A.D.H.D. and Chiropractic Care
Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder, or ADHD, has been increasing worldwide. Symptoms of ADHD include but are not limited to: inattention, hyperactivity, difficulty concentrating and sitting still, inability to control impulsive thoughts and behaviors, easily being distracted by noises and activities and constant movement of the fingers, hands, arms, feet or legs.
For unknown reasons, ADHD seems to affect boys more than girls and finding an effective treatment, or cure, can be quite difficult. Many parents and adults are turning to chiropractors for treatment because of their experience in treating nervous system disorders. Lifestyle changes are recommended prior to using any form of prescribed medicinal drugs as Ritalin, which is a class-II psychotropic drug. Lifestyle changes can be very effective especially in regards to diet. This includes removing food dyes, pesticides, preservatives, all sugars and sweeteners from the diet, as well as reducing the use of cleaning agents, fabric softeners and other chemicals around the house.
Chiropractors do not treat ADHD; instead they look to identify underlying causes in a one’s nervous system that may cause the effects of the ADHD. In fact, there is a link between the spine, brain stem dysfunction and ADHD. A thorough chiropractic examination can identify and reveal noticeable spinal distortions. For this reason, we often recommend a schedule of safe and natural chiropractic adjustments to help reduce the accompanying nervous system tension which can help drastically with ADHD symptoms.
Since seeing Dr. Rosenfeld, I have had progressive improvement
"I first came into the office in January 2008. I had a chronic issue with burning tightness in the right hip, extending to the middle back. It began about 10 years ago. I believe it was progressively getting worse but started with having a more sedentary job. It was not debilitating, but was annoying most of the time. I had been to my family doctor, an orthopedist, and another chiropractor. With the other chiropractor I had moderate results. The MDs had little to offer and no idea how to help. I found this office via a web search on the internet. Since seeing Dr. Rosenfeld, I have had progressive improvement, but the supplemental therapies have been both helpful and entertaining."
