When Children’s moods are not normal
Does your child have a neurological disorder? Typical symptoms include ADHD/ADD, Autism, Sensory Processing Disorders, Tourette’s, and Tics, among others, often described as a group of common neurological disorders caused by an abnormality in how the brain functions. Chiropractic Functional Neurology provides therapies targeting the brain and nervous systems causing adolescent behavior disorders.
Children with developmental delays, cognitive issues and deficits have improper communication between the right and left sides of the brain. This miscommunication is called “functional disconnection,” which is the root cause of learning, behavioral disorders and social problems. Balancing the right and left hemispheres of the brain is what Chiropractic neurologists strive to do with the varied techniques with which they treat. What is unique about chiropractic neurology is that patients participate in their own recovery process by doing special carry-over activities at home to keep the brain stimulated and activated outside of the rehabilitation.
Chiropractic care for children is noninvasive and drug-free and appeals to parents wary of potential side effects and the dangers of medication overuse. Still, a certain level of risk exists with any form of health care, so it is fair to ask: Is Chiropractic care safe for children? According to “The Safety and Effectiveness of Pediatric Chiropractic: A Survey of Chiropractors and Parents in a Practice-Based Research Network,” the answer is yes when delivered by a properly trained chiropractor.
Dr. Aaron Bardwell and Dr. Brian Emrys of Beyond Health and Wellness has the training and experience in Pediatric Functional Neurology. They can assist you in your child’s assessment and treatment therapies. Even if your child does not have a particular condition, visiting a skilled chiropractor is part of a healthy lifestyle that promotes normal development and well-being of children.
