ADHD stands for Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder. Children diagnosed with ADHD commonly have difficulties paying attention, retaining information, and are hyperactive and impulsive. These behaviors can lead to difficult and disruptive behavior, especially in school. ADHD can lead to poor grades, disciplinary actions by teachers and administrators, and social issues between peers.
Some symptoms of ADHD can include, but are not limited to, not paying close attention to details, difficulty focusing, forgetfulness, and difficulty finishing projects. This can lead to poor performance in school, sports, and other extracurricular activities. ADHD behavior can also appear as children squirming in their seat, being excessively fidgety, being overactive, and talking when they need to be quiet. ADHD behavior can lead to frequent interruption of others, talking over teachers and classmates, and blurting out answers without raising their hands.
ADHD has become an increasingly high profile and controversial issue in modern schooling. Many behavioral issues in children have been blamed on the disorder, and it is diagnosed at an alarming rate. 5 million children were given an ADHD diagnosis in 2010. When compared to the 1988 figure of just 500,000 diagnoses, the increase is certainly unsettling.
One of the main ways ADHD is currently treated is by prescription drugs like Adderall, Ritalin, and other stimulants. These drugs do not provide true healing relief from the causes of ADHD, but rather mask the symptoms. While these drugs do seem to help children comply with classroom behavioral standards, they also have serious negative consequences including chronic headaches, nervousness, insomnia, slow growth, nausea, dizziness, anorexia, abdominal pain, seizures, heart palpitations and addiction. For growing children, these side effects can cause permanent damage to mental and physical development. As children grow up to be adults, they can struggle to cope without the drugs they have been prescribed.
At Clear Connections Chiropractic we go about ADHD relief differently. We have found that through spine and nervous system adjustment, we can treat some causes of ADHD and provide relief, rather than just masking symptoms with drugs. Our adjustments relieve spinal pressure which leads to better transmission of electrical impulses to and from the brain. This can lead to ADHD relief because children have a better posture and more direct nervous system pathway so they can more easily focus.
