Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder or Attention Deficit Disorder – more widely known as ADHD or ADD – is a highly genetic, brain based syndrome that deals with the regulation of a particular set of brain functions and related behaviors. It currently affects approximately six million American children. With approximately 43% of children diagnosed with the disorder, many healthcare providers are working hard to develop a holistic treatment plan while they discover why the number is steadily climbing.
Functional Neurologists are at the forefront of the research by constantly developing effective and safe therapies and methods that work directly with the child’s nervous system. Brain retraining programs assist the brain and peripheral nervous system to function properly.
Many parents and caregivers are choosing to exclusively use Functional Neurology’s holistic approach, while some are choosing to utilize it as a complementary supplement to typical medical treatment. Whether you use it on it’s own, or as part of another treatment plan, brain retraining will only help improve the child’s outcome.
Our office takes this condition very seriously because we know it’s important for your child to have access to the best treatment options available. We start with a thorough examination of your child, starting with a physical examination. In addition, we go through a review of the child’s birth, infancy, mother’s history during pregnancy, family history, as well as any other relevant information. By utilizing a whole body approach, we determine the deficient areas of the brain, vestibular system, cerebellum, and brainstem and develop a treatment plan specific to the condition.
Treatment plans can consist of chiropractic adjustments that are targeted specifically to increase rates of firing in the right cortical hemisphere of the brain. To get a treatment plan that is customized for you, schedule an appointment with Dr. Surrusco. He will work with you to develop a plan that will help you reach your health goals and discover the underlying conditions you are dealing with.
When is the last time you let loose and had some fun, even if just for a moment? Many people find time to be silly in their pajamas in their own home, and letting loose should never make you feel uncomfortable. By doing a silly dance with your kids, a happy dance as you prepare a meal, or even a spontaneous karaoke event with your spouse, you will be releasing happy hormones in your body. It’s not only incredibly beneficial to your brain but can also make us more emotionally satisfied.
