Chiropractors correct abnormalities of the intellect
as well as those of the body.

Want to give your child an edge in his or her studies for their academic (and athletic) best? For over a century chiropractic's beneficial effect on brain and neurological function has helped students improve their school experience.
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 dyslexia, ADD (attention deficit disorder) ADHD (attention deficit hyperactivity disorder), minimal brain damage, Tourette's syndrome, seizures, asthma, depression, obsessive-compulsive disorder, bipolar disorder, autism, Asperger's syndrome and 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.
It is most important that all students get their spines checked by a Doctor of Chiropractic so they may function at their best.
