ADHD/ADD and Chiropractic
Kids and adults under consistent chiropractic care experience results with ADHD and other developmental and mental disorders. Many mental and behavioral disorders are noted to be caused by an misaligned or subluxated spine causing an imbalanced nerve system. Researchers have found that the brain needs proper information from the body to give the proper commands back to the body. This can be thought as a continuous loop or a cycle. If there is any interference in this system hyperactivity, irritability, and irrational behavior may present itself in the child.
This type of spinal nerve irritation can produce symptoms identical to ADHD/ADD and many other types of disorders like Depression, Anxiety, Nervousness, High Blood Pressure, Etc…..
Many kids with these types of disorders have had some kind of trauma in their life. Birth trauma is one of the most common we see. At birth even a small tug while coming out of the birth canal can cause a subluxation or misalignment of the spine. Our kids will eventually learn to walk and ride a bike with their own trial an errors, often falling or hitting their heads. Thats why at Friends & Family Chiropractic in Marietta, GA we would love to get your kids spine checked to ensure the best development reducing problems later in life.
If you suspect they may have these problems and don’t like treating them with harmful medications lets schedule an appointment for a brighter future.
