Dr. Adam actually wrote his thesis on a condition related to pregnancy where a patient (one of many) was having difficulty standing or sitting without pain after only a few moments. This patient was pregnant with her second child at the time and noticed that the pain started toward the end of her first trimester and continued to worsen. This was due to her pelvis not expanding as it is supposed to during her pregnancy. After several adjustments, and pelvic floor muscle therapies not only was she able to sit for longer than 10 minutes without pain but she was able to sit and stand for hours at a time with no discomfort at all.
When her son was born he also had some trouble latching and nursing. Her instincts told her to come see us for him as well, and to no surprise he had subluxations (misalignments) in his upper cervical (neck) and his TMJ (jaw). This made nursing extremely painful for him and caused him to fatigue quickly not getting the much needed nutrients. After his first adjustment Dr. Adam stepped out of the room and asked his mom to try to nurse and that he would return when she was done. When Dr. Adam checked back 20 minutes later he was still nursing, and continued to do so for nearly 45 minutes! He continued to get checked and needed to be adjusted from time to time but never had any further issues nursing, latching, or gaining nutrients. He is now in 5th grade and doing amazingly well. Mom, Dad, his sister, and little brother also continue to get adjusted to this day and are all doing well.
By the way the patient's next pregnancy went extremely well as she continued to get adjusted. Her child never even presented in the breach position as the other two pregnancies did until she was adjusted.
