Maks and the Chiropractor

For the past two years Maks has woken up at least once every few nights screaming that his legs hurt. Some nights are worse than others but we just never knew what we could do to fix it.  After x-rays, blood work and numerous conversations with the Dr. we just weren't finding anything.  If he woke up and we gave him Tylenol or Ibuprofen he did go back to sleep but we did not like having to give him medicine on a daily basis.  

After literally years of listening to Maks complain we finally decided to try a new method of treatment.  We took him to see a chiropractor.  After visit with Dr. Lackey and deciding what we thought had happened Maks got a lower back and hip adjustment.  After just one visit Maks had completely stopped complaining.
Maks did so well at the appointment I believe he actually fell asleep.   We are happy he finally got some relief. 

While there we talked to Dr. Lackey about the bumps he has on his face. He gave him some things that he thinks will help.  Maks now takes Arnica tablets, Cod Liver Oil, and a probiotic.  Yup that is right, Maks takes Cod Liver Oil and loves it. He takes it daily and even reminds us when he needs to take it. His face is starting to clear up very quickly, we are really happy with our decision to see the chiropractor and so is he!
