|Chiropractic for Children and Mothers
We have experience in working with children who present with a great variety of concerns, including:
Although a child may have a diagnosis of Tourette's, ADHD or another syndrome, the treatment of the syndrome is not the focus of our care. Instead we work very hard to identify the area of the nervous system that is deficient and provide care in hopes of restoring it to proper function.
What occurs during the neurologic consultation?
What type of care will my child receive?
Patients with Attention Deficit Disorder, Hyperactivity, Autism and other similar disorders...
Chiropractic Neurologists are quickly gaining ground for their treatment of patients suffering from hyperactivity, attention deficit disorder, autism and other disorders as recent clinical findings suggest that problems in the central nervous system function could be a source of many of these conditions.
A recent article in the Journal of the American Chiropractic Association (JACA) reports on the growing specialty of chiropractic neurology and new research in the neurological services that points to chiropractic as a possible non-drug treatment for a host of baffling disorders.
Chiropractic Neurologists have successfully treated attention deficit disorders (ADD/ADHD) without drugs. Doctors isolate aspects of the brain that are not developing or functioning properly and determine the appropriate therapeutic approach.
"We use modalities to effect either a calming or an activation and increase of stimulation of a part of the brain that controls mood, attention, problem-solving qualities and thought processing. These children do wonderfully. They usually respond very quickly, especially in the absence of any brain damage. We are usually simply dealing with developmental patterns and the development of the brain."
Chiropractic Neurology is also addressing autism. "Many children may be autistic as a result of compromised cerebral and thalamic integration," explains Dr. Michael Hall. "A chiropractic neurologist may be able to provide additional clinical insight and clinical procedures to improve brain function through manipulation and non-manipulative procedures."
