As we continue to better understand Attention Deficit Disorder [ADD] and Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder [ADHD], popular scientific research has grown more confident that ADD/ADHD are neurodevelopmental disorders, rather than psychological disorders. This means that communication within and the development of the central nervous system becomes paramount when addressing ADD/ADHD.
The very top of our spine, the C1 and C2 vertebrae, protect the area where the brainstem and spinal cord meet. Even the slightest misalignments in this area will impinge the communication from the brain throughout the spinal cord, deter proper blood flow, and potentially create a pooling of cerebrospinal fluid that creates intracranial pressure.
Through imaging and ongoing scans, the Pinnacle team will be able to assess any misalignment in the upper cervical spine, and develop a care plan around increasing the quality of life and continued safe care of any patient, regardless of age.
