It’s like he isn’t even listening.”
“She knows it in class but can’t do it on tests.”
“Would you stop shaking your leg for five minutes.”
“I have to take the tags off the back of all his shirts.”
“I want to help her more but I don’t know how.”
For many parents phrases like these are uttered or at least thought of too often in any given week.
Sensory Processing Disorder (SPD)
Sensory processing disorder (SPD) is a growing problem where the child has normal vision and hearing but can not properly process the information. This problem can stand alone or be combined with and exacerbate learning disorders, emotional or behavioral problems, ADD, ADHD, Asperger’s, and autistic spectral disorders.
How Can Chiropractic Help?
Chiropractic can improve the brain’s processing of the senses: sight, hearing, touch, taste and smell. Each Chiropractic adjustment (treatment) also improves proprioception and vestibular function. These two often overlooked senses allow for the body’s sense of position, motion, balance, coordination and more. Improved sensory processing often results in better school achievement, social interaction, self-esteem, improved sleep, well-being and lower stress for the whole family.
