Drug-Free Options for ADD & ADHD

adhd-imageAttention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) is unfortunately a common behavioral disorder.

It is estimated that as many as 5 million children in the United States are afflicted with attention deficit disorder in varying degrees.

Symptoms often cluster with hyperactivity to include

  • Lack of concentration and difficulty sitting still
  • Short attention span
  • Impulsivity
  • Fidgetiness
  • Low frustration tolerance
  • Difficulty with compliance
  • Poor social interaction

A Drug-Free Treatment Alternative

Traditional methods are aimed at turning down the child’s level of activity with the use of pharmaceutical drugs. With uncertainty in the safety of prescription psychostimulants as the medical treatment, and as the side effects, including personality changes and permanent changes to the brain, cause many parents to look for alternatives. More and more are wisely turning to chiropractic.

Chiropractic is a drug-free ADD treatment, addressing the important relationship between the nervous system and the body. There are multiple research articles on the effectiveness of chiropractic adjustments on ADHD and that chiropractic care is the most popular choice of all the alternative therapies.

The statistics show that chiropractic care was 20-40 percent more effective than commonly used medications. By having subluxations corrected, your child will have a better opportunity to be as healthy as possible. However, since ADHD appears as a neurological disorder and chiropractic care helps reduce nervous system disturbances, many parents who want a natural, non-drug solution for their child have found chiropractic care helpful, even miraculous.

Children that were taking medications before beginning treatment even had decreases in dosage or were able to stop completely because they were no longer needed. Let the testimonials speak for themselves!

Most parents start with making nutritional and lifestyle changes. Remove sugar, artificial sweeteners, food dyes, preservatives and additives from the diet. Eat as natural and organic food as possible. Aldo try to reduce the use of chemicals in the household including cleaning products, detergents, and fabric softeners.

An ADHD Success Story

Hi I’m AJ’s mom, Rose. AJ was born with torticollis which means one side of his neck was over develop in the other side was underdeveloped. He was delivered by C-section 11 days early. I carried very high in my pregnancy and at delivery he hadn’t even dropped n position to be delivered so he had to be pushed down to be delivered. He was 9 pounds and 15 ozs at birth. Since third grade has suffered with some focusing issues at school and home. Homework, classwork and reading were becoming an issue. He couldn’t stay on topic or be still physically.

This past school year, things got worse. At first we thought it was just 5th grade was harder, however 3 hours a night to complete homework just wasn’t right. We had him tested and found out he suffers from mild to moderate ADHD with primarily focus issues and from dyslexia.

After attending the Perfect Storm session we did a reevaluation and started a series of treatments with Dr. Saylor and Dr. Ashley at Van Every Chiropractic. After one month’s time we have seen a major change happen with not only his scans but in his behavior. He’s no longer very hyper and climbing the walls and bouncing around. He’s more focused and concentrated in his conversations, and he is calmer. And have even noticed some improvement with his focus and attention in his summer reading and doing chores. AJ is very aware of what is going on and is working to improve his posture as well as his physical health. We have chosen not to use prescription drugs to treat him but to go more natural healing with adjustments. We can’t wait to see what the new school year brings for AJ as he continues his maintenance treatments. Thank you to Dr. Saylor and Dr. Ashley!
