Chiropractic & Alternative Treatment May Help Kids with ADHD

ADHD is the most commonly diagnosed neuro behavioral disorder in children today with 1 in 10 kids being diagnosed.  This prevalence has sky rocketed over the past generation.  Following diagnosis, children are commonly given a prescription for Ritalin.  This medication is a schedule II controlled substance that has effects similar to both amphetamines and cocaine.  As more parents are learning about the effects of medication on their children, they are looking to alternative treatments for ADHD.  Pediatric chiropractic care can be an effective, natural, and very safe option for parents.
