Almost every day I receive phone calls from frustrated mothers who want me to check their children. Allergies. Asthma. Wheezing. Bronchitis. Ear infections. Steroid inhalers. Emergency room visits. Nothing works. I am pleased that there is an appreciation for and curiosity about chiropractic and children. It’s obvious parents are now open more than ever to natural solutions to their kids’ health issues. Yay. Glad to help.
A nice e-mail from a nice patient: “Wanted to let you know that since the boys were adjusted they are happier, slept better today and hoping they kick their colds faster. Just goes to show what a difference coming on a weekly basis does. We might just come in on Wednesday too!! Thanks, Brenna”
Another nice e-mail from another rock star mom: “Hey Dr. Caroline, I wanted to thank you for the time you spent with me and my husband today. I know you had others waiting, but he really needed the extra explanation. He comes from a family that didn’t focus on good health. Kwame never has had an exercise routine, doesn’t eat right nor take vitamins, so when I came to him saying how I wanted to try an all natural way to prevent Jaden’s ear infections, he wasn’t too thrilled about the idea. He understands everything you explained and has given me the okay to move forward with plan. We feel a little overwhelmed by the total cost of this care, but we are pulling out the plastic and will find a way to pay of the credit card. I know you said that you can’t guarantee anything, but your confidence in yourself has instilled confidence in us. I definitely wouldn’t trust my little man to just any chiropractor. This situation is very serious to me (ear infections), and your concern, personality and office sticks out like a sore thumb…a good sore thumb. So, we’ll see you next week. P.S. You have a great personality to joke with, and I hope you didn’t take any of my jokes seriously. Ashley.” Ashley travels an hour each way to visit Balance Atlanta.
