ADHD and Back To School

September is a transformative time.  We reorganize our schedules and create structure for our lives as we enter the season of Fall. As part of my role as an educator in your lives, I have put together some timely information to assist in this process.  I hope you find the information useful.  

With growing concerns about the safety of both short and long term psychotropic medications alternative ways to approach children and adults with hyperactivity, impulsivity, attention deficit disorders is a hot topic.  I have heard more than once about the kids that don't seem to need their medication all summer and then once they get back to school they are unable to focus and being off medication becomes problematic for both the child's ability to learn and the classroom atmosphere. 

Chiropractic care has been shown to remove tension from the nervous system.  Allowing children and adults to focus, calm down, sit still, retain information, make better decisions and improve behavioral, social and emotional difficulties.

For the scientifically minded practice members, Network Spinal Analysis may positively affect the brain by creating plastic changes in the prefrontal cortex and other cortical and sub-cortical areas serving as neural substrate for cognitive process of attention. This is important because neural plasticity means the ability of the brain to change as a result of one's experience.

NSA gives your nervous system more strategies to handle stress and change.  Who doesn't need that? Make regular visits to Connected Spine part of your Fall Schedule and see how you thrive in and out of the classroom!
