See the very end of this post... BABY'S FIRST SPINAL MANIPULATION... PREGNANT WOMEN: Baby's first spinal manipulation is NOT being performed by a chiropractor but rather by an MD-obstetrician! Chirpractors are GENTLE adjustors of babies' spines! MDs are senselessly gruesome manipulators - sometimes paralyzing spinal manipulators. Sometimes MD spinal manipulation KILLS. See below. Do NOT let the MD manipulate your baby's spine - not even "gently" - not with your birth canal senselessly closed up to 30%. To find out how EASY it is for you to allow your birth canal to OPEN the "extra" up to 30%, see LADIES below... CHIROPRACTORS...This Open Letter is for your possible reading interest. (Pregnant women, please forward this Open Letter to your chiropractors.) "When Ken and Mary Oldenkamp['s] son Derek became a Doctor of Chiropractic...Ken and Mary's [woodworking and craft] skills led to...treatment tables designed to enhance and improve the chiropractic experience for children." http://www.geocities.com/drtables/whoarewe.htm OPEN LETTER (archived for global access at: http://health.groups.yahoo.com/group/chiro- list/message/2331) Ken and Mary Oldenkamp Children's Chiropractic Tables 4490 Jefferson Ave. Alton, IA 51003 712-756- 4233 888-756-4233 [email protected] Ken and Mary, I thought you might be interested to know that... Most children receive their first spinal manipulation treatment not on chiropractic tables but on OBSTETRIC tables. MD-obstetricians - the most prolific spinal manipulators - are GRUESOME spinal manipulators. FACT: Dorsal (and semisitting) delivery positions (the most common medical delivery positions) close the birth canal up to 30%. The simple biomechanics are openly stated by MDs: "...the weight of the mother is in part taken on the sacrum which is therefore pushed upwards, thus decreasing the antero-posterior diameter of the pelvic outlet..." --British National Health Service/NHS West Midlands Perinatal Institute/WMPI, Jason Gardosi, MD, Director http://www.wmpi.net/reviews/oe/oe_shoulder_dystocia.htm This is NOT new information. The 30% figure is derived from clinical and radiographic studies from LAST CENTURY. See PhD husband of a CNM... http://health.groups.yahoo.com/group/chiro-list/message/2321 BOTTOMLINE... MDs are KNOWINGLY closing birth canals up to 30% at delivery - which is why I say they are gruesome spinal manipulators. ALL spinal manipulation with the birth canal senselessly closed is gruesome. With birth canals senselessly closed up to 30%, MDs are violently pushing on tiny spines (with Cytotec, oxytocin, PGE2) and also pulling gruesomely (with hands, forceps and vacuums)... Sometimes MDs pull so hard they rip spinal nerves out of tiny spinal cords! The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists/ACOG Shoulder Dystocia Drill video purports to show MDs how to OPEN birth canals when the shoulders get stuck - which means MDs know they are CLOSING birth canals in most births! Worse, when the shoulders get stuck inside mom, ACOG's video teaches MDs to KEEP the birth canal closed! See ACOG birth crime video evidence http://health.groups.yahoo.com/group/chiro-list/message/2300 Ken and Mary, please pass this info along to your son Derek. Encourage him to join me in encouraging chiropractic associations to help stop this awful (sometimes fatal, sometimes paralyzing) spinal manipulation crime. BTW, I am in favor of pardons in advance for MDs. MDs are just academic prime cuts forced through this culture's most powerful mental meatgrinder - medical school. Pardons in advance will allow MDs to keep doing their valid medical work so they will be in a better position to pay the inevitable civil damages. Thanks for reading, Sincerely, Todd Dr. Gastaldo [email protected] PS Ken and Mary, thanks for that e-mail advertisement for CHILDREN'S CHIROPRACTIC TABLES. http://health.groups.yahoo.com/group/chiro- list/message/2330 I would call them "adjustment" tables. They really are quite nice. Kids no doubt love them. http://www.geocities.com/drtables/index.htm Feel free to circulate this email to DCs. DCs taking medical histories of little patients should make sure and ask if the mother was on her back/butt closing her birth canal - especially if the birth was difficult. DCs with pregnant patients should warn that MDs are senselessly closing birth canals and gruesomely manipulating most babies' spines at birth - and tell women how easy it is for them to OPEN their birth canals the "extra" up to 30%. LADIES: To allow your birth canals to open the "extra" up to 30%, all you have to do is roll onto your side as you push your baby out - or go to hands-and-knees, kneeling, kneeling on one knee, standing, squatting - virtually ANY delivery position will do the trick EXCEPT dorsal or semisitting - both of which close the birth canal. Talk to your obstetricians and CNMwives about this TODAY - and show them my "alternative" delivery position WARNING... See again: ACOG birth crime video evidence http://health.groups.yahoo.com/group/chiro- list/message/2300 Ken and Mary: Another post that may be of interest to DCs...

Texas Super Lawyer JEFF RASANSKY says, "nnecessary birthing injuries occur during delivery...[Y]ou have the legal right to know if something could have been done to prevent those injuries." --Atty. Jeff Rasansky (2001 $11 million birth injury settlement was the largest in the State of Texas - in 2003 Jeff was voted Texas Super Lawyer) http://www.cerebralpalsytexas.com/birth_injuries.htm Copied to Texas Super Lawyer Jeff via http://www.cerebralpalsytexas.com/contact_form.htm KAREN SMITH, legal assistant at GOLDWATER LAW FIRM, PC 1-800-222-7852 [email protected] KAREN! Attorneys who represent birth injured children should be telling juries - and parents (!) - that MDs are senselessly closing birth canals up to 30% and gruesomely manipulating most babies' spines. I contacted you with this info via your www.erbspalsy.com website over two weeks ago! I telephoned you when I received your first email! You never returned my call! Now I've received a second email - a suggestion that you never received my initial online communication and subsequent telephone call! There is STILL nothing at Goldwater Law Firm's www.erbspalsy.com web site about MDs senselessly closing birth canals up to 30%. REMEMBER: The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists/ACOG Shoulder Dystocia Drill video purports to show MDs how to OPEN birth canals when the shoulders get stuck - which means MDs know they are CLOSING birth canals in most births! Worse, when the shoulders get stuck inside mom, ACOG's video teaches MDs to KEEP the birth canal closed!
