Constipated no longer!

Whew, long time no update Dr. Bill!

Okay, here we go with a new, good story:

My almost 4 year old grandson Eli just moved into our house, he and his family are in transit...on the way to Bejing, China...but that's another story, and two days ago, he was in a lot of pain from not being able to go potty.

Some of you know the pain personally, or know of loved ones who have suffered from such a condition. Not fun, no 'joy in mudville' and thing can just sort of get worse.

Well, Eli's bright Mommy, my eldest daughter Becca, suggested that Gramps give Eli an adjustment. I did just that.

I adjusted his lower back, L4-5 area that is directly connected to the spinal nerves that go to the intestines, the poop area and what not. I then did a gentle (sort of) massage on his descending large intestine (where the poop often gets kind of stuck), and went on my way to work.

By the end of the day, the boy had visited the toilet with significant contributions no less than 6 times...

Moral of the story: constipation might be linked to a nerve system blockage that can be helped by a chiropractic adjustment. See a pediatric chiropractor in your area, and get things 'flowing' again! (visit to find a pediatric chiro near you).
