A Chiropractor Approach to ADD/ADHD
Chiropractic care can benefit those diagnosed with ADD or ADHD. In the United States, 11% of school-aged children have been diagnosed with ADHD. This number has significantly increased in the last 15 years.
Stimulant drugs are the most common traditional medical approach to ADD and ADHD. Approximately 6.1% of school-aged children are taking medications for ADD and ADHD. This number continues to increase. Compared to typical medical treatments involving stimulant drugs, the chiropractic approach to ADD and ADHD offers a natural and sustainable approach to regulating your child's nervous system.
The majority of ADD and ADHD cases should be considered states of imbalance in the nervous system, rather than a disorder. Physical and emotional stressors can lead to spinal misalignments, known as subluxations. These subluxations disrupt proper nervous system communication. By correcting subluxations with chiropractic adjustments, you can help restore balance to your child's nervous system. After removing environmental stressors and addressing the physical components with chiropractic care, many parents notice significant improvements in their child's ADD and ADHD symptoms.
