Pediatric asthma, constipation, incontinence and orthdontic issues - young boy posing - Gillespie Approach–Craniosacral Fascial Therapy

Pediatric Asthma, Constipation, and Incontinence Along With Orthodontic Issues

What do pediatric asthma, constipation, and incontinence have in common?

They are all treatable conditions originating from trauma to the craniosacral fascial system.

A ten-year-old boy presented with asthma, constipation, and incontinence. He had a rough start in life. At day seven, a nurse burned his heel in the doctor’s office. At two weeks, his mother fell down the stairs while holding him. At three years of age, he tumbled down wooden stairs.

Clinically, he had a zero-second brain cycle and pelvic strain traversing into his head. Let’s connect the dots.

  • He was unable to spread his legs apart indicating tight fascia in his urogenital system. He did not wet the bed at night but had leakage during the day when active.
  • He was constipated as an infant. Mom questioned why he could not have a bowel movement for seven or eight days at a time. The pediatrician said this was in “normal” range and not to worry. He was showing tight fascia in his intestinal area indicating a lack of peristalsis that was resulting in bowel stasis.
  • His respiratory system was tight and twisted, restricting his lung function and causing asthmatic symptoms. His albuterol was just managing the disease.
  • His orthodontic issues of narrow arches, a high palate, and an open bite, indicating a tongue thrust, stemmed from fascial tightness. After my therapy, he needs to see a “brain friendly” orthodontist and myofunctional therapist.

None of these issues are connected in current healthcare thought. But if multiple traumas restrict the craniosacral system, which is encased in the full-body fascial web, it all makes perfect sense. I expect him to do well as his brain cycle opened to 60 seconds, and his web freed up nicely.

These children are everywhere in America. Pediatric thinking must change to prevent many conditions rooted in trauma. Gillespie Approach Training is a must for all neonatal providers.
