The early months of the school year can be especially tough for families dealing with ADHD. From establishing routines to managing behavior, it can feel overwhelming.

At River City Wellness, we want to be your partner in natural health, helping your family in every way that we can.

Understanding ADHD Symptoms and Challenges

To empower your child, it’s crucial to recognize how ADHD can negatively impact their school performance. Here are the five main ways ADHD can affect them:

Difficulty Focusing and Sustaining Attention:
ADHD children often struggle to stay focused on tasks, leading to missed instructions and incomplete assignments.

Impulsivity and Impaired Decision-Making:
Impulsive behavior can hinder their learning and disrupt the class, such as speaking out of turn or being disruptive.

Restlessness and Hyperactivity:
Some ADHD children exhibit hyperactivity, making it difficult for them to sit still and engage in quiet tasks.

Poor Time Management and Organization:
Time management and organizational skills are often challenging for ADHD children, resulting in missed deadlines and frustration.

Emotional Dysregulation:
Emotional challenges, including heightened stress responses, can make it difficult for them to manage frustration and peer interactions.

Understanding the Root Causes and Neurological Connection

Dealing with ADHD can be frustrating, but there’s an empowering revelation we want to share with you. All these challenges stem from a common root cause: an overactive and excessively stimulated sympathetic nervous system, also known as the “fight or flight” response.

This aspect of the nervous system acts like a relentless “gas pedal,” pushing over 90% of children into a hyperactive state from an early age. Stressful pregnancies, birth trauma, and early childhood challenges further contribute to this overdrive. These experiences suppress the parasympathetic “brake pedal,” governed by the Vagus Nerve, making it unable to fulfill its crucial role.

Contrary to what the medical system may label as “normal,” these stressors and interventions during pregnancy, birth, and early childhood are not something children naturally outgrow. Current research and neurological insights suggest that many of these children develop neurological difficulties later in life, such as ADHD.

How Can Neurologically-Focused Chiropractic Help?

If you’re hesitant about medication but want to help your child this school year, there’s hope. Consider exploring Neurologically-Focused Chiropractic Care at River City Wellness. Our approach does not aim to treat or cure ADHD, but it activates the “brake pedal” side of your child’s brain and nervous system. This helps regulate the overactive sympathetic “gas pedal” discussed earlier.
