ADHD Symptoms

Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) is a condition that is typically noticed in children and can extend into adulthood. Some symptoms of ADHD are impulsive behavior, difficulty concentrating, inattention, and hyperactivity. ADHD is a common disorder that effects three to five percent of children in the United States, which equates to roughly two million children. Studies have shown that ADHD can be caused by an overactive nervous system that is combined with a decrease in the brain's inability to differentiate sights, sounds, thoughts, and emotions from tasks that need to be completed.

ADHD Treatment in Ponderay

Chiropractic Care for ADHD

Although chiropractic care cannot treat ADHD, it helps reduce the stress on the child's nervous system. At By Design Chiropractic in Ponderay, our chiropractic care can help by removing spinal subluxations that irritate the nervous system, suggest dietary changes, and recommend appropriate lifestyle changes at home to reduce susceptibility to toxic chemicals. Additionally, our chiropractic office in Ponderay can test for allergies that may be negatively affecting the immune system as well.

The most common treatment for ADHD is Ritalin, which is known to be a stimulant drug that can have the opposite effect on children with ADHD. For children that are overly hyper, Ritalin calms them down and helps them function normally. The issue with Ritalin is that it only masks the symptoms of ADHD, and it can have detrimental effects on the brain, as some children and adults may abuse this drug.
