The Chiropractor!!

Well, I found out today that I am a SMART mom! I've been worried about my 9 year old's development for the past few months, but I've put it off forever. Last week I noticed his right leg is shorter than his left leg by 1 inch. So I bit the bullet and made him an appointment with a Chiropractor.

That appointment was today, and it turns out--it's far more than just his leg! Every joint up and down his body is off. For some reason he's growing in wrong--and the left side is higher than the right. I'm not sure what the prognosis will end up being. We have his follow-up appointment next Tuesday, he's going to send the x-rays to a specialist just in case Jake needs a little bit more care. I'm hoping it isn't anything horrible. Just an adjustment or two, but I've got scoliosis running through my brain--and it's hard to get that out!

I'm hoping when we get him all worked out, he will get to be a normal little kid again. As it is, he hates to run--lots of activities are not fun for him, and if heare pain or discomfort--who can blame him? So I'm hoping once he's finished--he'll love basketball again!
