Does Your Child Have ADHD?

adhd

Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) has a profound effect on the lives of an increasing number of children and their families in Mason. This chronic condition begins in childhood and often continues to impact a person throughout their adult years. The persistent inability of a person suffering from ADHD to pay attention and control their impulses can be incredibly distressing and disruptive.

Due to the complexity of this issue it is not always easy for medical professionals to make a diagnosis, and it can be a challenge for parents and loved ones to find a treatment option that they feel confident about. This article covers the most common symptoms of ADHD, and the available treatment options. It is aimed at helping parents and all those concerned make informed and effective choices.


ADHD in Mason

Children today are under far more stress and pressure from social and environmental factors than they were even a few years ago. As a result, parents, teachers and caregivers are seeing an increase in behaviors that are difficult to manage, such as hyperactivity and emotional outbursts. If your child is displaying a number of the symptoms listed below, and has been for at least 6 months, then they may be suffering from ADHD.

Common Signs of ADHD:

  • An inability to concentrate or stay in one place for long periods of time
  • Acting impulsively with an inability to wait their turn, allow others to speak, or to think before acting out
  • An inability to sit for long periods of time
  • Fidgeting with their hands or feet
  • An inability to remain quiet for long periods of time
  • Preoccupied with other activities and noises instead of the task at hand
  • Tendency to talk more than others around them
  • Commonly losing things and an inability to complete assigned tasks
  • Disorganized

What are the Options for Treating ADHD?

Although the exact cause of ADHD may vary in individuals, it is commonly understood that the symptoms are caused by an imbalance in nervous symptom functions. Effective treatments aim to correct imbalances and restore the nervous system to a healthy state. Let's go over some of the available options for treatment.


Conventional Treatments

The medical system has traditionally turned to medication to deal with ADHD. The conventional approach of using powerful psychotropic drugs such as Ritalin and Adderall works to manage some of the symptoms, but there are often terrible side effects and long term health impacts of using these drugs. Irregular and rapid heartbeat, high blood pressure and increased aggression can all result from the use of these treatments. It is very difficult for parents to decide whether to assume the risks of giving their child these drugs, especially when they are presented as the only option.


Alternative Treatments

Fortunately, there are alternative treatments that can help to restore the nervous system to a more functional state. Nutritional Science has come a long way in the last decade, and many people are finding that an increase in nutrient rich natural foods, and the removal of common allergens, such as gluten, brings relief to children suffering from ADHD.

Misalignments in the spine are another major factor in nervous system health. A professional Chiropractor will perform a thorough evaluation in order to find vertebrae that may be out of place. This is a common issue causing a disruption in nervous system activity and it can be treated with low force, non-invasive and carefully applied adjustments. A pediatric chiropractor in Mason is skilled in working with children to gently re-position the vertebrae, restoring nervous system health and tackling ADHD at its source.
