A Natural, Drugless Approach to Caring For Kids with Autism, ADHD, and Sensory Processing Disorders in Vaughan
It is well understood that conditions like Autism (Autism Sectrum Disorder), ADD/ADHD, and other sensory processing disorders are a neurodevelopmental problem.
A neurodevelopmental disorder is a condition where the development of the brain and the central nervous system has been disrupted. This can lead to neurosensory integration chaos where a child can begin to experience behaviours such as:
- Disliking tags in clothing.
- Avoiding messy play (mud, finger paint, dough, clay, sand).
- Disliking strong smells.
- Speaking in a loud voice.
- Having trouble following a moving object or catching a ball.
- Avoiding or having difficulty with activities that require balance.
- Having frequent outbursts or tantrums.
- Confusing right from left.
- Being a picky eater.
- Easily distracted by noises.
- Inability to sit still.
- Getting easily frustrated.
Although chiropractic is NOT a treatment for autism, ADD/ADHD, or other sensory processing disorders, many parents have reported significant health improvements and changes in their child.
The goal of chiropractic care is to assess for and correct for vertebral subluxations (aka spinal misalignments). Subluxations are small and abnormal shifts of the bones of the spine. These shifts create a significant interference on the function of the nervous system. The spinal cord sits inside the spinal column and is well protected when the spine is aligned normally. However, when the spine becomes misaligned, this creates tension on the spinal cord and nerves causing a disturbance in the normal flow of nerve information from the brain to the body.
When a chiropractor corrects this abnormal position of the spinal bones, the subluxation, that disturbance or interference on the spinal cord and nerves is reduced or removed. This allows for a better flow of nerve power and nerve information from the brain to the body.
Chiropractic adjustments has been shown in a recent research study to also have a direct positive effect on the prefrontal cortex of the brain. Think about the positive implications of this research finding. The prefrontal cortex of the brain is responsible for enabling and controlling a variety of neural systems. The prefrontal cortex is also in charge of coordinating and planning tasks when achieving a goal, for focusing attention, and for avoiding distractions. These are all important and useful functions but are significantly lacking in children with sensory processing disorders.
It is prudent, then, that a child with sensory processing disorders be checked for subluxations by a chiropractor and have any subluxations corrected to help improve nervous system function and brain function. In doing so, we are helping the child maximize their fullest potential, their fullest function, and to thrive and grow in the best version of themselves.
Again, we are not talking about treating any condition. Chiropractic aims to correct misaligned spinal bones and improve the function of the nervous system.
