ADHD

Is your child over-active and impulsive? Is it affecting his or her performance at school? Can they not sit still even at home? Have you tried everything to no avail? Osteopathic Manipulative Treatment (OMT), the all-natural alternative, may be the answer for you.

Studies have shown:

  • OMT can increase performances of selective and sustained attention in children with ADHD

Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is a common childhood behavioral disorder that can continue its progression into adulthood.

Causes

The exact cause of ADHD is not known, however certain factors including genetics, exposure to toxins, poor nutrition, and brain injuries may contribute to ADHD.

Symptoms

Symptoms include difficulty staying focused, over-activity and impulsivity. Children with ADHD often find it hard to complete tasks and can have problems at school.

Diagnosis

ADHD is diagnosed by taking a thorough medical history and physical exam. Your doctor will analyze a patient’s behavioral traits in various circumstances, look for specific symptoms, and rule out any other underlying conditions (dyslexia, for example) that may exhibit similar symptoms in order to appropriately diagnose ADHD.

Treatment

Treatment is focused on relieving symptoms and improving function. Treatment options include:

  • Osteopathic manipulative treatment
  • Improving nutrition
  • Psychological therapy methods such as behavioral therapy
  • Medication: Your doctor may prescribe stimulants which can have an appeasing effect on children with ADHD. Some of the possible side effects include decreased appetite, anxiety, fussiness, stomachaches, headaches, and problems with sleep.
