Addressing ADHD Naturally Through Chiropractic

Perhaps your child has trouble focusing on schoolwork or has a difficult time sitting still in class. They likely are dealing with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). This brain disorder is characterized by an ongoing pattern of inattention and/or hyperactivity-impulsivity that interferes with functioning or development.

If your child has ADHD, you likely have explored one or more avenues to address the disorder. These include changing diet, adding supplements, or seeing a specialist who prescribed one or more medications. We offer a different approach.

Calming the Nervous System

If the brain and nervous system are sensing stressful information, the body will get stuck in a survival mode until that sensory input changes. That’s what ADHD really is. It’s a child who is locked in survival mode. Fortunately, chiropractic can help to address ADHD. Though chiropractic doesn’t treat ADHD, it calms the nervous system.

We use Koren Specific Technique (KST), a style of adjusting that doesn’t involve cracking or popping, but cranial work that directly affects the brain.

Testing, Not Guessing

Before we can address your child’s ADHD, we perform a physical examination and a computerized postural analysis that will show us how their spine is being affected. Then, we perform a series of painless, noninvasive tests using the Insight Subluxation Station. These tests don’t use X-rays, so no radiation is involved.
