Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)

adhd_chiropracticAttention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, or ADHD for short, is a relatively common condition that tends to emerge in children during their early school years. Some of the most common signs of ADHD include the following:

  • Inattention
  • Hyperactivity
  • Impulsive Behavior
  • Difficulty Concentrating

There are around 11% of American Children who have an Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). Chiropractic therapy can help your child with an Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder by aligning the skull to aid with brain development. Chiropractors are known for treating those with back pains, headaches, or injuries over time. An individual can develop trauma from the back from infancy and continue on out until their adulthood. Overtime, chiropractors believe this may cause the spine to be aligned poorly, so the body will not function until it is aligned. It is a similar concept with someone that has an Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, if the skull is not aligned properly, there may be uneven pressure on the brain that develops this disorder.

The Benefits of Chiropractic Therapy for Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder

A chiropractor begins treatment by the examination of a child’s reflexes, hearing, and vision. Based on the exams and findings by the professional, treatment is done with what is needed the most. Chiropractors are the most adept at treating an Attention Hyperactivity Disorder because they are the most trained on the nervous system and the affects on the human experience. The relationship between the neurosensory receptors found in the spine, spinal chord, dura, joints, muscles, and cerebellar function is important because it is what improves concentration, attention span, memory, mood stability, kinetic energy, and impulse control.

An imbalance in the spine is what causes imbalances to the brain and how a child may develop an Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder. Simply by aligning the spine back how it should be, the child may begin to see improvements. Chiropractors also believe that by locating the bones of the skull that may be misaligned, which causes pressure on the brain making it work improperly, realigning those bones can make the brain work as it should again. Once the root of the problem is located, chiropractors can begin their treatment. Whether it be aligning the spine or bones of the skull. Chiropractic therapy has been able to help many children with an Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder by reducing their symptoms and in the long run their overall health.
