From Overwhelmed to Balanced: Chiropractic Care for Children with Sensory Processing Disorders

Sensory Processing Disorder (SPD) is a condition that makes it hard for some kids to understand and respond to the things they see, hear, taste, touch or smell around them. This can make it hard for them to do things like make friends, learn in school, or do regular activities like getting dressed or eating.

One way to help kids with SPD is with pediatric chiropractic care. A pediatric chiropractor is a person who can help fix problems with your child’s nervous system, which is like your body’s computer, and it plays a critical role in sensory processing. Research has shown that chiropractic care can improve a child’s ability to process sensory information, reduce hyperactivity, and improve overall behavior. When your nervous system is working right, it can help you understand and respond to the world around you better.

Pediatric chiropractors work with children to identify areas of the nervous system that may be contributing to their SPD symptoms. They can then develop a personalized treatment plan to support the child’s overall health and wellness. In our office we use InSight Scanning technology to properly identify these areas of dysfunction.

The good thing about chiropractic care is that it doesn’t involve taking medicine or getting surgery. It’s also safe and gentle, which means it won’t hurt you. In fact, most kids like going to the chiropractor because it can make them feel better!

So, if your child has SPD and is having a hard time doing things that other kids can do easily, you might consider exploring chiropractic care as a potential way to support your child’s overall health and well-being.
