A new study in ADHD has come out showing that chiropractic care can reduce attention deficit disorder. Through manipulation of the nervous system in the spine of the ADD patient neurons from the spinal cord can travel quick and deliver somatosensory information to various parts of the brain which control different brain functions. This quicker delivery has shown better attention spans in attention deficit hyperactivity disorder patients. For more:
