05 Oct Chiropractic Care Aligns Brain and Body to Treat ADHD
Our brains use the nervous system to control how well we manage our impulses, pay attention, and perform all the other tasks of our daily lives. When someone’s nervous system isn’t working at its best capacity to coordinate the brain’s commands with the body’s performance, every aspect of their life may suffer.
One of the most common brain problems in children is Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). Parents of children with ADHD expend a lot of time and anxiety trying to help their child. But many ADHD treatments fail because they don’t treat the underlying causes of the disorder. In contrast, chiropractic care, because it works naturally to heal that brain-body connection, delivers safe, effective treatment for ADHD that we provide at Eastern Oklahoma Chiropractic.
The Ways ADHD Symptoms Affect the Lives of Children and Adults
ADHD can impair a child’s life, at a time when they must be able to absorb all the social, emotional, and academic lessons of each crucial stage of their development to reach their full potential. The disorder is very common, affecting around 10 percent of American children, according to the CDC. Boys are about twice as likely as girls to have it. Often, signs in girls are more subtle, showing up as trouble focusing rather than hyperactive behavior.
Children with ADHD may have difficulty focusing on their schoolwork, controlling their energy level and impulsivity, and retaining information. The sooner children get help for their ADHD, the more likely they are to avoid falling behind in their schoolwork and social development.
Adults suffer from ADHD, too. In some children, symptoms may become milder with age and treatment, but many suffer the effects of ADHD throughout their adult lives.
How Do Chiropractic Adjustments Help With ADHD?
Evidence continues to mount in recent years that chiropractic adjustments in children and adults can improve brain function and coordination with the body. Researchers found in a 2010 study that subjects who received chiropractic treatments were calmer and better able to focus on tasks.
When areas of the spine are misaligned, chiropractic adjustments help to realign them properly, improving the overall health of the body. This general improvement stimulates the brain, reducing the distraction that previously caused agitation and trouble focusing. People who’ve been treated with chiropractic therapies have more success at changing their behaviors because their nervous system is balanced.
Our individualized treatment plan, for you or for your child, combines gentle chiropractic adjustments with other therapies as needed. When your brain and nervous system are working at their optimum levels, your body is empowered to heal, improving mental abilities and physical health.
Every parent wants their child’s ADHD symptoms to improve in the most non-invasive way. Early intervention with chiropractic adjustments can change the course of your child’s life, and improve the lives of adults with the condition as well.
