Can Chiropractic Adjustments Help with ADHD or ADD?
Studies and case reports have demonstrated a link between improved behaviors and symptoms of children diagnosed with attention deficit disorder or attention deficit hyperactivity disorder while under chiropractic care. Gentle spinal adjustments and therapies are typically performed while under chiropractic care, and many patients and parents of patients have reported improvements in their children’s diagnosed ADHD and ADD symptoms and behaviors.
A popular approach to controlling symptoms of ADHD is to administer regular doses of methylphenidate which is more commonly known as the medication Ritalin. Ritalin is a schedule II controlled substance related to, and producing similar effects as, amphetamines and cocaine. Tests have shown that the side effects which include personality changes and permanent damage to the brain make many parents look for alternatives such as help from their Chiropractor.
Instead of treating the various symptoms of ADHD or hyperactivity, we look for problems with the child’s nervous system. We often find alignment issues caused by spinal distortions in the upper neck.
This link between the spine, brain stem dysfunction and ADHD is more common than your doctor will let on.
A thorough chiropractic examination can reveal spinal distortion which can cause a reversal of the normal neck curve. That’s why we often recommend safe and natural chiropractic adjustments to help reduce the accompanying nervous system tension.
