Neurosensory Deficits, Disorders, and Challenges:

Dr. Bill just attended a seminar called: Neurosensory Integration. It was all about helping children develop more normally and specifically those with:

-learning disabilities, dyslexia, ADD, ADHD, low energy, decreased coordination, developmental delays, etc.

While neither chiropractic nor this neurosensory integration 'treat' any of the above conditions, many of the above the conditions have responded very nicely to a combination of chiropractic adjustments and improving one's neurosensory functions.

It may mean a young boy can't figure out how to do simple scholastic things because he's just not 'wired' exactly right, or there is too much confusion going on in his nervous system. Or that a young girl lacks coordination because her nervous system set up is overloaded or understimulated.

9 week old with colic-made happier!

Picture a cute little 9 week old girl. She looks cute, but something from the tired look in the mother's eyes tells the observer that all is not well.

The mother explains that the little 'angel' basically never sleeps. She will take a short nap for 10 minutes and then wake up screaming.

In my office, the wee one cried as hard as I have ever seen a child cry and her face turned a bright red at the least movement or touch.

We checked her out for subluxations (spinal misalignments that can interfere with the body's normal energy and healing abilities). No surprise, she had a bunch of them.

After a very gentle touch to the neck, and a few other areas: (interspersed with the little girl's full throated-red-faced screaming), all of a sudden, she calmed down and started to yawn.

The Mom called later to say that for the first time in this little girl's 9 week existence, she laid down for a nap for 90 mins. and when she woke up she was happy!

Ear infections...gone!

We had the pleasure of helping a young 2 and 1/2 year old overcome the chronic ear infections that he had suffered from since he was 3 months old. Mom was tired of giving him antibiotics and the tubes that were put in his ears didn't seem to make much of a difference either.

So, after getting some relief from her low back pain, she brought her toddler in to get checked out.
He had recently had three cycles of ear infections in a row and was dependent on antibiotics each time to help him overcome them.

After a spinal exam and computerized thermal scan, it was evident that he had some subluxations in his neck and upper back areas. He also had congested sinuses and blocked or at least inflamed Eustachian tubes.

He was adjusted gently in both his mid back and neck and then given a massage to his sinuses and the area of his neck relating to the neck lymph nodes and Eustachian tubes.

He came in two days later and was already feeling better and the sinus congestion and ear infections had decreased. By the next week, he was free of the ear infection and sinus challenges.

Now some three months later, he continues to be healthy and happy and free of infections for the first time in his short life.

The body knows how to heal itself...sometimes it just needs a little help.

KSL radio and website article, 4.1.09

Yep, that's right...Dr. Bill got a 'brief' interview on KSL radio about:

Parents turning to chiropractors instead of pediatricians. The overall text is decent and from a bigger article from USA Today on Monday March 31, 2009. The last line should be tweaked a little bit to: "Lawler stated that while he doesn't promise to cure any illness or disease, he does do his best to help remove interferences to healing and works hard at helping the body heal itself."
You can go to the website and have a listen if you'd like...The blogsite comments went from encouraging to nasty...a bit more polarizing emotion out there than I realized!
Parents turning to chiropractors instead of pediatricians

ALPINE -- More parents than ever are taking their kids to the chiropractor instead of a pediatrician.

Bill Lawler has been a chiropractor for 27 years. He's currently practicing at Chiropractic 4 Kids and Families in Alpine and says in the past couple of decades his patients have been getting younger. Nearly half are under the age of 18.

"Newborn babies, usually not seconds after they've been born, but within days to weeks definitely," he said.

He says most often parents bring kids in for ear infections but also for sleeping problems, bed wetting issues, colds, the flu and about anything else.

The National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine says nearly three percent of all U.S. children are treated by chiropractors. He cautions more studies need to be done to prove the techniques are safe and effective.

Lawler welcomes more research to document what works. Lawler says he never promises patients he's going to cure a child's sickness, but he says he'll work to relieve tension and stress from the body so the body can heal itself.
