Natural Help for Patients with ADD / ADHD

Chiropractors do not treat ADD/ADHD.

Learning, attention and focusing difficulties can have a significant impact on a child’s quality of life, both in school and at home.

These challenges are often aggressively treated with medication, but at Hoffman Chiropractic & Wellness Centre, we believe that these symptoms need not lead toward pharmacological treatments only.

Instead, certain changes such as diet, exercises and chiropractic care can help improve the patient global well-being allowing parents and children to see improvements in  ADD/ADHD symptoms and enable more positive, productive engagement in school and family activities.

We help maximize your child's success

Personalizing Care to Your Child

Our neurologic approach provides an individualized care plan specific to maximizing your child’s success. Neuroscience shows connections between areas of the brain that are not functioning well and symptoms attributed to ADD/ADHD.

There are two separate areas of the brain that may affect your child’s symptoms:

  • Difficulty sustaining attention in tasks or fun activities
  • Does not seem to listen when spoken to directly
  • Does not follow through on instructions
  • Fails to finish work
  • Difficulty organizing tasks and activities
  • Avoids tasks that require sustained mental effort
  • Loses things
  • Easily distracted
  • Forgetful in daily activities

Orbital Frontal Prefrontal Cortex

  • Fidgety or squirms in seat
  • Leaves seat when sitting is expected
  • Feels restless
  • Difficulty in doing fun things quietly
  • Always on the go or acts as if “driven by a motor”
  • Talks excessively
  • Blurts answers before questions have been completed
  • Difficulty awaiting turn

Our comprehensive neurologic examination focuses on finding which areas of the nervous system that are not working well and may be improved. We will then devise strategies to target those areas for maximum functional improvement.

Jacob was hyper and unable to concentrate. I noticed an improvement in 2 weeks. And in only 6 weeks he became a different boy. He is a much more happy and contented child. And he can now play quietly by himself.
