chiropractors are trained to diagnose and treat a range of conditions related to the musculoskeletal system, which includes the bones, muscles, ligaments, and joints. Some of the conditions that people may seek chiropractic care for include: Back pain Neck pain Headaches and migraines Sciatica Whiplash Carpal tunnel syndrome Sports injuries Arthritis Fibromyalgia Scoliosis Pregnancy Chiropractic
Chiropractic care during pregnancy can offer numerous benefits for the expecting mother and her baby. Chiropractic adjustments help align the spine and pelvis, which can alleviate discomfort and pain, improve posture, and reduce stress on the nervous system. This can also improve the function of the uterus and pelvic muscles, making it easier for the baby to get into the best possible position for birth.
Upright posture is complex and maintained mainly by postural reflexes in the midbrain that utilize sensory input from the visual, proprioceptive, and vestibular systems.
Developing strong extensor muscles is a large and important part of getting an infant ready to sit up and eventually walk. Increased muscle tone and the help and eventually integration of primitive reflexes work together to not only getting us moving in an upright position but also to help the brain develop.
Retained primitive reflexes are often thought of as developmental problems in kids. But kids grow up, and integrated reflexes have side effects in adults, too. In adults, they can affect anything and everything from posture and balance to focus and energy. So, how do primitive reflexes affect energy levels in adults?
Your brain is meant to mature to a specific state that allows you to be independent of other humans. This “maturity” is called primitive reflex integration(@drrobertmelillo method). If primitive reflex integration doesn’t happen in the first 18 months of life, it will inhibit normal physiology in the brain and body.
Your brain needs three things: oxygen, fuel, and stimulation.The biggest stimulation comes from gravity! The type of receptors that do this are known as somatosensory receptors. These receptors also pick up on our muscle movements. The move muscle tone we have the more stimulation for these receptors!
The duck walk:To be honest, I didn't think much of this exercise until I saw it in action, and then I was very impressed. You want the child to walk with their feet turned out, and their hands turned in with thumbs pointing in. That sounds simple, right? They should be able to do this smoothly, walking back and forth.
A retained Fear Paralysis is associated with anxiety, paranoia, extreme fear, being easily overwhelmed, poor social skills, extremely attached to caregivers, inability to become attached to caregivers, over sensitivity to sensory simulations, elective mutism, extremely negative mindset, and temper tantrum (at an inappropriate age).
One of the most common questions I get is how long does it take to integrate retained primitive reflexes? The answer is complex.
Most professionals look at problems with the human body as isolated events. This is wrong and they will not get rid of your problem. They will waste your time. Find the right doctor for your injury, stay away from surgery until you have gone through all of the correct mediums of fixing your problem naturally, “without surgery or drugs.”
How important is it is to move consistently? Movement is directly linked to breathing fresh air. Oxygen to the brain is critical to you living a fruitful happy life. How do you maximize it? Read more to find out.

Assessing maturity and integrity in how the CNS is functioning through the examination. Primitive reflexes and postural reflexes appear and "disappear" at different stages of development. By assessing when and if these reflexes are present or not we can tell if or if not the central nervous system developing like it should.
Dyslexia - a learning disorder that involves difficulty reading due to problems identifying speech sounds and learning how they relate to letters and words (decoding). Also called reading disability, dyslexia affects areas of the brain that process language (LEFT Brain).
When primitive reflexes persist, a physical program to be optimally effective should be aimed at the earliest developmental and postural level of reflex abnormality. Kids or adults with retained/returned primitive reflexes tend to have poor posture, balance, and coordination.
