Sensory processing disorder (SPD) occurs when the nervous system isn’t working properly, causing impairment in detecting and responding to sensory stimuli. Misalignments of the spine can cause this malfunction, which is why chiropractic care has been proven to help.
Those with SPD experience a disconnect between the brain and the body. Regular chiropractic care can close the gap. The vestibular and proprioceptive sensory systems are, for the most part, housed in the spine. It’s essential for children with SPD to be evaluated by a chiropractor for vertebral misalignments.
Pediatric chiropractic care offers a different approach that zeroes in on the root cause of the imbalances. Two recent studies have shown the benefits of chiropractic care on SPD and Autism. In these studies, children were diagnosed with upper cervical subluxation patterns. The treatment consisted of specific chiropractic adjustments for a period of weeks to remove the subluxation and balance the neurology.
Many parents have seen significant changes in their child’s behavior after just one week of chiropractic care. To learn more, or to schedule an appointment, contact my office today.
