Children need adjustments too!

Video Transcript

I’m Dr. Alibhai. Today, we have Finn on the table here. He’s one of the most active seven-year-olds we’ve encountered in our practice. He originally came to us due to various growing pains, which are often caused by the natural growth process and resulting imbalances in the spine and legs. As children become more active, different stress levels can affect various parts of the body. Today, we’re going to reassess Finn. It’s been a few weeks since his last visit, and we’ll check his knees, pelvis, and back to ensure everything is in order again.

Alright, Finn, we’re looking for any imbalance in your hips here. I’ll apply a little pressure through there.

Now, some pressure through the glutes. Okay, buddy. A little pressure on the sit bone. Good. And here, can you put your left hand behind your back for me? This one? Perfect, yeah. Bring that arm back down. Now the right hand behind your back. Both hands behind your back. My mom might actually be here. Both hands behind your back.

Perfect. Back down by your side. Very good. Turn your head to the left, back to the center, and to the right, then back to the center again. Lift your head up for me and back down.

Tuck your chin towards your chest. Let it go and relax. And gently push your head into the table. And let it go. Good job. Alright, we’re going to focus on this spot right here. This is the nerve that affects the eye and runs down your arm. A little pressure here, buddy, just on our lightest setting.

Is that comfortable? Mm-hmm. Let’s check your knees now. Good job. Yeah. Good. We’re going to adjust the inside of the knee through here. This was the knee that was bothering you, huh? Yeah. There’s definitely a little bit of an imbalance here. We’re going to adjust this one as well. Okay.

Both hands on top of the table for me. Back down by your side. And we’re going to do one more adjustment through here. You’re feeling it through here as well, right? Yeah. A little bit more there. Awesome, buddy. Finn, is there anything else I can check for you? Uh, behind, like, right around my ear, back here, for a little bit, when I try to, like, when I do this, it just starts stinging, and it feels like it’s going out, but I know it’s not, but it just feels like that.

Let me get my hands up here. Okay.

Yeah. We’re going to adjust the top here. A little light pressure here. There we go. That’s the nerve that comes back here. So let me know if that helps you out, and then we’ll check that again in a couple of weeks. Okay. Sound good? Mm-hmm. Good job.
