Q. When can I get an appointment ?
A. Click on “Book an Appointment” tab and you can usually get a ‘next day’ appointment
In my experience ADHD / ADD problems are often caused by misalignment of the cervical vertebrae. Usually it is misalignment of the Occiput & Atlas vertebrae. This is right at the top of the neck where it meets the skull. Soreness, when pressure is applied, in the muscle at this area and down the skull to just under the ears is a common symptom of this disorder. This misalignment puts pressure on the veins which are part of the drainage system for the head. In my opinion this reduces the flow of used fluids out of the head causing an excess of fluids to build up in the sinuses and put an abnormal pressure on the brain and on the cranial nerves.
I believe this abnormal pressure on the nerves causes them not to function correctly and consequently cause many different kinds of disorder to the head and brain. There is a basic law of physics which says, “If you alter the structure you alter the function. The abnormal pressure on the cranial nerves alters their structure and it follows that their function must be altered.
The function of nerves is communication. When they are altered by the abnormal pressure on them they can no longer function at 100% of their capacity so there can now be a lack of, or distortion of communication within the cranial vault. The symptoms of the interference to the communications network can be a reduction in the ability to Taste, Smell, Hear or See.
My job as a Spinologist is to correct the misalignment of the vertebrae. I use Spinology, massage and CranioSacral Therapy to achieve the corrections. The pressure is removed from the nerves and the communications system is restored, the muscles relax and the body is then able to heal itself and get rid of the disorders. Usually the relief is instant but it normally requires a few therapy sessions to help the body to heal itself of all its symptoms.
The main concept of Spinology is to have your spine checked regularly as part of your health care program. It really does make sense to correct the misalignments before you get back pain or some of the many other symptoms of misalignment of the vertebrae. Inattention, hyperactivity, and impulsivity are the key behaviours of ADHD. The symptoms of ADD / ADHD are especially difficult to define because it is hard to draw the line at where normal levels of inattention, hyperactivity, and impulsivity end and clinically significant levels requiring intervention begin. In any health care system to be diagnosed with ADHD, symptoms must be observed in two different settings for six months or more and to a degree that is greater than other children of the same age.
Symptoms of ADD or ADHD may include
Most people exhibit some of these behaviours, but not to the degree where such behaviours significantly interfere with a person’s work, relationships, or studies as happens to people suffering with ADD / ADHD. Symptoms may persist into adulthood for up to half of children diagnosed with ADD / ADHD. Estimating this is difficult as there are no official diagnostic criteria for ADD / ADHD in adults. The signs and symptoms may differ from those during childhood and adolescence due to the adaptive processes and avoidance mechanisms learned during the process of socialisation. Below are some of the behaviours /symptoms which may be exhibited in adults with ADD /ADHD.
