While Chiropractors can not say that they are a “cure” for ADD and ADHD we can tell you that we have had some amazing success stories.
I can share with you many research articles that have shown amazing results with ADHD and Chiropractic…
Cervical Kyphosis is a Possible Link to Attention-deficit/hyperactivity Disorder
J Manipulative Physiol Ther 2004 (Oct); 27 (8): e14
A Multi–faceted Chiropractic Approach to Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder: A Case Report
ICA Internat Rev Chiro 1995 (Jan): 41–43
An Evaluation of Chiropractic Manipulation as a Treatment
of Hyperactivity in Children
J Manipulative Physiol Ther 1989; 12 (5) Oct: 353–363
However, to keep it simple lets explain how this works. Everyone is controlled by their nervous system. In all of us are two parts to our nervous system; Sympathetic and Parasympathetic. When we are in Sympathetic mode we are in “fight or flight” mode. This can cause us and/or are children to be very anxious, and have trouble concentrating.
We have special techniques to take children from Sympathetic mode to a Parasympathetic mode. I have literally astounded many parents as we took their child from running around the clinic, laid them down on the table and watched them fall asleep with the application of our special techniques.
On top of Chiropractic, we will also have to look at their nutrition. There are many nutritional aspects to ADHD and sometimes can be one of the easiest fixes possible.
I cannot promise that we can help, but what I can promise is our signature 80 to 100 step examination, surface Emg, and x-ray if needed. I can promise that at the end of our examination you will know two things…First, you will know exactly what is going on, and Second, you will know what you need to do next to start moving towards wellness. If we can help you we would love to but if we cannot then we will help you find where to start.
