Our Family: Baby Addison

Meet Addison.

When Dr. Shapiro met her she was only 10 weeks old. Her mother brought her to Shapiro Family Chiropractic to help her deal with some of the digestive issues she had been experiencing. If you are a parent, you probably know the pain of watching your infant experience discomfort, pain or trouble eating. It happens to most parents at some point, and it is often the cause of countless sleepless and stress-filled nights..

“Primarily what we wanted to treat was reflux,” explains her mother, “and it was disrupting her sleep, making her uncomfortable and fussy.” She had read a couple places that chiropractic care can be really helpful for infants. She also had been making visits to The Pregnancy Wellness Center of Parker, where she consulted her doula about the symptoms. “I know Dr. Shapiro works out of there some days so she had recommended him specifically.”

The whole family is resting better after visiting us. “We brought her in on Tuesday, the day before we were scheduled, because she had a really bad night and he said if that happens just to bring her in. She probably didn’t sleep at all that night, it was probably the hardest night yet,” mother recalls the nights with a stressful look on her face. Then she lights up, “Since we brought her in she has slept eight hours every night since.”

Only after five visits to our office, mom tells us that Addison’s reflux had decreased and that “her ability to tolerate is better because she started napping more regularly, which is helping significantly just to be able to get through the day comfortably.” In addition, other health symptoms were improved. “It seemed to also help with her gas.”

Thank you mother, father and baby Addison for visiting us. We are excited to see how Addison’s health improves and we are so grateful for families that are willing to share these stories—they are beacons for other parents who are experiencing the same problems, the sleepless nights, the hysterical worry, but for whatever reason are not equipped with the resources to know where to go. There is help for them, and they can find it right here at Shapiro Family Chiropractic.
