How Can Chiropractic Care Help Children with Autism, ADD and ADHD?

Chiropractic care focuses on the whole body, starting with the central nervous system.  Misalignments in the vertebrae and other subtle injuries throughout the body can interfere with the way the brain sends and receives signals.  When this happens, it can have a devastating effect on the individual’s behavior, emotions and physical abilities.  For children with autism, it can make the symptoms worse.  Here at West Hartford Chiropractic LLC., we offer holistic treatments that can help your child better cope with autism.

Chiropractic Care and Autism

It is estimated that one in 50 children in the United States are born with some degree of autism.  For parents, the diagnosis of autism can be devastating news, but there is hope.  When it comes to chiropractic care and autism, chiropractic treatments along with dietary changes have been shown effective at reducing autism symptoms.

Symptoms of Autism

•        Difficulty with Social Interactions

•        Reduced Creativity or Imagination

•        Slow or Nonexistent Language Development

Chiropractic Care for Autism with our Chiropractor in West Hartford, CT

Our chiropractor in West Hartford, CT offers chiropractic adjustments and nutritional counseling along with other treatment options to help reduce the symptoms of autism in your child and improve his or her overall health.

Chiropractic adjustments, especially gentle adjustments on the cervical vertebrae, have been known to help improve the lives of children with autism.  It is believed that they are effective because they help maximize the function of the central nervous system by reducing inflammation.  Nutritional counseling with our doctors can help by improving the nutritional value of your child’s diet and by finding and eliminating foods that are causing inflammation and irritation in the gut and intestines.  When these treatments are combined, certain autism symptoms become less noticeable, like ADHD symptoms, behavioral problems and language skills.

For more information on how chiropractic can help your child and to schedule an appointment for an initial consultation with our chiropractor in West Hartford, call us at 860-232-5556.
