How Chiropractic Care Can Help Learning Disorders

Treating Learning Disorders Through Chiropractic Care

At the Lancaster Chiropractic Life Center, we help patients with more than just physical pain. Research has shown positive results in children and adults with neurological disorders. It is our goal to help patients thrive. Our chiropractor will evaluate your child’s musculoskeletal system to determine how they will benefit from chiropractic care. There are a few ways that we use chiropractic care to help certain learning disorders.

Chiropractic Adjustments for Dyslexic Patients

While most people associate chiropractic adjustment with back pain, there are other ways that it helps the human body. Adjusting the spine of someone  with dyslexia, for example, changes the way the nerves communicate with the brain. This change in communication may help children learn despite their dyslexia. 

Chiropractic Care for Autistic Patients

Treating the central nervous systems of children with autism is one way in which chiropractic care can help improve the quality of their life. A chiropractic adjustment can improve communication within the nervous system, which can in turn improve a child's ability to think, learn, and reason. Many parents of autistic children turn to chiropractic care as an alternative to prescription medications. Chiropractic adjustments will also help physical pain that may be distracting a child from learning.


Children with ADHD can also benefit from chiropractic care. Research suggests that chiropractic appears to improve blood flow to the brain and balances nerve reflexes to the spinal cord. This shows that chiropractic are can help improve cognition essential for learning. Chiropractic releases stress on the brain, spinal cord, and nerves (the nervous system). This release benefits both children and adults, regardless of their condition.
