Learning Problems
 

The Natural Solution

For Hyperactivity, Attention Deficit Disorder, & Learning Disabilities

A growing problem (or awareness) of learning problems, hyperactivity and behavioral difficulty is becoming obvious to more and more children and adults who are struggling with these issues and wondering where to turn for effective answers.

 

Typical Symptoms can include:

  • Short attention span
  • Poor reading, writing & math skills
  • Difficulty following instructions
  • Failure to socialize well & aggressiveness
  • Dyslexia
  • Poor concentration & memory
  • Difficulty making decisions
  • Feelings of constant tension
  • Poor physical coordination
  • Nervous tics
  • Feelings of inferiority
  • "Foggy" head

With so many diverse symptoms it is likely that there is more than one cause of the problem.

 

Are drugs the solution?

While some children and adults appear to respond well to medication such as Ritalin, Cylent or Dexedrine, the fact is that over-medicating and misdiagnosis is increasing at an alarming rate in this area.

Some children become more "manageable" but many studies show no improvement in school studies as well as an increase in problems with delinquency and social happiness later on in life.

In addition, side effects from any long-term use of medication raise serious questions for overall health.

 

A Key Problem- A Dis-Organized Nervous System

Often in these cases, it is not an under medicated or willfully unruly chilled, but a brain and nervous system that has mis-fired. As in all chronic health problems the nervous system has to be considered a source because it is the main controller, cpu, mother board, how ever you want to say it-of function in the body. Sometimes a genetic problem, difficult birth, early trauma to the body or head can cause neurological and postural compromise, even without obvious body symptoms that lead to learning and behavioral problems.

 

An Effective, Natural Solution Is Available

Neural Organization Technique (N.O.T), a specialty within Chiropractic, is ideally suited to give the best answer to these perplexing problems.

By utilizing specific spinal adjustments, cranial reflex points, acupressure points and Applied Kinesiology (manual muscle testing), a high level of improvement can be reached.

Analysis and treatment is directed at the causes of these problems, which can be any combination of the following:

  • Neural Disorganization- this includes loss of spinal and eye muscle coordination as well as the visual, auditory and speech processing circuits of the brain.
  • Allergies- many of these problems are caused by allergic reactions from foods, chemicals and dyes.
  • Blood Sugar Imbalance- mood swings and hyperactivity can be directly related to improper Endocrine (glands) System functions.
  • Nutritional Imbalance- deficiency here can cause many hidden biological and neurological malfunctions. General diet must also be evaluated.

Each of these possible causes has a specific treatment protocol.

All treatment is designed to restore the body's natural abilities: physically, emotionally and cognitively.

 

What to Expect

Following a complete history and examination, if you or your child is a good candidate for care, a treatment recommendation and prognosis will be discussed. Treatments are safe and very gentle. Improvements can be seen surprisingly fast.

The possibility of seeing new abilities, calmness and confidence for children and (adults by the way) does exist. Please call to find out if we can help.
