ADHD Options

adhd

Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) has a profound effect on the lives of an increasing number of children and their families in Huntington. This chronic condition begins in childhood and often continues to impact a person throughout their adult years. The constant 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 loved ones to find a treatment 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 Huntington

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
  • Regularly 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 system 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. Misalignments are a common issue that cause a disruption in nervous system activity. They can be successfully treated with low force, non-invasive, and carefully applied adjustments. A pediatric chiropractor in Huntington is skilled in working with children to gently re-position the vertebrae, restoring nervous system health, and tackling ADHD at its source.

Nominated Best Long Island Chiropractor

We've been nominated for Best of Long Island 2018 & 2019!

"I only have good things to say about Balance Chiropractic! I was originally so terrified of chiropractic care but I felt very safe and comfortable here and am so glad I became a patient. I truly believe it helped me conceive my daughter and stay comfortable and healthy throughout my pregnance and after. I love how relaxing and peaceful the office and treatment rooms are. Dr. Deb and Dr. Paul are wonderful! They are so caring and supportive! We moved about an hour away and I still try and go when I can because it's worth the drive!"

Mary L.

"Last 2 weeks of December 2017 I was introduced to Balance Chiropractic. I was in a lot of pain in my neck both sides. As I met Dr. Paul he sat down with me and explained to me the different therapy that I may need for my pain. As the weeks went on the pain started to decrease from my neck."

Robert M.

"I have been going to Balance for a little over a month now and I've seen a major improvement in my posture as well as a decrease in my shoulder pain. Dr. Paul is extremely thorough and made sure I completely understood the treatment plan he wanted to implement."

James H.

"I have had vertigo for over 6 1/2 weeks. I saw ENTs, GPS and tried to get an appointment with several neurologists. One day last week I saw a sign that said Balance Chiropractic and Wellness Center. I walked in very dizzy and sick to my stomach. I was able to get an immediate appointment with Dr. Beberman...MY MIRACLE!!!"

Shelia B.

"Let me start out by saying that about a year ago I had been seeing a different chiropractor for months without any pain relief. Dr. Deb Genin is fantastic. She created a treatment plan and reviewed my insurance to map out my coverage. For once, I am optimistic about the prospect of improving my posture, spine health and overall quality of life."

Amanda S.

"After several months of care at Balance Chiropractic the improvement has been so helpful. Being a pregnant patient, Dr. Paul and Dr. Deb have been thorough yet cautious with my care, always asking and adjusting their method if need be. Their approach has been holistic and I have been so grateful for the personal help and attention during my pregnancy."

Alexis N.

"Life changing! I was getting headaches every single day. My headaches are extremely infrequent now and under much better control. I struggled with back and neck pain for years and it is finally feeling so much better now. It's an amazing thing to finally feel better! Everyone at Balance Chiropractic is wonderful!!"

Jennifer G.

"I wish I could give more than 5 stars! Balance Chiropractic and Wellness has truly changed my life. I have gone from having 20-30 (yes really) migraines a month since the age of 12 to maybe 1-2 depending on weather activity. Since going to Balance Chiropractic I have become a new person."
