ADHD In Fort Collins

adhd

A condition that is affecting an increasing number of children and their families in the Fort Collins area is Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). This condition generally begins during childhood, but can continue to impact individuals into their adult years. People suffering from ADHD find it difficult to control their impulses or pay attention, which can disrupt daily life. Since ADHD is a complex issue, it can be difficult to diagnose, and therefore, hard to prescribe treatment. At Advanced Healthcare, our mission is to help children and their parents combat the negative symptoms of ADHD with gentle and effective chiropractic spine alignment treatments in Fort Collins.


Does Your Child Have ADHD?

In today’s world, children are under greater environmental and social stressors than ever before. These factors are leading parents, teachers, and caregivers to see an increase in behaviors that are difficult to manage, such as emotional outbursts and hyperactivity. If you have noticed your child exhibiting any of the following symptoms for 6 months or more, he/she may have ADHD.

Common Signs of ADHD:

    • Impulsive acts accompanied by an inability to wait their turn, allow others to speak, or think before acting out
    • Inability to sit still, concentrate, or remain quiet for long periods of time
    • Fidgeting with their hands or feet
    • Easily distracted by other activities and noises instead of the task at hand
    • Disorganized, frequently loses things, and has trouble completing assigned tasks
    • Tendency to talk more than other children or adults around them

     

What are the Treatment Options for ADHD?

The exact cause of ADHD varies from person to person, but it is generally believed to stem from an imbalance in the functions of the nervous system. Treatments for ADHD aim to correct these imbalances and restore the nervous system to a normal, healthy state.

Conventional Treatments

The conventional approach to treating the symptoms of ADHD is through the use of powerful psychotropic drugs, such as Ritalin and Adderall. While these drugs may reduce the severity of symptoms, they often cause terrible side effects and serious, long-term impacts on a child’s health. These side effects can include aggression, high blood pressure, and rapid heartbeat. Parents often have a difficult time deciding to proceed with this treatment option given its risks, but often times, this is the only option presented.

Alternative Treatments

Fortunately, Advanced Healthcare in Fort Collins offers chiropractic treatment options and spinal alignments for ADHD which are non-invasive and gentle on children. Often, food allergies can cause disruptions to the nervous system, so removing common allergens, such as gluten, can help relieve the symptoms of ADHD. Misalignments of the spine also play a key role in nervous system health, so spinal adjustments from our qualified chiropractors in Fort Collins can also help your child who is suffering from ADHD.
