TOPEKA, Kan. (KSNT) – Collins Carlson from Topeka will be 4 months old on Sunday, but the first few months of her life were not easy.
“She was barely three weeks old and just cried a lot, more than our other two (children),” said Heidi Carlson, Collins mother.
Collins had trouble eating and cried most of the day.
“It certainly wasn’t fun to have a really fussy baby, especially at a time when we were all quarantined,” said Heidi. “A friend reminded me that we can seek chiropractic. I was cared for (chiropractor) throughout my pregnancy. “
Dr. Joshua Foreman explained how to fit babies with Foreman Chiropractic in Topeka.
“People think we adapt babies the same way we adapt adults. In all honesty, it’s usually done with the little fingers on my hand, ring finger, and pinky finger. And the instrument that we occasionally use for adjustment or assistance is called the instrument support adjustment, ”said Dr. Foreman. “It creates a pretty good force that allows us to be really precise with our adjustments to those tiny spines.”
Dr. Foreman has adjusted Collins five times since she was two weeks old.
“If it doesn’t move properly, we remove that restriction and let the body heal everything else.
Collins will be a happy, healthy baby, ”he said.
Heidi appreciated how quickly they could get in. It is small adjustments that help the tiny members of our family bring some relief.
