When we first started chiropractic care for our family, I didn’t know the link between chiropractic and the nervous system. I pretty much viewed it as a skeletal-structural field of care for pain relief. I am glad that we stumbled across the neurological aspect of chiropractic, though, because of the tremendous difference it has made in the life of our child.
When my husband started seeing Dr. Spear, he brought with him our three-year-old son, Benjamin. Dr. Spear knew that Benjamin had a difficult birth and asked if he could examine him. We agreed, and we learned that his upper neck vertebrae were out of place. The adjustments Dr. Spear did were very gentle, but frequent. I wasn’t expecting any results from the adjustments, I was just glad to have the last vestiges of Benjamin’s difficult birth erased. In fact I didn’t even think to observe my son to see if there were any changes. It turns out there were big changes. I just didn’t notice it until much later.
