Attention Deficit Activity Disorder (ADHD) is on the rise in the United States. In fact, one out of every 10 children is being diagnosed with it. Common treatment plans involve a combination of behavioral therapy, school accommodations and medications.
Symptoms of children with ADHD include:
- Lack of focus
- Difficulty staying on topic
- Easily distracted
- Always on the go
- Talking excessively
- Have difficulty taking turns
One of the complaints many parents have with traditional ADHD treatments is the side effects that the medications can cause. Agitation, anxiety, insomnia, loss of appetite, weight loss, nausea and vomiting.
Because ADHD is a disorder of the nervous system, chiropractic medicine can help. Chiropractic adjustments can stimulate the nervous system to work properly by enabling the nerves to operate the way they were intended to.
