Are lights too bright and sounds too loud? If so, the problem may not be your environment. Sensory Integration Disorder is an unusual phenomenon that alters how we perceive the world. This condition may be concerning and uncomfortable, but it can be treated safely and effectively by chiropractic means. Here at our Spokane office, we provide gentle adjustments to address this and similar issues.
What Is Sensory Integration Disorder?
The ordinary function of the nervous system is to receive and process information from the senses. This function is called sensory integration. A person with Sensory Integration Disorder has dysfunction in the pathway that allows this information to be processed. This condition is sometimes called Sensory Processing Disorder (SPD) too. Common symptoms include:
- Thinking that clothing feels too scratchy or itchy.
- Withdrawing from touch.
- Thinking sounds are too loud.
- Being over-sensitive to odors.
- Gagging due to food texture.
- Experiencing poor balance.
Can Chiropractic Care Help?
At BETTER LIFE Family Chiropractic & Wellness, Dr. Chad performs gentle spinal adjustments to improve brain and body function. Subluxations are misalignments in the spine that can impair proper brain-to-body communication. Resolving these misalignments can improve neurodevelopmental conditions such as ASD and SPD.
Moreover, many sensory-challenged children enjoy the adjustments since they are gentle and calming. Unlike adult chiropractic treatments, these adjustments rely on the Thompson method and, in some cases, Activator Methods™. These techniques use special tools and a tilt table to adjust the spine without the need for pulling or other potentially aggravating maneuvers.
