I first met Dr. Paul in February of 2001. My initial contact with him was over concerns I had for our 8 month old daughter who was battling chronic ear infections, and also had respiratory issues.
At four months we were already using an inhaler with her, while also using endless stream of antibiotics to combat her ear infections. Neither the inhaler nor the antibiotics seem to ward off her afflictions with any kind of sustained success.
Our next step was to see a Respiratory Specialist at Children’s Hospital. After consultation at Children’s, we had graduated from an inhaler to a nebulizer (an in home breathing machine.) It was from this that our daughter inhaled steroids like albuterol and pulmicort through a mask. You can imagine how thrilled an eight month old is to cooperate with that each day.
We wanted to do what was best for our daughter, and we thought we were doing so. I still was not satisfied with the progress of her health when I was referred to a chiropractor of all people. (I thought they were just for backs.)
After consulting with Dr. Paul, we started a program with him and within six weeks our daughter was off all medications and has not taken an antibiotic since. She is now 6 and we are blessed with a perfectly healthy, happy daughter.
We also take our 4 year old son, 2 year old daughter, and newborn daughter to Dr. Paul with equally successful results. My wife and I also see Dr. Paul, and we credit him with keeping our bodies healthy.
What I realized with Dr. Paul is how important it is for the nerves in our spine to work harmoniously in order for our bodies to maintain peak performance. Drugs that we consume because they are so easy only mask a symptom, and do no cure the cause of the problem.
Chiropractic gets to the cause of the pain or affliction and lets your body basically heal itself.
In closing, I would highly suggest seeing a chiropractor for anything that is causing you pain or discomfort. Riegleman Chiropractic has been wonderful for our family and will be for yours too. Dr. Paul and his staff are highly competent, knowledgeable and a joy to see each visit.
