Management of Pediatric Asthma & Enuresis with Probable Traumatic Etiology
By Trent Bachman, D.C. and Charles Lantz, D.C., PhD.
The chiropractic management of asthma and enuresis of traumatic etiology in a two-year, ten-month-old male child. In May 1987 at the age of 22 months, the child was medically examined and subsequently diagnosed with asthma. In an attempt to control the asthmatic symptoms, two medications were prescribed, Metaproterenal Syrup and Theodore Sprinkle. On May 20, 1988, the child was seen for chiropractic examination and evaluation and, from that date to August 3, 1991, the child received 28 chiropractic adjustive/manipulative treatments. Dramatic improvement of asthma and enuresis followed chiropractic management. The application of Gonstead adjustive/manipulative therapy and the rationale for the correction of vertebral subluxation complex in the case of childhood asthma and enuresis are discussed.

Managing the Third-T for Successful Labor and Delivery
By Lisa Connors, D.C., D.I.C.C.P.
It is a scientific fact that our nervous, endocrine, and immune systems are interconnected. A grand highway of cellular information allows these three systems to continually “talk” to one another, sending important messages back and forth across organs, cells, and DNA. Our thoughts and feelings are part of the mechanisms responsible for activating and deactivating these highways. This article addresses the Third-T in pregnancy and provides methods for managing Third-T concerns for a successful labor and delivery.

An Effective Drug-Free Approach to Premature Contractions
By Carol Phillips, D.C.
