I have had tremendous success treating ADHD and ADD with Neurofeedback as a stand alone therapy. I did this before I was a chiropractor. Since becoming a chiropractor, I have started combining Neurofeedback and chiropractic care in some cases. With those cases, it seems to be that patients are responding faster to care.
Why might this be? In the research I did on chiropractic effects on brain function using Sacro-Occipital Technic® (SOT®), we showed that there were changes in the frontal cortex in the brain. This is an area that relates to attention, impulsiveness and something called executive functioning. These are all things that people with ADHD can struggle with. Other research on chiropractic done by Haavik has also show that the frontal cortex of the brain is affected by chiropractic adjustments.
By doing chiropractic at the same time as Neurofeedback, you are giving additional input into the brain to help it make the changes necessary to resolve the symptoms of ADHD. I like to do the chiropractic care and Neurofeedback on the same day, doing the chiropractic adjustment first and then the Neurofeedback. The idea is that you work more globally on the brain with chiropractic and then more specifically with Neurofeedback.
