90% of the stimulation and nutrition to the brain is generated by the movement of the spine.” – Roger Sperry (Nobel-prize winning scientist)
Research shows children with learning, attention, and processing disorders experience a common brain and nervous system problem, which always contains a link that typically traces back to the spine. Leaving the spine and nervous system unaddressed omits one of the biggest opportunities to help children fully recover and avoid life-long chemical dependency. Chiropractic plays a significant role in uniquely helping children reach their health potential by maximizing the spinal movement that provides the brain with priceless nutrition.
Attention problems in children trace back to many different causes but a lack of attention-deficit drugs in the body is not one of those reasons. Over 10 million children suffer with attention and learning problems significant enough that medical doctors, teachers, and family members believe that dangerous drugs provide the only solution to calming the child’s brain. Although the pharmaceuticals deliver a change in a child’s behavior, those drugs do not address the cause. Many experts, researchers, doctors, teachers, and parents now understand that the cause of these behavioral issues has more than one culprit.
Multifactorial causes create learning and behavioral issues. One solitary issue does not create a challenge dramatic enough to warrant a negative behavioral or learning diagnosis. ADHD, sensory processing disorder, ADD, and autism are all examples of disorders that create attention and learning struggles in both children and adults. Doctors will prescribe unique and dangerous drugs for each of these conditions, but each condition shares a common factor in their source. Every one of these disorders traces back to the brain.
Chiropractic uniquely helps children with ADHD, autism, and sensory processing disorder by improving the function of the brain and central nervous system. Every Chiropractic adjustment causes the central computer of the body to reset. Ground-breaking research published in 2014 proved a direct link between the influence of the parasympathetic nervous system and radical improvements of children with ADHD. Chiropractic increases the influence of the parasympathetic nervous system with every adjustment resulting in improvements in attention span, processing, learning, and behavior. Every child deserves the opportunity to experience improved central nervous system function through better spinal and posture health.
Every human body possesses the capability to heal. Interference with the brain and nervous system dramatically reduces health potential in both children and adults. The Journal of Neurologic Health states that health is the ability for the nervous system to send and receive nerve signals. Chiropractors optimize nervous system function and experience unique results for children with attention, learning, and processing disorders. Education plays a significant role in communicating options with parents and the community. An option exists for children and families who want better health outside of the cycle of harmful drugs that address symptoms but do not heal a child’s body. Neurological based Chiropractic care helps children receive the scientifically proven results that come from a healthy and fully functional nervous system.
