Dr. Godfrey Gutmann, a German physician, conducted a study of over 1,000 newborns shortly after birth. He discovered that over 80% of the infants had suffered trauma to their cervical spine, which resulted in vertebral subluxations. Dr. Lendon Smith, MD, Pediatrician, stated as follows; Every newborn should receive a neck and spine examination and a Chiropractic Adjustment if necessary.
Is that idea too difficult to accept? Chiropractic care for children has been practiced since 1895, and has proven to be effective in treating and addressing a variety of disorders specific to children. Falls, sports injuries, heavy backpack for school and sitting all day in the classroom are physical stresses to the growing child's spine and nervous system.
Chiropractic Adjustment after these stresses can optimize your child's function and development. Dr. Matsushita is Palmer Graduate Doctor of Chiropractic.
