Explaining Unexplainable Health Problems
Unexplainable health problems can be very frustrating. Often times, the answers can be traced back to your childhood.
Think about this! How many times a day do young children fall? According to Introduction to Infant Development, fourteen-month-old toddlers can fall an average of fifteen times per hour while playing, up to 100 times a day.
These cumulative and repetitive bumps on the bottom can cause problems in the spine and nervous system that alter development, posture and the function of the nervous system contributing to unexplainable health problems immediately and down the road. Similar problems can be caused by birth trauma, poor sleep patterns, smart phones and sports injuries, as well as chemical and emotional stress.
In fact, “Medically Unknown Symptoms” [MUS] is a common term used to explain many unexplainable symptoms such as pain, irritable bowel, non-cardiac chest pain and fibromyalgia for which there are no medical examination findings [Hatcher, S, Arrol B. Assessment and management of medically unexplained symptoms. BMJ 2008; 336:1124].
Some studies have even found the prevalence of MUS to be in the range 25 to 75 percent [Smith RC, Dwamena FC. Classification and diagnosis of patients with medically unexplained symptoms. J Gen Intern Med 2007; 22:685].
Explaining the Unexplainable
The nervous system controls and coordinates the function of every cell, tissue and organ of the body, and adapts you to your environment. Injuries to a child’s spine and nervous system can be subtle and are often missed during traditional medical examinations. The symptoms can mimic the most common childhood diagnoses such as ear infections, colic, allergies and growing pains, or they can lie dormant and asymptomatic for decades leading to decay and deterioration down the road.
While toddlers are young and flexible, the sheer quantity and variety of these microtraumas can injure the spine and nervous system causing uneven growth and developmental patterns that lead to lifelong problems and unhealthy aging.
Chiropractic examinations can uniquely assess the health of your child’s spine and nervous system and, in many cases, explain the unexplainable. Every person should have one regardless of their age.
These non-invasive evaluations can determine alignment, locate inflammation and identify nervous system pressure, dysfunction, imbalance and interference that can affect a child’s health, development and emotions, as well as their ability to focus and function normally.
Immediate and long-term solutions to unexplainable health concerns may be more readily available than you think. If you are an adult with unexplainable health problems, chances are that your childhood may be catching up with you today.
Avoiding unexplained health problems with Lifestyle Care is an even better, more proactive approach. Don’t wait for a crisis to force you to act. Schedule your examination today.
