ADHD and Chiropractic Care: Breaux Bridge and Lafayette, Louisiana
Today 1 in 10 children are diagnosed with ADHD which makes it the most commonly diagnosed near behavioral disorder in children. The most common treatment for ADHD has been to give a child drugs such as Ritlan. The problem with using these drugs is that they have the same effects as cocaine or amphetamines. As more parents are finding out about the effects of the various medications used, they are learning that chiropractic care and holistic remedies can reduce the symptoms of ADHD, without the use of harmful medications and stressful treatments.
Helping ADHD and Nervous Disorders
As proper brain activity is directly related to correct alignment and function of the spine, when the spine is out of alignment, it can create interference in the signals going to the brain and contribute to mental conditions. Some doctors have described as if someone is playing very loud music in their heads all the time. The stress and tension that occurs in the nervous system can cause erratic behavior and melt downs. Chiropractic can help to correct the root of problem by removing misalignments, or “subluxations”, in the spine, thus relieving the symptoms of ADHD long-term and promoting brain development.
Because ADHD is a nervous system issue, we are well equipped in our office to treat this condition. We use a form of rehabilitation called Quantum Neurology® to pin point these weaknesses in the nervous system. This technique has helped many children who have ADHD to have a more normal and fulfilled life.
Diet also plays a big role in helping, or hindering, the symptoms of ADHD; we can help you to develop a plan to eliminate causes in the diet that may be contributing to ADHD symptoms. Most parents never think about their child’s nutrition as being a factor in their behavior but several studies have proved otherwise.
