Caring for the Health of Your Children
Dr. Durso is committed to working with children from birth on to make sure that their nervous and immune system are functioning optimally they can so that these kids can have the best chance to live a healthy life! Spinal subluxations can occur during fetal development or during the birth process. Therefore, it is important that newborns be checked at birth by a pediatric chiropractor to ensure the baby is free of subluxations, allowing for proper communication and development. As the child grows, they are at risk to develop further subluxations from traumas such as falls while learning to walk or other repetitive injuries such as carrying heavy back packs, sitting at computers or playing sports. Maintaining a subluxation free spine throughout life is essential for optimum health! As a member of the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association, he has received advanced training in Pediatric Adjusting and Prenatal Care, including the Webster Technique.
In addition to looking at the birth history of a child, Dr. Durso will also evaluate their developmental history assessing whether or not they reached their milestones on time. Many children with neurodevelopmental disorders, behavioral or learning issues; have delays in reaching various developmental milestones. Or in some cases, have not carried out specific milestone movements correctly in the necessary amount of time needed, for proper neurological development. Neurodevelopmental disorders impair the growth and development of the brain and nervous system. These disorders include Autism Spectrum Disorder, Attention Deficit Disorder, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, Sensory Processing Disorder, as well as various psychiatric disorders. These children may also have retained Primitive Reflexes.
Not reaching these various developmental milestones or retaining various Primitive Reflexes, will impede the progress of higher and more sophisticated areas of brain and nervous systems development. This can result in poor motor, social, behavioral and academic learning. Based on each individual’s specific area of deficit, Dr. Durso offers special neuro-movement exercises, primitive reflex integration maneuvers and “brain” exercises to promote proper development of neuropathways, essential for learning and navigating through life.
Corrective Chiropractic for Adults
Dr. Durso utilizes a very specific corrective chiropractic technique. Digital x-rays are taken on all patients and their spinal alignment will be compared to the normal spine model. Dr. Durso will then recommend a corrective program consisting of postural adjustments and spinal rehab exercises. This technique is beneficial for a variety of musculo-skeletal complaints like neck and low back pain as well as conditions such as headaches/migraines. Most importantly, chiropractic adjustments are an essential part of health to ensure that your nervous system is functioning optimally!
The chiropractic model is a wellness-based form of healthcare, hence addressing health conditions at the root cause. Misalignments in the spine can impede the flow of energy and communication throughout the body, therefore preventing your nervous system from functioning properly. Nerves control ALL of the body’s organs, tissues, and functions. Even subtle disturbances in nerve function can lead to a decline in health, regardless of how well a person feels. Your body is constantly adapting to stress, and chiropractic plays a role in helping to restore it to normal, healthy function.
