Ninety percent of the neurological development and synaptic connections are completed by age 6. Myelination (Myelin is the covering on the spinal cord and nerves) of most of the axons of the major spinal tracks and the cerebrum are largely completed by the end of the second year of postnatal life, while full myelination is completed after the tenth year.
At birth the cerebellum grows so rapidly that by the onset of puberty its surface area has increased fourfold. Structures such as the reticular formation, commisssural neurons, and intercortical association areas mature after the tenth year of life. The dendrites of the cortical neurons are rudimentary at birth but during the first year of life, each cortical neuron develops 1,000 to 100,000 connections with other neurons.
Since by age six all of the motor and sensory functions we use as adults have been fully developed it is after this time that we can enhance these functional abilities and perfect their use. Damage at any stage prior to the preliminary development of these functions will cause compensatory patterns to either be learned or occur naturally to allow us to interact with our environment to the best of our ability.
“Birth related spinal cord injuries appears to be under diagnosed. Severe injuries cause death immediately; incomplete injuries can either cause death within the neonatal period or permit survival. In birth injuries, the upper cervical spine or the cervicothoracic junction is usually affected. However, and level of the spinal cord can be involved, and the involvement of multiple levels is not uncommon.”
Dickman, Rekate, Sonntag, Zabramski, Division of Neurological Surgery, Barrow Neurological Institute, Phoenix, AZ.
If corrections are not made at this point in time or soon afterwards studies show that these children will function at reduced capacity later in life. “Traumatization of the suboccipital structures inhibits functioning of the proprioceptive feedback loops. The motor development, though preprogrammed, cannot develop normally. These systems are fault tolerant and able to overcome considerable difficulties and restricted working conditions. But the price for this is a reduced capacity to absorb additional stress later. These children may show only minor symptoms in the first months of their life but later on at the age of 5 or 6 they suffer from headaches, postural problems or diffuse symptoms like sleep disorders, being unable to concentrate etc.”

“Without correction, aberrant motility of the motion units of the spine will inevitably result in spinal degeneration. With appropriate correction before the spinal degeneration occurs, there will be no spinal degeneration.”
Dr. Jan Jirout “Studies in the Dynamics of the Spine”
“Nerve tissue reacts adversely to stretching and the hypermobility of the spine causes nerves to stretch abnormally, causing immediate pathophysiological changes as well as long-term neuropathologic changes.”

Crippling Back Pain, Depression and Anxiety Are Gone Thanks To My Chiropractic Care. Thank You Elevation Health!
When I first started out at Elevation Health, my primary health concern was my crippling back pain. I was in a lot of pain every day and couldn’t stand to be on my feet more than a few minutes at a time. The pain was in my lower back, mid back and my neck. I had tried every over-the-counter treatment I could get my hands on. This went on for 6 or 8 years and led to a whole cornucopia of problems including depression and anxiety. I had been on anti-depressant medications since I was a child!
Someone from my grandmother’s church recommended we try Elevation Health. I had been to a chiropractor before but the atmosphere and treatment program is so much different at Elevation Health. I’ve learned how to take better care of myself and that gave me hope that this could help me.
After about 2 months of treatments, I found that I no longer needed Prozac! Now, there are no more pain killers and no more back pain! I’m feeling good physically, feeling good emotionally, and feeling good mentally. I’m feeling better than I have in a long, long time!

Before receiving chiropractic care at Elevation Health I was plagued constantly with headaches, really high blood pressure and despite medication, was constantly tired, had numbness into my right fingers and hand, and pain in my left hip and abdomen. These problems affected my activities of daily living- my circuits were really messed up!
I used to think that chiropractors were doctors who specialized in giving injections to individuals who were experiencing chronic joint pain. After attending the new patient orientation at Elevation Health, I was totally blown away with the level of knowledge and expertise of the doctors and staff. The level of trust I felt was profound from the first time I spoke with the doctors, and I was ready to entrust my care to them.
My health has improved tremendously! I have not had any headaches, soreness, or stress-related tension in my shoulders, no stomach or hip pain, and the numbness in my fingers has decreased by about 90%. I am now more energized at work, my blood pressure is trending down, and I feel like a new person. The interference in the circuit breaker is removed and “THE POWER IS ON!”
Chiropractic care is the experience of God’s laws of love, health and healing. It is holistic care at its best. It is an opportunity to live a long life of health and vitality, obtaining wisdom and the knowledge of health and applying it.
Thank you to the staff of Elevation Health for creating the “new me!”

GIVING YOUR CHILD THE GIFT OF LIFE
Comparative studies of children raised under chiropractic wellness care vs. those raised under traditional allopathic care showed that chiropractic children were less prone to infections such as otitis media (inner ear infections) and tonsillitis, and that their immune systems were better able to cope with allergens than the medically raised children. The children raised under the chiropractic wellness model used fewer antibiotics and pharmaceuticals overall. They also recovered far faster from ear infections, allergies, colds, bouts of pneumonia, flu viruses, and injuries.
We are passionate about keeping children and babies healthy at Elevation Health. It is our mission to make sure the families of our communities receive all the knowledge and resources necessary to live a life of health and vitality. Given that 65 percent of all neurological development occurs in the fi rst year of life, having your baby checked early is of utmost importance.
The nervous system is the system that interprets the environment. A child who does not properly receive information from the environment because of subluxation will have a distorted reality and diminished ability to express health. As a result of subluxation induced neurological disruption, these children will grow up being less than they could be.
