Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) is one of the most common childhood neuropsychiatric disorders in the country. It is estimated that 11% of children in the United States have ADHD, and that statistic is rising every year. Western medicine treats the symptoms of this disease through behavioral therapy and medication. Although this approach can be helpful in managing the symptoms of the disease, many times the root causes of this syndrome are being overlooked.
Some of the fundamental causes of this disorder can involve:
- Neurodevelopmental Delays
- Sensory integration Deficits
- Immune system reactivity
- Low Neurotransmitter Production
- Nutrient Deficiencies
- Gut Dysbiosis
- Increased Sympathetic Activity
- Poor Parasympathetic Activity
SD Chiropractic Neurology identifies the contributing causes of this disorder and offers a drug-free approach to correct them through brain-based therapies and functional medicine. Specific connections in the brain have been shown to be weaker in those who have ADHD causing the signs and symptoms of ADHD. Each of our ADHD treatments are designed to increase the strength and efficiency of specific connections in the brain which may be underdeveloped and/or not working optimally. This personalized approach allows our doctors to achieve maximum results with our patients.
