A common condition sending children to the pediatrician is Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder (ADHD).

Chiropractic care does not cure ADHD, but since ADHD is a neurological disorder and chiropractic care reduces nervous system disturbance, many parents who seek for a natural, drug-free solution have found chiropractic very helpful.

Common Symptoms

  • Easily distracted
  • Always moving
  • Difficulty concentrating
  • Inability to control impulsive thoughts

Traditional Treatment

The most common treatment is the prescription of a Class 2 psychotrophic drug.
The most common treatment for ADHD is the prescription of a Class 2 psychotrophic drug.

The traditional treatment for ADHD is typically pharmaceutical.  Common ADHD prescribed drugs are registered as Schedule II (a drug classification) and include Ritalin, Concerta and Adderall.  Other common Schedule II drugs include cocaine, oxycodone, methamphetamine and methadone.  These drugs are uniformly classified because of their side effects and mind altering nature.  The personality changes and permanent negative changes in the brain cause many parents to look for an alternative to drug prescriptions.

Chiropractic: Pure and Natural

Instead of masking the symptoms of ADHD, we look for disturbances to the nervous system.  We often find problems caused by spinal distortions in the upper neck.  The link between the spine, brain stem dysfunction and ADHD is quite common.  A thorough chiropractic examination can reveal noticeable spinal distortions, which affect neurological function.  That is why we recommend a schedule of regular chiropractic adjustments to help reduce nervous system tension.
