We Can Help

  • Ear Infections
    The number of children who suffer needless ear infections is heart breaking. In an effort to bring some relief pediatricians continue to treat them with antibiotics over and over again despite enormous amounts of research showing this approach is of no benefit, and can even be dangerous. Once the antibiotics fail again and again, parents are often steered toward surgery to drill holes in their ears and insert tubes. In our office we often hear stories of this surgery being performed again and again, with one mom telling us her son had tubes a staggering 22 times! There is another way, in our opinion, a much better way, to help kids move beyond the pain and suffering associated with ear infections.
    Chiropractic helps tremendously by correcting the upper neck misalignment that is often the cause. This helps the Eustachian tubes to properly drain, keeping infections from taking hold, and also boosts the function of the immune system. We can also recommend some simple nutritional changes that may help enormously as the body heals itself from the inside out.
     
  • Neuro-Developmental Disorders – Autism Spectrum Disorder, ADD/ADHD, Sensory Processing Disorder
    Sensory Processing Disorders come with an ever widening variety of labels, symptoms and diagnoses.  Many studies and reports suggest that sensory type issues are among the most commonly misdiagnoses and are often missed entirely.  Sensory based challenges are a common denominator in among the various lables.  Dr. Bruce loves sharing with parents how chiropractic can help 'reboot' the sensory programming and development that may be disrupted by interference in the Nervous System of babies and young children.
     
  • Excessive Stress/Anxieties
    Research shows that average americans of all ages are under greater levels of stress and anxiety than any generation of the past.  Eliminating and reducing stress are definately key ingredients to a healthy lifestyle but here at QFC, we seek to improve your ability to adapt to the stress that can't be eliminated or reduced.  By improving the function and balance of your central nervous system, which governs and manages stress for us chiropractic plays a critical role in our battle against stress and it's harmful effects.
     
  • Infertility and Pregnancy-Related Care
    Pregnancy and childbirth are one of the greatest joys of womanhood and the miracle of life is a wonder to be celebrated. Struggling to acheive pregnancy can be stressful and when the process extends from months to years, these women go through a terrible amount anxiety during this process. What is more, if they turn to Western Medicine for help they are often subjected to enormous amounts of medication and related side effects that leave them emotionally stressed, fatigued and ill.
    By lessening the stress on the spine and nervous system, we can often improve a woman’s overall function and balance, allowing her to body to safely accomodate pregnacy completely naturally. It is the central nervous system that controls all hormonal function, so by first balancing the nervous system, we can often balance hormones naturally and easily.

  • Colic
    "My daughter Arianna, like all children, occasionally has a fall or bump that results in tears of pain and frustration. I know how helpless I feel when she runs to daddy to make it feel better and there's little I can do except try to soothe away the hurt.  I can't imagine having a new baby who cries for hours and hours and being truly helpless to make their pain and discomfort go away for them.  The parents who come to our office looking for help for their children are heroes to me. Helping them to help their little ones is my passion." ~ Dr. Bruce
    Chiropractic adjustments are extremely effective in helping with colic and fussiness. Many times the colic is caused by an upper neck injury from birth trauma, and the sooner it is adjusted and corrected, the sooner the child can calm down, relax, and sleep. The impact this has on the family, and that child’s future, is immeasurable.
