Subluxations (abnormalities in the spinal curvature) can inhibit normal nerve functioning. Many people seeking chiropractic care think of this type of nerve functioning on a purely physical level, e.g. back pain or headaches, but nerve functioning also governs mental processes. When we feel excess anxiety, an inability to focus, restlessness or other symptoms associated with ADD/ADHD conditions, these are also the results of nervous system functioning.
With targeted adjustments, research has shown that ADD and ADHD can be managed completely without drugs to help restore normal functioning in children. An additional case study showed improvement in the subject’s ability to follow directions.
Positive effects are not isolated to children, either, since people of all age can be affected by diminished nervous system performance as a result of subluxations.
