Will Chiropractic Care Help?
Since chiropractic care isn’t a treatment for bedwetting, a thorough examination is necessary. If the bedwetting is caused by nerve interference from the spine, many children experience great results with chiropractic care.

Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)
We do not treat Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). However, since ADHD appears as a neurological disorder and chiropractic care attempts to reduce nervous system disturbances, many parents who want a natural, non-drug solution for their child have found chiropractic care helpful.
Traditional Methods of ADHD Treatment
A popular approach to controlling symptoms of ADHD is to administer regular doses of methylphenidate. More commonly known as Ritalin®.
Ritalin® is a schedule II controlled substance related to, and producing similar effects as, amphetamines and cocaine. The side effects, including personality changes and permanent changes to the brain, cause many parents to look for alternatives.
Chiropractic: A Pure and Natural Alternative
Hyperactivity isn’t the result of a drug shortage. Rather, we look for disturbances to the child’s nervous system, which often is caused by spinal distortions in the upper neck. In fact, this link between the spine, brain stem dysfunction and ADHD is common. A thorough chiropractic examination can reveal noticeable spinal distortion, even a reversal of the normal neck curve. With a schedule of safe and natural chiropractic adjustments, nervous system tensions are often reduced and resolved.
Asthma and Chiropractic
Chiropractic is not a treatment for asthma. However, many who suffer from asthma report improvement by receiving chiropractic care. Considerable research documents the link between the spinal column, the nervous system and the respiratory system. This may be why many have mentioned improved breathing by consulting our practice.
Your diaphragm is the primary muscle used for breathing. Nerves that control each breath leave your brain and exit the spinal cord in the mid-neck (C3, C4 and C5) area. Spinal problems in this area can have a profound affect on the nerve supply to the diaphragm. Reducing subluxations in the spine may help restore proper nervous system control of the lungs and allow improved function.
