Want to give your child an edge in his or her studies for their academic (and athletic) best? Many parents turn chiropractic for better school performance in their children.
For over a century chiropractic’s beneficial effect on brain and neurological function has helped students improve their school experience.
Science Backs Chiropractic for Better School Performance
Clinical studies and case histories have reported on the effectiveness of chiropractic care for brain function, concentration, balance and coordination. This is especially important information for the millions of children in the US with a neurological and/or learning disorder such as:
- ADD (attention deficit disorder)
- ADHD (attention deficit hyperactivity disorder)
- minimal brain damage
- Tourette’s syndrome
- obsessive-compulsive disorder
- bipolar disorder
- Asperger’s syndrome
- many others
Exactly how does chiropractic improve brain function?
Initial research indicates that blood flow to the brain improves and that chiropractic adjustments decrease inflammation and stress on the nervous system leading to decreased anxiety, improved well-being and improved brain function. Adjustments appear to balance nerve reflexes in the spinal cord. Other mechanisms may be involved as well. (1-3)
It is most important that all students get their spines checked by a Doctor of Chiropractic so they may function at their best. Give your child a winning edge – bring them in for a chiropractic checkup. Call and make an appointment today! (517) 627-4547
