Can Problems in the Neck Affect Speech?

In this blog we have regularly talked about how a misalignment can occur due to accidents and injuries and how these upper neck misalignments affect the all-important nervous system.  We have talked about how kids that are in alignment live healthier lives. They sleep better, they digest better, their minds work better and they just live better.

But can they speak better too?

Approximately 10% of all kids have a speech or language development delay.

Scientific research tells us when a child has suffered a misalignment in their upper neck the brain and nervous system is severely affected.  Blood and cerebrospinal fluid flow is changed, leading to changes in the way the brain is actually functioning.

A gentle NUCCA correction of this misalignment changes the way the brain is working and restores proper mental function allowing symptoms to improve naturally.

Amazing Case Study!!

Here’s an example from a research study conducted on a 13-year-old girl who had severe speech and mental delays and was unable to normally use her left arm. The patient had a tested verbal ability of a 3-year-old, would not make eye contact, and when she spoke, she would only speak in simple nouns.

Following the initiation of NUCCA care, she began to normally use her left arm, she made eye contact following the first correction and began to speak in complete sentences.

Are you ready to see if your child can speak and process like the other kids?
