ADHD, or Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, is increasingly being given as a diagnosis to children who experience difficulties in school or at home. This can be a problem that affects them for the rest of their life, having to take increasing doses of medication into adulthood as prescribed by a medical doctor.
We want to offer you an alternative to a lifelong prescription and the stigma a child feels when they’re diagnosed with a problem.
How It Happens
Being diagnosed with ADHD is a very unspecific process. It is a neurological problem, which means that it’s related to your body’s nerves and nervous system. There is no set of specific symptoms or problems that a child with ADHD has, and the causes of ADHD are equally numerous.
If a child is easily distracted, restless, or impulsive, the chances are good that they could be diagnosed with ADHD.
Help With Chiropractic Care
Chiropractic deals with your nervous system, which is all the nerves and cells that carry messages from your brain and down your spinal cord to all the parts of your body. Because ADHD involves the nervous system, a chiropractor may find places in your child’s spine that aren’t aligned properly. Chiropractic adjustments may help allowing the messages to be sent and received correctly.
Through chiropractic care, your child’s nervous system, and in turn brain function, may be restored to full capacity. An evaluation of your child can be done at our practice to find out whether chiropractic care is the alternative.
