Infantile Acid Reflux
"I found Jupiter Family Chiropractic and met Dr. Helia when I thought there were no other options. My son was born full term but delivered via vacuum extraction which caused many complications for him including, but not limited to, severe reflux and the inability to lift and turn his head to the right. One night, while researching options, I learned about Chiropractic Care and all of the benefits it has to offer. It is the best decision that I have made for Kody.
When Kody started treatment he was only 8 weeks old and suffering from constant reflux pain which led to sleepless days and nights, constant crying, and an all-around miserable, fussy baby. He was on several medications to control the reflux (Zantac 2x/day and Prevacid 1x/day) but even then, he had times where the milk would come through his nose and mouth! This in turn, simultaneously, would cause him to choke! He would then need to be aspirated. In addition to all of this, since he was 3 weeks old every bottle he was given had to be thickened with rice cereal due to the severe acid reflux. He could only sleep upright and tummy time was not even an option! Needless to say, after a lot of different medications and several hospital visits later, I was in search of a more natural, holistic approach - and that approach was Chiropractic Care.
Within only 1 month of treatment, Kody’s range of motion increased very much and he was able to turn his head to the right! Within 2 months of treatment, he was lifting his head up high during tummy time and even rolling over! By the third month of treatment, the reflux had improved so much that we were able to remove the Zantac medication. Now, at almost 6 months old, Kody is doing fantastic! He is almost medication free, he is rolling, sitting and standing up with limited assistance, he is sleeping through the night, and the rice is no longer needed in his bottles due to the fact that his reflux has almost disappeared!
I owe my son's happiness and our overall well-being to Dr. Helia - I would highly recommend anyone suffering from a similar situation or any other situation for that matter, to undergo Chiropractic Care as it truly has been a life saver for my family!"
