Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADD/ADHD) is the most commonly reported childhood behavioral disorder. It is characterized by poor attention span, impulsive behaviors, and hyperactivity in some children.
Although high-cost medications may temporarily keep ADHD under control, they don't cure it. Eighty percent of patients have ADHD features in adolescence, and up to 65 percent maintain them in adulthood.
How Chiropractic Care Relates to ADHD
Recent research, correlating spinal misalignment's (subluxations) and the onset of ADHD, suggests proper correction of an individual's neck can alleviate ADHD symptoms. An accurate assessment of an individual's spine is necessary to determine whether there are spinal misalignment's that correlate to ADHD symptoms. If spinal misalignment's are found, specific adjustments are performed by hand to correct the misaligned vertebrae in the neck.
