St. Paul Chiropractic & Natural Health Center provides safe, effective and comprehensive chiropractic care, and our staff is trained to provide natural treatment for Attention Deficit and Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). Just as nutrition has a direct impact on mood and physical health, so to does the presence of chiropractic care on your overall health. If your nutrition is lacking, you are more likely to feel lethargic, to gain weight, and become depressed. If your nutrition is good, you are more likely to respond in healthier ways to life’s stresses, to be more resilient, and to live a longer and more fulfilling life. Chiropractic care operates in much the same way, and by relieving the stress in a child’s life, the symptoms of ADHD can also be reduced.
Our staff is trained to recognize the subtle and important differences between and among their clients. If your child has ADHD, we understand that the way ADHD manifests can be substantially different from one person to another. We account for those differences when creating a chiropractic plan for your child. But there are some general principles about both children and chiropractic care that can help you understand its benefits.
Traditional Chiropractic Care in St. Paul, MN
Providing treatments such as spinal adjustment and massage therapy relieve stress by improving the body’s alignment and balance. A reduction of stress is, by nature, calming. A child who feels calmer as a result of chiropractic care is more likely to exhibit less severe symptoms of ADHD.
Importance of Nutrition and Exercise
If we ascertain that there are aspects of your child’s diet that can be improved, we will make recommendations to achieve that improvement. Though not all children need to improve their diets, those who do experience the positive effects of improved nutrition relatively quickly. When combined with periodic chiropractic care, the impact on symptoms of ADHD can be significant. Better nutrition tends to create positive energy, and when that energy is channeled into healthy exercise, the combined effects begin to grow.
Chiropractic Medicine and ADHD
It is important to emphasize that our work with your child is personalized. We work hard to identify the specific factors that make your child and your child’s circumstances unique. Only when we have a good understanding of your child’s dynamics do we make our recommendations for how to optimize the impact of chiropractic care on your child’s ADHD.
