Kids and Chiropractic

The subject of children and babies getting chiropractic care is discussed in this month’s Newsletter (if you didn’t get that, sign up here).

A patient sent an email yesterday to ask about getting their, almost 3 year old, child in for care – wanting to know what I thought about that and how to make it happen.

So I thought I would review our unofficial ‘policy’ (actually more of a preference). Before I do that I will say that: (1) I would encourage everyone to have their children checked as early as is feasible, and (2) I refer to chiropractors who specialize in pediatrics when the patient is too little to lie on my table and hold still.

That said, here is how it usually happens and I like it when it works out this way. First, get the kid used to the office and what goes on here by bringing them in with you. That makes them comfortable, gets them used to the whole idea, and alleviates any fears that they may have. Plus, ‘if they are good’ they get treats: that helps. Second, if the child does not eventually insist on getting up on the table for ‘their turn’, we can gently bring up the subject, check for their reaction, and adjust our efforts accordingly. Usually, it is their idea to ‘be next’ and off we go. By the time they are old enough to lie up on the table and hold still while I check them, it is no problem, not drama ensues, and things go very well.

All of that assumes a kid that isn’t suffering or is obvious not right, and a parent that is onboard with the idea of preventing problems before they develop. Since I do not charge anything for the kids (up to a certain age), it is usually fine with the parents. (The last thing that I want is for the kid not to get checked because the parent is thinking about the fee.)

So there you go.

Aging In Place

Filed under: Uncategorized — doctordilday @ 10:20 am

I was approached about sharing the following information with you. Some might be interested, and I think it is probably valuable for many. So here it is(I left out the parts about mortgaging your home to pay for stuff!):

Aging in place is a dream for many seniors. Of course, the older we get, the more likely we are to be living with some form of a physical disability, meaning our homes will likely need some changes in order to allow us to remain there for as long as possible.

But don’t worry: we’ve compiled a great list of helpful resources that will help you understand how to assess your needs as a disabled senior, and create a financial plan and make modifications accordingly.

Guide to Room-by-Room Repairs for Easy Accessibility for Disabled Loved Ones – This handy guide will help you make an accessibility plan for your bathrooms, kitchen and yard – three of the most treacherous places for individuals with disabilities.

11 Low-Cost Aging in Place Modifications You Can Do Yourself – Fortunately, not every safety upgrade requires an arm and a leg, and many can be done DIY!

How to Make & Pay for Home Modifications to Enable Aging in Place – In addition to your actual home, there are more options than you might be aware of to fund safety upgrades. This guide offers lots of helpful tips and links to other resources for helping you fund your home modifications.

This list only scratches the surface of this topic, of course, and as an advocate for people of all ages with disabilities, we’re here to help. If you have questions on how to make your home a safe space for your Golden Years, please contact us.
