Neurodevelopmental disorders are a group of conditions that affect the development of the nervous system. This can include problems with motor skills, cognition, social skills, and communication. Some common neurodevelopmental disorders include autism spectrum disorder, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), and cerebral palsy. These disorders can range from mild to severe, and they often require specialized treatment.

- Attention-deficit/hyperactive disorder (ADHD) is one of the most common NDs, characterized by problems with focus, hyperactivity, and impulsiveness.
- Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) is another common ND and is characterized by impaired social interaction, communication difficulties, and repetitive behaviors.
- Cerebral palsy is an ND that affects movement and muscle coordination. It is caused by damage to the brain before or during birth.

- Conduct disorders are characterized by a pattern of disruptive and aggressive behavior. This can include fighting, stealing, and destroying property.
- Intellectual disabilities (ID) involve problems with intellectual functioning and adaptive behaviors. This can make everyday activities difficult.
- Learning disorders involve difficulties with certain academic skills, such as reading or math.

How can pediatric chiropractic care help?
Pediatric Chiropractic care is a drug-free, hands-on approach to health care that focuses on the nervous system. Chiropractors use adjustments to improve communication between the brain and the body. This can help reduce symptoms of neurodevelopmental disorders, and it can also help improve overall health and well-being. Many parents of children with neurodevelopmental disorders have seen great results with chiropractic care, and it's worth considering as a treatment option.
What to expect from a pediatric chiropractic visit
If you're considering chiropractic care for your child, it's important to find a qualified practitioner. Once you've found a chiropractor that you're comfortable with, you'll schedule an initial consultation. During this visit, the chiropractor will take a medical history and perform a physical examination. They may also order X-rays or other diagnostic tests. Based on their findings, the chiropractor will develop a treatment plan. This may involve regular adjustments, lifestyle changes, and exercises.
Why is pediatric chiropractic care effective for neurodevelopmental disorders?
Pediatric Chiropractic care is effective for neurodevelopmental disorders because it can improve communication between the brain and the body. When the nervous system is functioning properly, it's able to send signals to the brain that help with things like learning, behavior, and movement. When there's a problem with the nervous system, it can cause problems with these functions.
Dr. Brittney believes that every child deserves the best chance at life and works with them from birth to ensure any delays in development are detected as early as possible by investigating all possible areas of disruption within their nervous system, including neonatal health history or food-related toxins exposure during pregnancy which can lead not only impair motor function but also immune functioning later on down the line if left unchecked for too long.
Inflammation in the gut is one of many factors that can lead to brain and immune system dysfunction. The inflammation may be caused by a variety of toxins stored there from previous meals, drinks, or medications taken orally as well as environmental influences such as pesticides used on the produce you eat at home which have been shown to co-occur frequently with autism spectrum disorders (ASD). About 80%+ percent of infection goes onto your palette before making its way through either mouth.
