According to the Center for Disease Control, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) is one of the most common neurobehavioral disorders of childhood. It is a condition that is estimated to affect 11% of all children in the United States and 6% of all children are on ADHD medication such as Ritalin or Strattera. Many parents wish there was some other way to manage the symptoms without the use of stimulants, anti-depressants and other drug combinations. That’s where chiropractic care can help.
ADHD is a problem that originates from the frontal cortex of the brain is not working properly. Reasons for this could be suppression of nerve function to that area as well as inadequate blood flow.
When there is a subluxation in the cervical vertebrae, the subsequent pressure that it applies to the nerves leaving that area of the spine can be responsible for hindering both the nervous system and circulatory system and cause the corresponding area that they feed to be at a deficit.
At Chiropractic Healing Center, we can restore proper function to the frontal cortex through a variety of methods:
- Spinal Manipulations/Adjustments
- Nutritional Advice
- Lifestyle Counseling
Chemical medications are not the only option for children diagnosed with ADHD or many other common childhood ailments such as colic, bedwetting, ear infections and asthma.
