Adaptive Chiro for Children with Sensory Needs

You’ve already worked through the mass of articles, advice, and paperwork that inevitably came along with your child’s diagnosis with ADHD, ASD, LD, or the like.

While that alone has been overwhelming, the choice for treatment may seem just as daunting. Have you considered chiropractic therapy? You may be surprised at the simple adaptations that can be made for children with particular needs, especially ones affecting their sensory perceptions.

It is widely known that neurodevelopmental disorders affect the body’s entire nervous system, as these pathways are interconnected. When the whole system is functioning optimally, overall wellbeing is positively affected. For children, particularly those with developmental delays, early intervention is crucial and must address more than just the symptoms, such as speech delays or school-related issues. Not only can chiropractic care help address the core areas of brain-body functionality, it can also begin much earlier than the school years.

Chiropractic care for children includes an assessment of overall health and development, noting any delays or areas of challenge. Each child is different, and their treatment is personalized to meet their specific physical needs. Sublixations, or spine misalignments, can affect brain communication and even behavior and sensory processing. Chiropractic adjustments in these cases help the body to heal and rest instead of react to discomfort. Additionally, treatment can reduce stress levels and improve immune and digestive function, which can reduce triggers for hyperactivity and other sensitivities.

Some major areas of focus and adaptation include chronological age/neurological age balance, primitive reflexes such as grasping or walking, and overall nervous system function in order to get the most “bang for your buck” from additional support therapies. In sum, it is never too soon for chiropractic intervention, particularly for children with neurosensory disorders. Give us a call to discuss the adaptations we can make so your child has the best chance at on-track developmental success that you can possibly give them.
