It is estimated that as many as 5 million children in the United States alone are afflicted with attention deficit disorders in varying degrees. Symptoms often cluster with hyperactivity to include lack of concentration, short attention span, impulsivity, fidgetiness, low frustration tolerance, difficulty with compliance, and poor social interaction.
Traditional methods of medical interventional are aimed at turning down the child's level of activity through the use of drugs. Years ago it was discovered that children react to stimulating drugs, such as Ritalin and amphetamines, in an opposite manner from adults.
Unfortunately, this response is not without drawbacks. Some children become very drug dependent and experience episodes of anxiety if dosage is changed or terminated.
Dr. Ben Feingold, M.D., a renowned pediatrician and allergist, recommends cessation of drug treatment of food synthetics as a healthier alternative.
Doctors of Chiropractic have reported refracted care.
If children with serious attention deficit disorders can benefit from chiropractic care--with improved attention span, lower activity level, and general well-being--it's reasonable to assume that even the average child would benefit, with improved health and well-being. By having subluxations corrected throughout childhood, your child will have a better opportunity to be as healthy as possible.
The chiropractic approach to health care is natural. It does not try to stimulated or inhibit normal body function. Instead, the chiropractor addresses the important relationship between the nervous system and disease.
