CHIROPRACTOR TODD HARRISON, DC
BIRTH CAN BE A SPRAIN IN THE NECK
I was not born with a natural physiologic birth. There were complications, I was born one month pre-mature by c-section. I weighed only 5 pounds at birth and struggled for life. After the doctors did everything they could, I had been sent me home not knowing if I would survive. I would randomly stop breathing, and barely kept any food down.
At this point my parents didn't know what to do for me. Following the recommendation of a friend my parents took me to see Dr. Fuller, a Chiropractor. With nothing to lose and my life to gain they placed their trust in his hands and education. Following my first adjustment I kept my first meal down. After some follow up care my condition stabilized and I haven't quit thriving since.
I now know my problems as a newborn were a result of spinal misalignment that began at birth. The first vertebra (bone) in the neck when misaligned will place pressure on the brain stem. The brain stem controls basic body functions like breathing and swallowing, the two problems I struggled with.
