Dr. Chadd Burkhardt uses chiropractic techniques to help treat ADHD in children

ADHD is a neurological disorder that can impact family, social and educational dynamics. Parents are overwhelmingly turning to natural remedies for ADHD. Although chiropractic does not treat ADHD, it does reduce disturbances in the nervous system, which many parents have found to be useful in helping them reduce the ADHD impacts their child might be experiencing.


  • Inattentiveness (difficulty focusing or concentrating)
  • Hyperactivity or impulsiveness
  • Excessive physical movement
  • Issues controlling behaviors or thoughts

When considering a chiropractor for ADHD, it is important to understand that chiropractic care does not treat ADHD. Chiropractic adjustments create more activity in the prefrontal cortex, which is the part of the brain that helps determine if a fight or flight response is appropriate. The Wellery leverages neurological scanning technology to identify the area and quantity of stress in the body. Through technology, we can objectively measure the sensory information being relayed to the brain and determine to what degree the information is regulated and symmetrical (organized). When the body’s input to the brain is disorganized, it results in less than optimal output (behaviors). Chiropractic adjustments aid in the regulation of our sympathetic nervous system (the fight or flight response).

Jameson’s Success Story

Child sufferrer of ADHD was treated with by chiropractor in Maple Grove, MN

Before The Wellery, Jameson’s lack of focus and inability to listen, coupled with increasing defiance, were becoming more and more of a challenge for his parents to manage at home and while at school. His nervous system was dysregulated; Jameson’s gas pedal was running at superspeed. He would lose his temper easily.

The data from his scans showed that Jameson’s nervous system was caught in a storm of stress. His sympathetic (fight or flight) system was running in overdrive with too much disruption (a.k.a. noise) within his brain-body communication.

Imagine being at a concert, right next to the speakers, and attempting to have an important conversation. It’s going to be frustrating and nearly impossible to understand anything being said. This is what was going on with Jameson. When there is disruption in neurological communication, it challenges how our brain-body communicates.

Jameson began care and began progressing. It was wonderful to see Jameson’s personality come through more as his body began to find calm. Jameson is adapting to home and school life with less anger and more focus and demonstrating a greater sense of calm.
