Chronic Pain Management
Chiropractic. It’s about restoring function and total health to your nervous system which coordinates every bodily function. With regard to ADHD, people of all ages, and from differing professions and backgrounds will experience amazing improvements with their health and wellness as they practice consistent chiropractic care.
What is ADHD?
ADHD is a neurological disorder or a disorder of the nervous system that creates one or all three of 'inattention', 'hyperactivity' and 'impulsivity'. Research has shown that people who have ADHD do not have any less intelligence than anyone else, of course, but their brains function a bit differently. Treatment for ADHD is available in a number of ways. Medical treatment includes stimulating drugs that tend to turn down the level of activity. Although they work in many cases, they are over-prescribed and tend to be the first response to the diagnosis of ADHD. Diet is another form of treatment and has shown some progress and results.
Our Chiropractic approach to ADHD treatment
Chiropractors do not diagnose or treat ADHD and hyperactivity, but rather, they treat the symptoms. This doctor is not a proponent of medication except as a last resort if everything else has failed. Through subluxation adjustment treatment, the natural ability for the body to heal has been shown to reduce the severity of many maladies in the body including attention deficit disorders. You have often heard that the 'body heals itself'. That is true but our focus is encouraging that process with the elimination of subluxations and freedom of the life providing nerves allowing them to to do their life work.
With the use of drugs, many children suffer through stomach aches, nervousness, insomnia loss of appetite and accelerated heart beats. The constant discomfort is a sign that other means need to be looked at chiropractic care has shown that it is a natural and healthy approach to helping children and adults deal with their attention deficit disorder. Since we know chiropractic helps kids deal with symptoms, and maybe even the eventual elimination of some or most of them, it stands to reason that all children can benefit from chiropractic care. This is a particularly important area for me as a Doctor of Chiropractic and I encourage you to contact me for more discussion and what you can expect from our care.
