“I was that person….that Mom….the Mom who doubted a Chiropractor could help my son. After all, he was only 8 months old. He is so little and fragile. I was afraid a chiropractor would hurt my baby and he would be paralyzed.
At 6 months old, my son climbed out of his stroller and fell head first onto the ground. Within a week, my son was throwing up at least 6 or 7 times a day. I took him to his pediatrician who had us try different formulas. This worked for about a week. Then we were back to where we started. He had us try a few different types of acid reflux medicine, as that was my son’s diagnosis. After trying these medicines, my son was still throwing up just as often. We ended up in Children’s Mercy Hospital having a sonogram done to see if he had pyloric stenosis; also negative. Our last option was to have our son scoped and possibly exploratory surgery. I finally went in to see Dr. Brakhage, when my son was almost 10 months old and had spent the last couple of months throwing up constantly.
She took the time to go through my son’s history. She talked to us about his treatment and told us that coming to her was not an instant fix, but to allow her time to work with him and his little body. She was so gentle with him, and he had no problems allowing her to work with him. I can tell you that within 2 weeks, my son was off the most expensive formula (Nutramigen) and within 2 months, he was off his acid reflux medicine and keeping food down.
Today, my son is almost 2 years old and he continues to be adjusted on an as needed schedule. Dr. Brakhage is my miracle…miracle for my son, miracle for my family”
