ADHD, Sensory Processing Disorder and Autism Workshop

By | ADHD, Autism, Sensory Processing Disorder, workshop


A child who is diagnosed with ADHD may have many challenges. They also have many things that their brain is really good at doing. The brain of a child with ADHD may be very much like having a high performance motor in a car.
Do any of these sound familiar? Adventure seeking, low awareness of danger, high carbohydrate craving or falling asleep is difficult? Children may also struggle with low awareness of the feelings of others, Inability to focus or grinding their teeth while sleeping.
In some children overwhelm leads to very high levels of activity.

Working with ADHD is like having a high performance motor in a sports car when the brakes are meant for a bicycle. The problems happen when someone tries to slow down. In our nervous system, if we look at it in a simple model, we have a speed up system, a gas pedal and we have a slow down system, a brake pedal. The speed up system is also called the “fight or flight” or sympathetic nervous system. The slow down part is also called, “rest, digest, growth & repair” or parasympathetic system.

Sensory Processing Disorder

Another common set of signs include decreased physical coordination. This may also include significantly increased sensitivity to fabric, clothing and stitching or tags. Some children will only wear 1 or 2 soft items of clothing. There may also be increased sensitivity to sounds, lights and other stimuli. Children may complain of noises being too loud or they will put their fingers in their ears to block the noise.
Social engagement may also be decreased. Along with a marked lack of eye contact.
And different from above, where overwhelm leads to high activity, kiddos will simply shut down or disengage entirely.


The discussion around autism includes many areas of concern. Deficits in being able to engage socially and emotionally as well as very restricted areas of interest or activities that may include repetitive behaviors. Symptoms are present early in life and will impact social and occupational interactions. Intellectual disabilities may also be present.

Common topics discussed by parents reveal some similarities in the pregnancies and births of children who display such symptoms. Difficulty conceiving and a stressful pregnancy are often discussed when we are talking with parents. Moms and dads that come to our office frequently speak of birth interventions including difficult labor and delivery, cesarean section and vacuum extraction.

Pregnancy and Chiropractic care

Pregnancy is such a wonderful time in a woman’s life. The growth of a child is nothing short of miraculous. Though some of the changes that take place in a woman’s body can be challenging to adapt to.

We want to keep the stress level low in moms. We used to think that cortisol and stress hormones did not cross the placenta, now we know that they do. Strategies to keep a mother’s stress level low are important.

Dyspepsia, also known as heartburn can be bothersome during pregnancy. There is recent research to suggest that chiropractic care can decrease dyspepsia or heartburn during pregnancy. As the tension and tone of joints, muscles, tendons and ligaments is optimised, then baby can assume a more optimal position in mother’s pelvis.

Optimal position of the baby in the pelvis can also be influenced by gentle care of mom’s sacroiliac joints and round ligaments. Getting ready for a vaginal birth is easiest if baby is in the head down position. Webster Analysis is a simple analysis and gentle release that has been shown to assist in optimal positioning of baby.

Decreasing lower back pain during pregnancy. Chiropractic care can help the sacroiliac joints to move in their best range of motion possible. This combined with analysis and gentle release of round ligaments, and lumbar vertebrae can help to decrease lower back pain during pregnancy.

Maternal comfort and better sleep can be helped by chiropractic care. Initial studies are showing that mom’s under chiropractic care reported more comfort, improved sleep and better energy levels. This can be really helpful for mothers who have older children, work outside or inside the home and social activities to attend.

Easier labor and shorter birth times has been shown in initial studies to be a benefit of receiving chiropractic care during pregnancy.
