ADHD and Chiropractic

The standard medical approach uses psychotropic medications, the same medications associated with serious side effects. Surely there must be a better way… chiropractic may be it.  One study looked at chiropractic treatment of boys 9-13 with diagnosed ADHD.  Spinal manipulation with nutritional supplementation was reported to improve hyperactivity, inattentiveness, impulsivity, behavioral, social and emotional difficulties. While this treatment did include other variables (diet), it does suggest perhaps ADHD may respond to alternative approaches rather than the standard reliance on pharmaceuticals alone.
