x742.png

Getting your spine checked and adjusted for Subluxation is the most powerful health choice you have made. How long Subluxation has been there will not only determine how long it will take to correct it but also how severe of an impact it will have. Health is our greatest asset. Being proactive and not reactive means you give your brain the ability to fight disease before it consumes you.

It's time to think Christmas Strategy.

Unfortunately during this time of the year because of time constraints, people being busy, financial stress, parties, bad foods, more booze etc..  it more often than not is one of the most stressful times of the year. More people get sick during Christmas and January than any other time in the year. 

Here are my 7 AWESOME Steps to Christmas Success

1. Pro-Actively Pre-Eat: Before you go to Christmas functions, dinners and parties and indulge in foods you don't normally eat (SUGAR), eat a few hours before something nutritious before you go. This will decrease the tendency for you to want to eat more food and ensure you are getting proper nutrition. 

2. Stay Continually Hydrated: People often think they are hungry when in fact they are dehydrated. Especially in kids. Staying hydrated is not only good for you it will ensure your appetite stays in control. 

3. Don't skip on your workout. Your workout is as much as a mind set thing as it is a physical thing. Exercise breaks stress, oxygenates your cells and this gives life to your tissues. If you skip your workout you often tend to skip-out on other things too. Stick to it and be committed, consistency is key.

4. Steer Clear of the Sugar. Sugar is proven to reduce the function of your nervous system which reduces your immune system. Sugar feeds disease cells. Bacterial and Cancer cells LOVE sugar.

5. Don't hang out near the bad stuff. Out of sight, out of mind. Don't park yourself beside the bar or beside the sweets table. 

6. Rest Up. We typically get this wrong and do it backwards. When we are the most busy, we need the most rest. Take a small 15-20 min nap if you need to. Deadlines, late nights, parties, extra work all add up to less rest. 

7. Take the time to be Merry and Joyful. This is so so so important. This is one of the relationships time of the year. Do not let stress and being caught up in pointless things rob you of joy. Surround yourself with loved ones and celebrate life. 

When we need Health the most, we often bail on it the most. These strategies will keep you pointed in the right direction so that you can live the life you were Designed to live. 

From all of us at the healthy family to you and your family, we love being part of your lives and on your journey towards true health. Have a wonderful Merry Christmas and a happy new year. God bless,

Last week TMZ reported that playboy model Katie May died after chiropractor 'tore open artery while manipulating' neck injury she incurred on photo shoot. 

I am a Chiropractor and I want everyone to know the truth before they start pointing fingers or worse, people not getting care that can help them.

- Katie May did suffer a neck injury while on a photo shoot before visiting a chiropractor.
- She was experiencing pains such as neck pain, arm numbness and tingling before she went to the chiropractor
- She did not feel better after going to the chiropractor

It pains me to see someone so young pass away from a stroke. It is important that everyone knows that science has proven that a Chiropractor cannot cause a stroke. It is not possible by the way we do things today and with all the training we have. I will agree after being adjusted my entire life that I did not like all the chiropractors I saw or the style of adjustments I received but that doesn't mean Chiropractic is not safe and it doesn't work.

Here are some important sings and symptoms associated with a stroke: 

  • Sudden numbness or weakness in the face, arm, or leg, especially on one side of the body.
  • Sudden confusion, trouble speaking, or difficulty understanding speech.
  • Sudden trouble seeing in one or both eyes.
  • Sudden trouble walking, dizziness, loss of balance, or lack of coordination.
  • Sudden severe headache with no known cause.
  • The Key word is sudden. If you are experiencing any of these symptoms please go to your nearest emergency department right away. It is always better to be safe than sorry.

Why are people linking chiropractic and stroke? This is what the best research has to say:
- The neck pain or headaches from a dissected cervical artery cause patients to schedule a visit with a chiropractor for pain relief. 
- The dissected vertebral artery is already present before the adjustment takes place. And that’s why so many draw fast conclusions that an adjustment caused it.

4. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/25494315

And this last research article will surprise you...they concluded “those who were under the care of a Chiropractor had less strokes than those under a primary care physician.”

Chiropractic is not only very safe, thousands of lives are being saved from over 2 million adjustments done every day around the world. The probability of someone having a major issue is 1 in 4.2 Million. Chiropractic has been around for over 121 years and in that time only a hand full of these types of conditions have presented. Nobody makes a stink when 2000 kids die every year from taking Tylenol.

b2ap3_thumbnail_risks_infographic.png

If you are suffering and want help, we can help and rest assured, IT IS SAFE. Chiropractors are loving and caring people, who wake up every day excited to help others. We are highly trained and love to serve our patients with the highest level of health care available.

Yes some people hate the sound or to watch people get adjusted but that does not make it unsafe.

What you need to know is that not all chiropractors are the same. In our office, the care and concern of our patients is our absolute priority. All patients undergo extensive tests including x-ray to determine the cause of their concern and to allow us to be extremely precise. Only once we have carefully reviewed your examination findings and come up with a treatment plan do we proceed with specific chiropractic adjustments and correction. We do not gamble with people's lives. For more information visit our website at www.thehealthyfamily.ca or call us at 905-864-1516.  

God bless everyone,

Milton Chiropractor baffles Medical Doctors: What he is doing is not possible, or is it?


It's been said many times, once the spine has started to break down there is nothing "we" can do. Many people continue to seek medical advice when it comes to neck and back pain. This often leads to either a surgical consultation with a specialist or more often than not, more prescriptions.  "Many people are starting to wake up and want answers says Dr. Matthew Posa, a chiropractor in Milton, Ontario. Dr. Posa specializes in a new form of chiropractic called Spinal Correction and is the owner of The Healthy Family Chiropractic. "Chiropractic has come a long way in recent years, now we can not only improve how the spine moves and feels but actually change its shape to the original design". "This allows for the spine to heal and things like degenerative joint and disc disease can actually be fixed."

In 2014, Harvard Medical School made a stand to back chiropractic in hopes of restoring a severed relationship between both professions. "As a chiropractor my job is not to go against medicine since medicine when applied correctly saves lives, especially in emergencies. My job is to work with medical doctors so we can help people and give them a real solution without drugs or surgery."

These are just some of the amazing changes that are possible. These lives are being changed and now nobody will have to endure the pain or problems associated with degeneration, arthritis, medications or their side effects. Living the life you were designed to live is possible and our mission.
