Ottawa, ON (Sept 19, 2012) – Barrhaven Family Chiropractic & Wellness Centre now offers a holistic approach to help people manage the challenges associated with ADHD. Barrhaven Family Chiropractic is a certified “SHINE for Doctors: Special Help for Integrating Neurological Experience” practice that combines ADHD Expertise, Chiropractic alignment, Neurological assessment with Exercise and Nutrition counselling.

Those With ADHD Can Accomplished Extraordinary Successes

ADHD is typically characterized by impulsivity, inattentiveness, and hyperactivity- characteristics that make it hard for those with this trait to reach their highest potential. Dr. Hallowell considers ADHD to be a trait, not a disability. When managed effectively, those with ADHD have accomplished extraordinary successes, but if undiagnosed or untreated, ADHD can wreck lives.

Dr. Hallowell says that having ADHD is like having a Ferrari engine, with bicycle brakes. In keeping with this analogy, Dr. Kahlid Mankal, of Barrhaven Family Chiropractic says,

We teach children and adults with ADHD to strengthen their “brakes” while also giving their bodies and “engines” a tune-up. Medication is not the only answer”.

Holistic Approach to Treat ADHD

Recent studies indicate that the use of medication to help manage ADHD is on the rise, however, many people with ADHD prefer a holistic, alternative approach and are already familiar with Dr. Hallowell and his NY Times bestselling book, Delivered from Distraction.

Barrhaven Family Chiropractic combines Dr. Hallowell’s strength-based approach by first identifying the unique gifts inherent in everyone, and then tailoring their proven chiropractic techniques to help the person with ADHD achieve their full potential.
