Chiropractic care  for ADHD or Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder

Although we do not treat ADHD or Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder specifically, chiropractic care can reduce disturbances in the nervous system, the source for this ailment. Chiropractic care is an excellent choice for a natural solution without the side effects of harmful medication.

ADHD symptoms noticed most often by parents and teachers include:

  • Constant motion
  • Distracted by noises and other activities
  • Lack of impulse control
  • Inability to concentrate and sit still
  • Inattentiveness and excessive activity

There are some environmental and nutritional changes that parents can make to reduce external ADHD factors:

  • Remove all sugar and sugar substitutes.
  • Take away preservatives, additives and food dyes in the diet.
  • Concentrate on more natural and organic foods.
  • Investigate potential allergies to certain foods.
  • Reduce chemical use in detergents and cleaning supplies.

More conventional treatment of ADHD involves medications like Ritalin® and Adderall®. These are controlled substances that are like powerful drugs such as amphetamines and cocaine. Side effects can result in permanent brain and personality changes.

Chiropractic intervention for ADHD involves examining disturbances in the nervous system. There are often spinal deformities in the upper neck that can cause problems. A chiropractic exam can reveal issues that can be addressed with spinal manipulation and adjustments to reduce tension in the nervous system.
