Chiropractic and children with ADHD

By Sharon Gorman, D.C.

SEE IT AS YOU WANT IT TO BE

I tell patients that the most common reason that children are referred in my practice is ADHD and that I have several patients who are teachers and refer children in the practice all of the time. I definitely have several teachers that are patients and several of them send children to the practice. I bet we get at least one a month sometimes more. The truth is that most of the children that become patients in our practice become patients because their parents bring them into the office as part of a family that has decided to get adjusted. Some of them are asymptomatic but now a days most children and people aren’t asymptomatic. Their ability to heal is compromised by having a nervous system that has interference which we know as subluxation.

Those kids are in the right place being in my practice as well as the children that are referred for ADHD or any other reason because I KNOW that a child expresses health better when they are not subluxated. I know this as most of you do but why do I lie? Why do I tell everyone about the ADHD children? Because I want more of them in my practice and I want people to know that it is OK to send them my way. Every summer I have many patients who take their children off of the meds to see what happens with their children’s behavior without the meds. The summer is the safest time to try it out because the kids are out of school anyway. Most don’t see the need to put the kids back on mood altering medication. It is so dangerous to be altering children’s minds with medication.

Well let me explain to you something I learned from Dr. Sigafoose many years ago. He often tells the story that happened many years ago when he was just starting in practice. People would often ask him how many patients he was seeing. He would give them a number that was way higher than the number of people he was actually adjusting. When asked why he lied he said that he didn’t lie. They asked him how many he was seeing and in his mind he was seeing that many people. They hadn’t asked him how many people he was adjusting. If they asked how many he was adjusting then he would have had to tell them the truth.

How many are you seeing? How many are you adjusting? Do they match up? Well if they don’t then maybe you don’t really see it in your minds eye! What else doesn’t look like you think it should in your life? Maybe it is time to see it in your mind and write about it and talk about it and make it real in your life. By doing this you will either create things the way you want them or you will stop tormenting yourself by telling yourself that you can’t create what you think you want.

Hope I got you thinking.
