ADHD Treatment in West Bloomfield, MI
Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) is a condition that affects both children and adults; at this point, about 1 in every 10 children is diagnosed with ADHD. ADHD is often characterized by an inability to focus, lack of motivation especially for mundane tasks, fidgeting, inability to sit still especially through classes or meetings, and poor impulse control. People with ADHD are often described to be “in the clouds” and easily distracted from tasks.
For those who experience ADHD, there is a high level of frustration. Some of this frustration comes from a lack of understanding about the causes of ADHD. There are no studies that nail down just one cause of this disorder, as it has been deemed to result from a mix of genetic and environmental factors. While people may be genetically predisposed to develop ADHD, environmental factors from in utero and the early childhood years seem to determine if it does develop.
The most often prescribed treatment for ADHD is medication, but with children, this can be a slippery slope. Children are still developing, and their bodies will not always metabolize their medications the same way, and tolerance and dependence on medication are developed. Many parents of children with ADHD, as well as adults with ADHD, would prefer to treat the symptoms naturally rather than a lifetime reliance on medication.
ADHD treatment is available through therapeutic experiences that do not involve potentially harmful medications. Michigan Chiropractic Specialists provide services to treat ADHD by addressing physiological issues that may contribute to ADHD, such as spinal misalignment and dietary concerns. A chiropractor can perform a simple spinal adjustment right in the office, which is safe for children and adolescents as well as adults. A spinal adjustment benefits the central nervous system, which has been shown to play a role in ADHD. A nutritional consultation can assist with identifying foods that may contribute to symptoms, planning a diet that will eliminate potentially harmful foods and nutritional counseling.
