Chiropractic and ADD/ADHD

We are Driven to Reveal the TRUTH

Family playing playing and running on the beachWe are driven to reveal the TRUTH—the information that you will not find in the public media, which is why we focus on helping both children and adults unlock their human potential within their diagnosis of ADD/AHD.

Most Commonly Diagnosed Disorders of Childhood

We are not sure if you are aware of this, but ADD/ADHD is one of the most commonly diagnosed disorders of childhood. Did you realize that about 10% of kids between 4-17 years old have been diagnosed with this condition in the US alone? That is absolutely startling and what makes this even more severe is that almost all of these children end up on psychoactive medication!

According to a recent study, about 1 in 1,000, kids taking stimulants end up with medication-related psychiatric problems, such as hearing voices, hallucinations, becoming suspicious for no reason, or becoming manic. Even the non-stimulant medication, Strattera, carries a warning: children and teenagers who take it are more likely to have suicidal thoughts than children and teenagers with ADHD who do not take it!

ADD/ADHD Symptoms

Children and adults with ADD/ADHD often have difficulties with impulse control, attention span, restless movement, blurting out words or phrases, staying on task, reading comprehension, math word problems, understanding social skills, understanding the big picture (concepts), being able to focus on things that they are not interested in, poor posture and many other symptoms depending on the individuals genetic predisposition and environmental elements. These symptoms are most often due to a right brain functional weakness and particularly the right dorsal lateral prefrontal cortex (i.e. the right, front portion of the brain). Some of the functions of this part of the brain are motor planning, executive function and inhibition of the emotional centers of the brain. The right hemisphere of the brain is responsible for putting the brakes on thoughts and movement which is why these children have problems with impulse control and sitting still etc.

We use Different Brain-Based Therapies to Improve ADD/ADHD

As a chiropractor, we use different brain-based therapies to improve ADD/ADHD signs and symptoms. We access the areas of the brain that need stimulation by different brain-based modalities. We also teach parents and adults what ADD/ADHD really is and in many cases how to eliminate it. ADD/ADHD is not considered a disease by science. There is no bug or germ that causes it. Some say it might be genetic, others show that genes can be turned on or turned off. There are several things which all have the same or very similar symptoms as ADD/ADHD. Sleep deprivation, mineral imbalance, food hypersensitivities, central nervous system irritation and others to name a few. It would be a crime to have someone on powerful drugs for the rest of their lives if the problem is only a mineral deficiency or some other very correctable disorder. This is why we get the excellent results we get. We are usually able to get to the root of the problem and eliminate it.
