Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder affects more than 10% of children and often continues into adulthood. Studies have shown that ADHD can stem from a non-adaptive nervous system. These misfires between the brain and body can cause many challenges, including behavior, focus, emotional turmoil, forgetfulness, and lack of sleep. Many patients manage their condition with medication, although current studies are investigating how the adaptability of the autonomic nervous system can better help those who struggle with ADHD.
Misalignment in the spine can cause further dysfunction and neurological disconnection. Neurologically based chiropractic care helps to restore proper function by remedying subluxation, which is the interference of the nervous system due to spinal misalignment. A better functioning nervous system means better overall health, and without subluxation, our bodies can function the way God intended!
“I thought it would help some, but I never imagined it would help as much as it has!”
For most of my life, I’ve suffered with ADHD. I’ve taken many different types of medication, but nothing was helping me. My wife and I met Dr. Micheal at a health fair and he spoke with us about how with Neurologically Based Chiropractic care, our bodies would start to function better. After a few months of adjustments with Dr. Micheal, I was able to go off the Ritalin and Adderall I was on, and I’m doing great now! Through time and repetition, Neurologically-Based Chiropractic adjustments have helped me sleep better, plus, my low back pain and asthma are gone as well. We love coming to the office, the staff are very professional and knowledgeable. I definitely recommend Dr. Micheal, he’s helped me and my family. -Josh
“Anyone with ADD or ADHD who wants to find an alternative to drugs and chemicals should give this kind of chiropractic care a try!”
I have always had trouble focusing and staying on task, along with trouble sitting still, and general procrastination. When I was a kid, I took Ritalin and/or Adderall. This helped, but I did not like the way the medicine made me feel.
I was a bit hesitant when I heard chiropractic care could help with ADD/ADHD, but knew I didn’t want to take medicine again, so I gave it a try. Anyone with ADD or ADHD who wants to find an alternative to drugs and chemicals should give this kind of chiropractic care a try! I can see improvement to my ability to focus more and more after each visit.
My back pain was gone within a month; my neck pain was gone within about a month and a half, and my ADHD was noticeable getting better within two visits! After five visits, my coworkers could notice the change in my behavior as well.
The office is beautiful and inviting, along with the whole Integral Chiropractic Team!
Dr. Micheal breaks everything down in a way that is easy for everyone to understand, which made me feel more comfortable. I recommend chiropractic care, because taking care of yourself before something becomes a problem is always beneficial.
