Crib Death

Professor Abraham Towbin

In 1969, Professor Abraham Towbin, M.D., reported on the results of a study he conducted at Harvard Medical School's department of neuropathology on spinal cord and brainstem injuries in newborn infants. Professor Towbin conducted autopsies on more than 2,000 newborn infants who had died shortly after birth. In his report "Latent Spinal Cord and Brainstem Injuries in Newborn Infants," Professor Towbin summarized his findings as follows:

"Spinal cord and brainstem injuries occur often during the process of birth, but frequently escape diagnosis. Respiratory depression in the neonate is a cardinal sign of such injury. In infants who survive there may be lasting neurological defects reflecting the primary injury; in some, secondary hypoxic damage to the cerebrum may ultimately be manifested as cerebral palsy."

Reviews By Our Satisfied Patients

  • "This in itself was wonderful, but as my chiropractic journey has continued, more wonderful discoveries keep developing. Just other day, while on my chiropractors table, I suddenly realized I had no pain in my stomach which I have suffered daily with for 3 years, taking Zantac almost everyday. I couldn't believe my pain was gone, and was happy to give up the Zantac with its side effects damaging the liver and causing insomnia to name two.
    I now sleep better, I'm off medication, my stomach and shoulders feel much better. In addition, both my feet would hurt everyday, now that my spine and skeletal structure balance better, my feet don't hurt. Also my neck, and low back feel better and my head. Overall, my health and just feeling of well being have improved immensely. I am now wondering what the future holds as I make more wonderful health revelations while receiving chiropractic care."
