Childhood Constipation

Childhood Constipation

Our daughter was born a healthy baby girl on June 24, 2003. However when she was approximately 6 months old she began to suffer from severe constipation. As parents we tried everything we were told to aid in regularity. We increased her fibre intake as well as her water intake, we tried movement exercises, and even suppositories, but nothing changed. It was extremely painful for her and painful for us to watch. At the same time, she was struggling to roll over and stand straight, and suffered from re-occurring ear infections. After a month of trying everything, we were convinced that there was nothing that could be done.

In discussion with Dr. Scholten he suggested that she be examined and treated with Chiropractic (if necessary). At 7 months of age, she had her first adjustment by Dr. Scholten. The results were amazing. Within 48 hours she began to roll over, her posture improved and within 5 days she started having regular bowel movements! Best of all, she has never had another ear infection.

She is now 15 months old and a thriving toddler. Recently she started having problems with constipation and once again Dr. Scholten examined and treated her. Within 24 hours of treatment, she became regular again!

We feel that without Dr. Scholten’s care, she would still be suffering. We can’t thank him enough and would highly recommend him.
