ADD/ADHD Treatment in South Austin

These are all common symptoms of Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), which can be incredibly challenging both for the person diagnosed and their loved ones. Finding effective treatments is crucial to managing ADHD. As medication has many side effects, chiropractic care offers a natural way to help address the disorder.

Identifying the Root Cause

When it comes to ADHD, it’s crucial to look beyond the symptoms to understand potential underlying causes. Sympathetic dominance, or dysautonomia, is a state where the body’s fight or flight response is overactive—akin to constantly feeling like one is running from a predator like a tiger. This heightened state can make focusing, creativity, and attention challenging.

At River City Wellness, our approach to ADHD begins with a thorough assessment aimed at determining whether dysautonomia is contributing to the symptoms of the disorder.

By identifying this sympathetic dominance, we can create a targeted plan to help transition the nervous system from a state of high alert to one of relaxation and control—a state that is optimal for “resting, digesting, eating, sleeping, pooping, and focusing.”

Personalized and Gentle Chiropractic Adjustments

Chiropractic care is about gentle adjustments tailored to each individual, regardless of age. Our chiropractors ensure that adjustments are both safe and specific to the needs of our patients. These adjustments are designed to support the nervous system’s balance, facilitating a shift away from fight or flight to a more peaceful and attentive state.

Thorough Evaluation and Objective Testing

At the heart of our care is a comprehensive and meticulous examination process. We use objective testing and analysis to evaluate our patients’ nervous system and structural aspects. Retesting is also a key part of our protocol, allowing us to track progress and adjust treatments accordingly, ensuring each patient’s path to improved focus and calm is as smooth and supported as possible.
