Poor concentration and behavioral issues are often due to the inability of the child's brain to communicate properly with his/her body (because an Atlas/Upper Cervical misalignment)

ADD / ADHD

We do not “treat” Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder. However, ADHD appears as a neurological disorder and since Upper Cervical Chiropractic care helps reduce nervous system disturbances; many parents who want a natural, non-drug solution for their child have found Chiropractic care helpful, even miraculous.

Common Symptoms

The classic signs that parents and teachers notice:

  • Inattention, hyperactivity and being easily distracted
  • Difficulty concentrating and sitting still
  • Inability to control impulsive thoughts and behaviors
  • Easily distracted by noises and activities
  • Always moving—fingers, hands, arms, feet or legs

Traditional Treatment

The most common treatment is prescribing the child with a Class 2 Controlled psychotropic drug such as Adderall or Ritalin.  Class 2 Controlled Substances are incredibly dangerous drugs and included drugs such as Methadone and Morphine.

Chiropractic: Pure and Natural

Hyperactivity is not the result of a Ritalin shortage.  Instead, we look for disturbances to the child’s nervous system. We almost always see problems caused by the spinal distortions in the upper neck. In fact, this link between the spine, brain stem dysfunction and ADHD is common. A thorough Chiropractic examination can reveal noticeable spinal distortion, even a reversal of the normal neck curve. With a schedule of safe, gentle and natural NUCCA Chiropractic adjustments, these often resolve, reducing and nervous system tension.

Lifestyle Changes

Begin by making nutritional and lifestyle changes. Rule out environmental factors by reducing your child’s exposure to substances that are increasingly common these days:

  • Remove food dyes, preservatives and additives from the diet.
  • Focus on natural, organic foods grown without pesticides or herbicides.
  • Determine if an allergy involved such as dairy or gluten and eliminate.
  • Eliminate all sugars and artificial sweeteners.
  • Reduce the use of cleaning agents, detergents, fabric softeners and other chemicals.

These are wise choices whether your child has the symptoms associated with ADHD or not!
