ADHD and Chiropractic

Parents ask me how pediatric Chiropractic care helps kids with ADHD/ADD – isn’t Chiropractic just for back pain?

mom and son building blocksChiropractic is about nerve system function. In regards to ADHD/ADD, the adjustments help get the person out of the “fight/flight” sympathetic part of their nerve system that they have been stuck in. These structural shifts of the spine were first created from a difficult birth: C-section, in-utero constraint, vacuum, forceps, or even when the doctors pull on the baby’s head to get them out of the birth canal.

The secondary conditions start presenting as difficult latching to the breast, colic, chronic ear, lung, and throat infections, and finally, behaviours that prevent them from succeeding in school: hyperactivity, impulsivity, distractibility.

Most kids are very intelligent. We just help them restore the balance to the “parasympathetics” where the brakes can be applied to the Ferrari brain! It’s awesome. It’s natural. It works!
