Can Chiropractic Solutions Treat the Symptoms of ADHD?

How is ADHD Affected by the Body?

A major concern from ADHD patients and their families are the amount of harmful medications and stressful treatments associated with ADHD.

Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder is a medical condition affecting behavioral reactions and the mental state of patients. Proper brain activity is directly related to the 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, thus contributing to mental disorders.

What Can Chiropractic Adjustments Do to Treat the Symptoms of ADHD?

Chiropractic looks to alleviate the symptoms of ADHD by adjusting the body to remove theses misalignments that could be causing mental disruptions. By correcting the spinal function, the body is free to transmit information more clearly to the brain. This can result in the symptoms of ADHD being reduced and ultimately allow the patient to begin to take more control over their disorder.

What Other Treatment Options Are Available to People Suffering with ADHD?

Diet also plays a part in your overall health and wellness. Orr Chiropractic Center in Central Ohio works with you and your family to make recommendations for creating a dietary plan that will eliminate other causes, such as deficiencies and toxicity that might be contributing to the ADHD symptoms. Our goal is to promote brain development naturally and relieve the symptoms of ADHD in a healthy way.

In combination with diet, we want to encourage those suffering with ADHD to have a proper nutrient balance. We are able to perform a variety of tests to see if there are key minerals that should be in your system that you are lacking or if there are larger quantities of unnecessary toxins in your body. From there we can offer supplements to increase needed nutrients or we can treat you to an Ion Cleanse Footbath to draw out excess heavy metals and toxins.

Even more than just on a dietary level, we also have accessible equipment such as the PowerVibe Whole Body Vibration Therapy where we can have the patient work with a member of our team to do exercises or stretches that will get the body moving while alleviating tension in your muscles and joints. We also offer some therapeutic massage treatments or AquaMED therapy sessions to relax your body and calm your mind to help address the very active cases of ADHD.

No matter what side-effects you may be experiencing as a result of your ADHD, we are here to try and find a solution that will fit your lifestyle and needs. To learn more about how Orr Chiropractic can help relieve ADHD symptoms and other ailments with diet and therapy assistance contact us today!
