While working as a Chiropractic Assistant at Hayes Chiropractic in Glen Ellyn, Illinois, a young woman brought in her 1-year old daughter to see the Chiropractor. She said that she wasn't seeing any improvement in the health of her daughter, who had been diagnosed with congenital torticollis. This condition readily occurs during birth trauma and causes shortening of the sternocleidomastoid muscle. Shortening of this muscle causes the patient’s head to tilt to one side, which can indirectly cause ear infections, projectile vomiting, facial asymmetry and various other symptoms.
A physician the young woman consulted, before deciding to see a Chiropractor, recommended the child undergo surgery to correct the problem. The mother was confused and her daughter’s condition was worsening by the day as she was unable to retain any liquids or foods, due to the constant projectile vomiting. The child was notably malnourished and in poor health. The Chiropractor was horrified and stated that there was an alternative, more conservative approach to correcting the condition. The mother was relieved and tears were streaming down her face. He noted the child would need to come in for several sessions that would consist of an adjustment to the cervical and upper thoracic spine. He then recommended applying heat with specific home exercises (which he demonstrated) to lengthen the muscles that have been shortened from birth trauma.
Dr. Tinnirello remembers as if it were yesterday. After just the third visit, the mother walked in with a smile - embracing the doctor, thanking him, and letting him know that her daughter was finally able to have a restful night and eat without having the urge to vomit. Since then, Dr. Tinnirello has never looked back and has helped many people in the same way - without the use of drugs or surgery.
Many times people want a quick fix and the body unfortunately does not function in that manner. Aspirin or other prescription drugs may temporarily relieve someone’s pain, but is not solving the underlying root of the problem. As Chiropractors, we believe the body needs to heal - which begins with the nervous system, providing nourishment and proper blood flow to all the vital organs in the body.
