Adaptive Chiro for Children with Sensory Needs

You’ve already worked through the mass of articles, advice, and paperwork that 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 adaptations that can be made for children with needs, especially affecting their sensory needs.

It is widely known that neurodevelopmental disorders affect the nervous system, as these pathways are interconnected. When the system is functioning, wellbeing is positively affected. For children, early intervention is crucial and must address the symptoms, such as speech delays or school-related issues. 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 physical needs. Sublixations, or spine misalignments, affect brain communication, behavior, and sensory processing. Chiropractic adjustments help the body heal and rest instead of react to discomfort. Additionally, treatment can reduce stress levels, improve immune and digestive function. This reduces triggers for hyperactivity and sensitivities.

Areas of focus include chronological age/neurological age balance, primitive reflexes, and overall nervous system function 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.
