Children and Adults with Attention Deficit Disorder – “CHADD” for short- is a non profit organization dedicated to educating, supporting and advocating those who are affected by ADHD. CHADD of Utah holds monthly meetings and support groups where parents and family members have the opportunity to learn more about how to help their loved one. This month, Dr. Knight had the honor of addressing the group about the benefits chiropractic care has on children suffering from ADHD/ADD.

How Can Chiropractic Help?

Dr. Knight was pleased to address the group, and give them information about chiropractic treatments and the affect they can have on children with ADD/ADHD. His lecture covered:

  • How different stressors can exacerbate symptoms experienced by those with ADD/ADHD
  • How specific Chiropractic adjustments can improve focus, sleep, behavior, and irritability
  • The importance of nutrition, specifically increasing alkaline minerals, and avoiding processed sugars
  • Providing another option for families looking for hope and freedom from the challenges associated with ADHD/ADD
