You may know that chiropractic care can help with any musculoskeletal as well as internal health issues, but did you know that chiropractic care along with Applied Kinesiology can help children and adults that have been diagnosed with learning disabilities such as ADD and ADHD? Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder can be characterized by constant and excessive movement, aggression, unpredictability, impatience, a short attention span, poor coordination, poor sleep habits, and more. Most people are given stimulant medications such as Adderal or Ritalin which come along with many side effects and may suppress the children of their imagination, creativity, and enthusiasm. Thankfully, there is an alternative to these medications and it comes with chiropractic and AK. Neurologic disorganization, or "Switching", as we commonly call it, is something I check for with every patient at every visit. Switching is basically a confusion of the messages within our body and its nervous system. A good example is when I tell you to lay on your stomach and you lay on your back Or when you say right when you mean left, etc. Switching creates learning problems but can be treated successfully via the cranial-sacral system of the body along with releasing dural torque in the spine, oftentimes through chiropractic adjustments and AK work. Blood sugar handling stress is another factor with learning disabilities. The brain is very dependent on stable blood sugar to perform properly. I check for dietary sensitivities as well as the functioning of the glands of the body that help regulate blood sugar. With dietary changes and treatment of the blood sugar system, a more balanced blood sugar can be attained. Food and chemical sensitivities play a huge part in mood, behavior, and cognition and all dietary stressors should be found and eliminated. The good news is, with chiropractic and AK, this is all possible. For most of those who come in for treatment, the work that is done in-office combined with at-home lifestyle changes makes a world of difference! Children and adults alike are able to get off of their medications and live a happy, healthy life. Do you know anyone suffering from learning or behavioral problems who want a new, holistic approach? Try Chiropractic Applied Kinesiology.
