Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) is a form of mental health condition often impacting kids from the age of 4 to 11. This condition is also more prevalent in males than in females and often impacts the ability to sit still, concentrate in class, and handle sudden urges or impulses. Some of the unwanted effects that common ADHD medications will have include:
- Loss of appetite
- Significant fatigue
- Emotional issues
- Depression, and more
Why Chiropractic Care for ADHD?
When a child is diagnosed with ADHD, there is generally nerve interference throughout the brainstem that leads to a disruption of sorts within the body. In some instances, there could be a spinal misalignment that causes misfires or the inability to send and receive messages to and from the child’s brain. It can help correct misalignments with gentle adjustments, thus allowing the nerves and brainstem to work smoothly.
Once this nerve interference is no longer an issue, many children can control impulses, start to concentrate, and manage their overall ADHD symptoms much easier.
