Chiropractic Adjustment for ADHD | Pediatric Chiropractor in West Omaha, NE
Hi there. I’m Dr. Jeremiah Sample and with me today is my daughter sit still, your only job is to sit still. Okay, and we’re here today to talk to you about Attention Deficit Disorder, or attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, and things that could be causing this and what we could do about it.
Proper Nutrition is Important
For instance, this is just gonna keep happening, isn’t it? All right. So as chiropractors we are trained to detect subluxations in the spine, which caused nerve pressure, which causes an interruption between how the brain and the body interact, and cause you to move away from health. Now, other factors can be contributing to this as well, such as poor sleep patterns. Too much tech time, maybe much YouTube, or caffeinated beverages poor diet can also do that. Too much white sugar. This is what Yeah, I was gonna give you a real energy drink on camera. Are you crazy? Okay. By eliminating these things from the diet or decreasing the amount that children are exposed to them will allow their bodies more naturally focused on the nutrients that they need.
Cervical Subluxation can be a Contributing Factor
Now, as a chiropractor, what I’m going to do is check Evelyn for a subluxation. Okay, put your hands down for a subluxation in the cervical spine, which would be causing a blockage between the brain and the body or in the upper thoracic, which could also be caused by poor postural habits. I won’t see the inflammation here in the upper thoracic and in the cervical spine. So what I’m doing now is motion palpating. And you’re gonna do some static palpation to see if there’s tight and tense fibers there. And I do detect an upper cervical subluxation. So if you’ll just sit with your hands on your lap, like you’re holding two bowls of soup, wonderful. I will place his vertebrae back in his natural position allowing now the brain to communicate with the rest of the body. Now for the upper thoracic rotation, we’re going to bring you over the table here come this way everyone. Lay with your chin, their arms down, they can understand that when adjusting a child. Oftentimes the amount of pressure needed is about the same as clicking a pan or maybe just mapping a potato chip. I find it here in her upper thoracic was putting pressure on her lungs in her heart caused him not to function as properly as they should be. And this often causes attention problems because it makes the child very distracted.
So just relaxing the table. Perfect, okay. By restoring that natural motion, nervous system is going to work better. Evelyn’s going to work better, and her parents will be much happier. That feel good. Outstanding.
