Expect a miracle. Kendzior AT, Sarasota, FL. ICPA Newsletter Jan/Feb 1998. “My son took a serious fall as a baby and immediately stopped having bowel movements. After months, I was told that we might need to do an exploratory surgery to determine if there was a blockage. I had been trying to adjust him, but wasnʼt sure what I was feeling. Dr. Larry Webster examined him, adjusted him and taught me how to locate subluxations in a babyʼs lumbar spine. It was miraculous, the next day he started having normal bowel movements. This miracle response to an adjustment I now know is very common in kids. This same child started severely stuttering at the age of 2. This was correlated to his fall. Finally, I attended another course with Dr. Webster who shared with me the Webster Cranial Technique. He assured me that it had helped children with stuttered speech, epilepsy, and learning disabilities. He advised me that before my son got better he might appear worse, but within two weeks he would stop stuttering completely. Sure enough, two weeks to the day that I started adjusting him, he stopped stuttering. This was a child who previously repeated a word twenty times and then, frustrated, gave up.”

Stuttering, hyperactivity, slow learner, retarted growth. Case Study. Webster, L. Chiropractic Showcase Magazine, Vol. 2, Issue 5, Summer 1994. This 7 year old male child was placed under care on February 14, 1994 with the following clinical picture: Hyperactivity, stuttering, slow learner, retarded growth, left leg approximately 1” shorter than right with a limp while walking. Medical plans were to break the left leg, insert metal rods in an attempt to stimulate growth and equalize leg lengths. Our examination consisted of Metrecom evaluation, full spine X-rays, and chiropractic examination of the spine. Areas of subluxation were as follows: Sacrum anterior, inferior on left, 5th lumbar body left, atlas, anterior superior left. Patient was placed on an intensive correction program of 3 times weekly for a period of two months. During the first seven visits the legs were never balanced, however, each time a reduction of the short leg occurred. On the 8th visit the legs balanced for the first time. Also noticed by 8th visit:

The stuttering had stopped.

The grades in school had risen from non-satisfactory to satisfactory.

The hyperactivity had abated.

The limp was no longer constant.
