Neurodevelopmental disorders, such as sensory processing disorders (SPD), shows impairment in detecting, modulating, interpreting, or responding to sensory stimuli. Many times the symptoms closely resemble those of ADHD and autism. The signs may include difficulty reading and writing, organization and time management, clumsiness, lack of social skills, lack of desire to play, and others that do not allow the child to be child-like.

Some of the factors affecting proper functionality in neural formation are deeply rooted in epigenetic changes during the crucial pre- and post-natal developmental time periods. These factors may stem from in-vitro, birth and/or early childhood traumas, lack of breastfeeding, vaccinations, food sensitivities, and environmental toxins. All of these create a neurological insult to the body, especially when considering an immature system of a child.

Two recent studies published in the 2011 edition of the Journal of Pediatric, Maternal & Family Health have shown that chiropractic care increased functionality in children with neurodevelopmental disorders. Read more in Natural News.

My approach: Chiropractic care, in conjunction with sensorimotor re-education (through play), anti-inflammatory diet, and nutritional supplements, aid in addressing the mechanical and chemical aspects of the nervous system by re-establishing the appropriate rhythm of neurologic flow.
