A child shouldn’t have to feel like the weight of the world is on their shoulders, but sometimes life isn’t always an easy start and our kids don’t feel comfortable in their own body’s.
Meet Shelby. Shelby is such a special human being who is one of Dr. Tony’s original perfect storm patients. This amazing young woman had a very difficult start to life- which began with exposure to extreme stress when she was a developing fetus. This was the start of a storm that led to many struggles and challenges down the road.
As she grew up, Shelby had extreme ADHD and focus issues. She couldn’t sit still or stay concentrating on anything which made it beyond difficult to do school. She was so easily overwhelmed by even the smallest things because her brain and body were primed for stress and survival mode- seeing everything as a threat.
Thankfully Shelby was referred to PWC by a behavioral vision specialist. Shelby said she remembered feeling like the weight of the world was on her shoulders and once she started getting adjusted-the weight was finally lifted off . Mom said that throughout the whole process she started noticing “little miracles” happening all the time. She said sometimes even immediately after the adjustments she would see a huge change in Shelby’s ability to calm down and focus (which made mom start to get adjusted too).
Until this very day, (about ten years later) this special lady continues to get adjusted to help her manage stress and be the very best version of herself. The perfect storm is no match for Shelby’s fighting spirit and neurological chiropractic care… it’s quite the combo Shelby’s continued wellness care at PWC means we get to see her weekly, and that makes us the lucky ones! We’re all a little obsessed with a good Shelby story around here.
