We see many children at our office for many different reasons. Although many parents bring their children in to address ear infections, colic, sleeping issues, etc., we encourage all parents to have their children evaluated at a young age in order to catch problems early on. Correction of problems during childhood insures proper growth and development, and prevents future problems, many of which we suffer with as adults today due to lack of early chiropractic care. Dr. Barrick is a family chiropractor and registered member of the International Pediatric Chiropractic Association (ICPA) and is certified in the Webster Technique to address breech position babies during pregnancy.
My 10 month old son suffered for months from ear pain due to fluid. I kept dragging him to the doctor thinking he had an ear infection and every time I was told there was fluid but it wasn’t infected. My son would wake up several times a night, every night, screaming and pulling on his ears. We had to give him Tylenol constantly. I hated medicating such a young child but he was clearly in pain. We’d watch Baby Einstein movies at 2am until the Tylenol kicked in or he just finally crashed from exhaustion. Then one night, desperate for sleep, we put our son in the car and drove him around until he fell asleep. He would stay asleep in the car because the pressure from the fluid wasn’t as bad in an upright position. My saint of a husband spent 2 nights sleeping in the car with our son just so we could all get some rest. After 2 nights of this, we went to see Dr. Barrick. I was skeptical but desperate and was at the point of trying anything!
Dr. Barrick explained everything to us and then did a painless, quick adjustment. That very night, our son spent the entire night sleeping in his crib and didn’t wake up once! It was obvious that the adjustment made a difference because in his entire 10 months of life this was the first time he had slept so well. The best part is he has continued to sleep through the night! He has also started to make more and more sounds whereas before he didn’t have many sounds-probably due to the muffled sound from the fluid. When we took Nathan back to the doctor, she reported that the fluid was mostly gone!!! Infant chiropractic care works and our son’s case proves this! Thank you, Dr. Barrick! We are all enjoying more sleep in our own beds and he is a much happier little boy! If only we had known about chiropractic care when he was a colicky newborn!
