Tourette’s Syndrome, TS, TicsOf course, any parent wants the very best for their children. How, though, can we really know what is best? Can we trust our doctors? Can we believe what we see through advertisements on TV? As parents seeking help for our children, we have to educate ourselves about options for our children. One way to do that is to see what has helped other children suffering from Tourette’s syndrome. Here is one example.

What Helped One Child

A nine-year-old boy was diagnosed with Tourette’s syndrome. He began having health issues shortly after his birth using forceps. He had a fall down some stairs at age one. At age two, he developed asthma. He was given an inhaler. He also had pneumonia and ear infections that occurred yearly. When he was seven, he was diagnosed with ADHD and Tourette’s syndrome. At age eight, the next diagnosis was depression and insomnia. From that point he began having headaches and neck pain.

His parents sought care from an upper cervical chiropractor. It was discovered during his first examination that he indeed did have injuries to his neck that had caused a misalignment in the top two vertebrae. This may have been due to the use forceps at birth, his fall down the stairs, or both.

The Results?

Can you believe that just two days after his initial adjustment he had improvement in his personality? His tics had reduced by half, and his headaches and neck pain were gone. He was able to sleep through the night with no wheezing. He continued to improve. After his first month of care, they were able to reduce his antidepressants by half. His attention and association with other kids in school had also improved. Can you imagine such a small misalignment causing such huge health problems?

The needed adjustments can then be made to restore proper function back to the brainstem and communication in the body. Healing can begin, and you will start to see improvements in your child.
