Chiropractic News:
 Infantile Colic and Chiropractic

Colic is one of the most common complaints of infants resulting in excessive crying and other negative behavioral patterns. A study conducted by Miller, et al, examined the long term effects of toddlers with infant colic treated with chiropractic care versus those who had not. The results showed that toddlers treated with chiropractic care had less negative behavioral and sleep patterns compared to those who had not experienced chiropractic care.
The objective of the study was to investigate the alleviation of long-term effects of infant colic on the toddler and document any behavioral or sleep disturbances experienced by post-colicky toddlers who were previously treated with chiropractic care versus those who had not experienced this treatment as an infant.
The investigators examined the clinic records of two groups of children, one from a chiropractic clinic and the other from a child care center, both in similar regions in England. Parents of the toddlers surveyed included 117 post-colicky toddlers in the treatment group and 111 post-colicky toddlers in the non-treatment group.
Results showed that toddlers treated with chiropractic care were twice as likely not to experience long term symptoms of infantile colic, such as temper tantrums and frequent nocturnal waking, than those not treated with chiropractic care. Untreated post-colicky infants demonstrated negative behavioral patterns at 2 to 3 years old. In this study, parents of children treated with chiropractic care for excessive crying also did not report as many difficult behavioral and sleep patterns of their toddler than those not treated with chiropractic care. These findings, the investigators concluded, "suggest that chiropractic care for infants with colic may have an effect on long term symptoms."

We Now Offer On Site Breast Thermography Scans
Thermography is a radiation-free health screening procedure that uses heat detection to locate areas of temperature differences in the body.

Most pathological processes demonstrate increased heat, and some show excessive cold, or hypothermia. Breast disease can be detected by looking for areas of excess heat indicative of increased blood vessels supplied to a growing tumor.
All reports are reviewed and signed by senior interpreter, Alexander Sepper, MD, Ph.D., who has practiced over 30 years as a Gynecologist and has performed 100’s of thousands of thermal studies for women with ovarian and breast cancer.
Thermography technician, Ashley Ageloff, will be performing Thermography scans at Jupiter Family Chiropractic one day per month. The next available date for Thermography screening is Wednesday, December 17th.

Appointments can be made at the front desk or by calling our office at 561.277.9087. Spots are limited.
December's Testimonial:
Back and Shoulder Pain Relief
"As a person that works in the medical field, I was looking for a solution to my constant aches and pains that come from working long hours on my feet, lifting equipment, and positioning patients. I began chiropractic care with Dr. Helia about a year ago in hopes that my back and shoulder pain would subside. In the course of this past year, I have noticed a huge improvement and it has become a weekly routine that I desperately need. I immediately notice a difference in my body when I miss an appointment and I am so thankful that I found Dr. Helia. Thanks for everything."
