A child’s first subluxation often occurs at birth. The modern birth process is very traumatic, often putting a large strain on the tender neck of a newborn. According to Dr. Gutmann, a medical doctor in Europe,
Childrenover 80% of the 1000+ infants he saw were out of autonomic balance. This means that their upper neck had blockages, which have been shown to lead to excessive crying, sleeplessness, difficulty nursing, as well as lowered resistance to ear, nose, and throat infections. Sound like any children you know?
After birth, children continue to stress their spines. Though children are resilient, the constant exposure to physical stress (falls, heavy backpacks, poor posture, etc.), chemical stress (impure air & water, poor nutrition), and emotional stress impairs the nervous system’s ability to do its job. If left untreated, over time subluxations can lead to back pain, headaches, or may even be linked to or contribute to such conditions as asthma, colic, or ADD.
