Chiropractic care is much more than just popping your spine a bit. It has serious benefits for all kinds of conditions, including ADD/ADHD. It may seem odd that a physical manipulation of your body can help with a mental condition, but subluxations can have a bigger impact than you might think.
A subluxation is essentially a problem with your spine curvature. They’re often mild, but they do affect how well your nerves work. This is especially apparent when it causes something like back pain. Your nerves actually do a lot for your mental processes as well. In fact, faulty nerve functioning can lead to symptoms like anxiety and an inability to focus just like ADD and ADHD do.
Since your nerves have such a big impact on your mental functioning, target manipulations of those nerves via subluxation treatment can be used to treat ADD and ADHD. Just because it sounds good in theory, however, doesn’t mean it will actually work. To verify its effectiveness, we have to turn to scientific studies. One study found that chiropractic care actually can be an effective way to manage ADD/ADHD conditions. Another study found that there were specific benefits regarding following directions.
