Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)
We do not treat ADHD, however, because ADHD is believed to be a neurological disorder many parents have found chiropractic care to be a helpful alternative to drugs. Chiropractic provides an ADHD patients help by reducing nervous system disturbances.

Common Symptoms
The classic signs that parents and teachers notice:

  • Inattention, hyperactivity and being easily distracted
  • Difficulty concentrating for more than a few minutes
  • Problems sitting still
  • Inability to control impulsive thoughts, behaviors and words
  • Easily distracted by activities and noises
  • Constant fidgeting -Always moving—fingers, hands, arms, feet or legs

Lifestyle Modification
First, begin by making healthy nutritional and lifestyle changes. Consider the environment around your child and rule out environmental factors by reducing your child's exposure to substances that are increasingly common these days:

  • Remove food dyes, preservatives and additives from the diet
  • Focus on natural, organic foods grown without pesticides or herbicides
  • Determine if an allergy is involved such as dairy or gluten and eliminate
  • Eliminate all sugars and artificial sweeteners
  • Reduce the use of cleaning agents, detergents, fabric softeners and other chemicals

Traditional Medical Approach to Treatment
A popular approach to controlling a child with ADHD is to administer regular doses of Ritalin®, aka known as methylphenidate. Ritalin® is a schedule II psychotropic drug and produces similar effects as, amphetamines and cocaine. The side effects, including personality changes and permanent changes to the brain, frequently cause many parents to look for alternatives.

Chiropractic Care
Hyperactivity can be caused by a disturbance in the child’s nervous system. We often find problems caused by spinal distortions in the upper neck.  Distortions in the spine, brain stem dysfunction and ADHD is common. A thorough chiropractic examination can reveal noticeable spinal distortion, which frequently can be corrected. We use a schedule of safe chiropractic adjustments, which to resolve or reduce nervous system tension.
