We teach children and adults with ADHD how to strengthen their 'brakes' while also giving their bodies and 'engines' a tune-up. Medication is not the only answer.
Woodbury, MN (PRWEB) September 13, 2013
Woodbury Health & Wellness in conjunction with Schotzko Chiropractic now offers a holistic approach to help people manage the challenges associated with ADHD. Woodbury Health & Wellness is a Certified “SHINE for Doctors: Special Help for Integrating Neurological Experience” practice that combines ADHD Expertise, Chiropractic alignment, Neurological assessment with Exercise and Nutrition counseling.
ADHD is typically characterized by impulsivity, inattentiveness, and hyperactivity – characteristics that make it hard for those with this trait to reach their highest potential. Dr. Hallowell considers ADHD to be a trait, not a disability. When managed effectively, those with ADHD have accomplished extraordinary successes, but if undiagnosed or untreated, ADHD can wreck lives.
Dr. Hallowell says that having ADHD is like having a Ferrari engine for a brain, but with bicycle brakes. In keeping with this analogy, Dr. Adam Schotzko, of Woodbury Health & Wellness (http://www.woodburyhealth.com) says, “We teach children and adults with ADHD how to strengthen their “brakes” while also giving their bodies and “engines” a tune-up. Medication is not the only answer.”
Recent studies indicate that the use of medication to help manage ADHD is on the rise, however, many people with ADHD prefer a holistic, alternative approach and are already familiar with Dr. Hallowell and his NY Times best selling book, Delivered from Distraction. Woodbury Health & Wellness will combine Dr. Hallowell’s strengths-based approach by first identifying the unique gifts inherent in everyone, and then tailoring their proven chiropractic techniques to help the person with ADHD achieve their full potential.
