Life begins at creation and we are released into the world at birth about nine months later.  Now what?  In order to live your life to the fullest, you need to adapt to your world without interference, without spinal subluxations.  Your brain must communicate with the rest of your body through your nervous system, which is all connected through your spine.  When you are subluxated, not only can’t you relate to the world on the outside, you can’t even relate to world on your insides!  And since this happens to most of us at birth, we can’t be surprised to find out later on that we are not at our best.  

Anything that is good for us we should do our entire lives, on a regular basis.  Eating, exercise and rest are common examples.  However, there is another thing that belongs on that list:  Getting checked for spinal subluxations.  Were talking about something that you can’t feel. It begins at birth and it always lessens your life.  This is why everyone should get checked for this problem as soon as possible and as often as needed.  

The mother of the young lady above knew enough to bring her daughter in to have her spine checked by her Chiropractor so any subluxations could be corrected, allowing that little girl to grow into a promising young woman, without interference, just as her creator intended since she was conceived. And it doesn’t stop there.  Why should it?  Because as long as you are alive, you need to be checked for interference to your life.
Without seeing a chiropractor regularly, there are many conditions or symptoms that could arise as a result of spinal subluxations.  But why wait?  You can know today if you and your family are living your lives to the fullest.  Some childhood symptoms that could indicate complications of nerve interference are so common, we often mistake them for being normal.  

What do you think of this list?


  • Colic
  • Ear Infections
  • Asthma
  • Night Terrors
  • Restless leg syndrome
  • Jumper’s knee
  • Growing pains
  • Cold and flus
  • Allergies
  • Bed wetting
  • Strep throat
  • Attention Deficit Disorder
  • Tummy problems
  • Strep Throat


How many of these issues has our culture accepted as normal just because they are common?  In reality, these are often just ways intelligent, little bodies are forced to deal with because of spinal interference.  Remember, subluxations mean poor adaptation, which commonly means any number of the conditions above that we just teach our children to live with.  But things can be better.  Help us get every child in your life checked by letting every parent that you know about this important information.  Kids need so much from us and they can’t get checked without us. Let’s not leave them subluxated too.
