Address ADD / ADHD Behavior with Chiropractic Care
When a child is diagnosed with ADHD, it is a stressful time for the child as well as the whole family. There are many different approaches that can be taken to help a child cope with ADHD symptoms. At Align, we believe that these children are able to function at 100% – they just need the right tools to support them. Through specific, strategic chiropractic adjustments, we focus on adjusting the nervous system in such a way so that a child is able to process information more clearly and easily.
Children with ADHD typically have a hard time of “filtering in” information and can easily become overwhelmed and over-stimulated. Our goal is to help reduce the amount of stressors a child has, so that daily tasks and daily activities can become easily performed. The percentage of children with an ADHD diagnoses continues to increase, from 7.8% in 2003 to 11% in 2011, with rates predicted to continue to increase at about 3-5% per year.
Currently, the main medical approach is medication. These medications are not tested for long term use and have been known to have alarming and dangerous side effects. If you or your child is looking for natural, alternative approaches to ADHD/ADD, please contact us today to get any questions answers and to receive an evaluation from our doctors.
ADD/ADHD are INPUT problems, not OUTPUT problems. All of the signs and symptoms are simply effects of the stress and subluxation on their system… As Pediatric Chiropractors, we find that stress and subluxation and remove it, restoring balance to the nervous system. In another way, we fix the input… and then the brain and the body normalize and balance the output.
