Chiropractic Success Story - Proactive Exam Discovers Spinal Curvature in Teenager

Active 13 Year Old Had No Pain

Chiropractic Success Story - Proactive Exam Discovers Spinal Curvature in Teenager

Mark and Debbie started care in our office and decided to get their son Cody checked for subluxations. He is an extremely active 13 year old; playing soccer, basketball, baseball, etc. So they wanted to make sure he is growing with a healthy spine.

Although he didn't have pain the doctors found Cody had a significant curvature in his spine. This could definitely cause future problems so he started on a light corrective schedule. After 12 weeks of upper cervical care, we re-x-rayed him. The changes we all saw were amazing!

Chiropractic Changed My Life!

Helping a 2 year old sleep.

Chiropractic Changed My Life!

I know it may sound dramatic, but my experience with Family First Chiropractic has literally changed my life. 

My 2-year old has struggled with sleep since he was a wee babe, and it recently went from horrible to unbearable.  I read every sleep book, scoured every blog, talked to dozens of seasoned parents, and even paid a trained sleep specialist to help me.  Nothing resolved the problem.  Then I remembered a friend suggesting that I take my son to a chiropractor to potentially resolve his sleep issues.  I did some research and found Family First with glowing recommendations.  I met with Dr. Dawn and Dr. Payton.  They were kind, knowledgeable, and concerned.  To make a long story short, after only a couple of adjustments, my son’s sleep dramatically improved.  It has now been 2 months, and he now sleeps 12 hours/ night and then takes an afternoon nap that ranges in the 1-2 hour range.  I’ve even observed that my son's overall health has improved.  He runs faster and generally has better coordination, he’s happier, and he doesn’t get sick even half as often as he did prior to getting adjusted. 

Dr. Dawn and Dr. Payton have even treated my son successfully for ear infections!  I had no idea your ear can get adjusted, but I’m convinced that these people can do anything!  They have become my primary care doctors and offer a wealth of information and care.  I cannot rave enough.

Supporting Oklahaven Children's Chiropractic Center

First Annual Have-A-Heart Campaign!

Family First Chiropractic is excited to team up with Oklahaven Children's Chiropractic Center for our First Annual Have-A-Heart Campaign!

Kids and chiropractic is a cause that is near and dear to us. Upper Cervical care has helped many kids heal and is one of the many techniques used at Oklahaven. Being the premier Upper Cervical Chiropractic office in San Diego we are proud to support this amazing non-profit!

Oklahaven’s mission is to help sick and disabled children back to health through chiropractic care. The Center specializes in the treatment of neurologically disorganized children: nursing difficulties, colic, ear aches, failure to thrive, developmental delays, asthma, arthritis, ADD, ADHD through the autistic spectrum, and cerebral palsy are just a few conditions that have been successfully treated. Children respond quickly to treatment since their bodies have great recuperative powers.

Many parents come to the Center as their last hope.

Relief From Long-term Accident Injuries

Posted by Curtis on Friday, August 30, 2013.

"I was in a car accident when I was 17 and spent some time rehabilitating with a physical therapist and a chiropractor. We thought that we had fixed my problem in my neck and back, but as I have learned in the past few months, that may not have been the case. I am not 29 and put my back out and spent two weeks working from my living room floor"

"I was able to find Dr. Dawn and Dr. Payton and they took X-Rays of my neck and back and showed me how twisted my discs were and how my neck actually bends the wrong way. I can only assume that this is from my car accident 12 years ago. I was always a little bit afraid of having my neck adjusted by a chiropractor because of the violent twisting and jerking of my neck, but they use this targeted upper cervical technique that is not scary at all, but has made such a dramatic improvement to my lower back pain and my headaches."

"They treat us like family and adjust their schedule to be sure that I can get the care that I need, when I need it. I definitely recommend giving these guys a try. You will not be disappointed."
