Remember the recent post on chiropractic and ADD in children? Well, the timing of this new study couldn't be any more apropos.
A Swiss chiropractor named Dr. Yannick Pauli has published research which indicates that after two months of chiropractic adjustments, adults with ADHD improved their attention scores (in the Test of Variable Attention, or TOVA) as well as improving their ADHD symptoms!
These results are fabulous, but not entirely unexpected. As we know, the chiropractic adjustment removes interference from the spinal portion of the central nervous system, which allows the entire nervous system to function appropriately. The bombardment of the brain with pain and inflammation signals alone might be enough to trigger attention-deficit symptoms. And when the brain is able to regulate itself properly, symptoms such as ADHD begin to diminish as health is re-established.
This is tremendously exciting news, worth sharing with with your friends, relatives, and neighbors in Peoria, Peoria Heights, and the central Illinois area. A course of treatment with your friendly local Peoria Activator chiropractor might just help more than back pain: it might help you focus! Also, if your friends or relatives live outside of the Peoria region, contact me anyway: I'm always glad to refer patients to expert, knowledgable chiropractors in their area.
