Chiropractic—Breakthrough Treatment for Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)?
A paper published by Sturgeon Bay, Wisconsin Chiropractor Dr. J G Moellendorf, DC, ND, LCP, discusses how ADHD can develop and how Chiropractic care can have a beneficial affect on it. The full paper titled: Innate Intelligence and Chiropractic in the Care of Obsessive/Compulsive and Addictive Behaviors can be accessed at his web site.

Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) afflicts an estimated three to four million children, and probably even more adults. It is most often thought of as a medical disorder requiring medical treatment, namely mind-altering drugs such as Ritalin or Adderall.
There is no standard definition or standard of treatment for ADHD. The psychologist sees a mental disorder, the medical doctor looks at a neurochemical imbalance, the neurologist perceives a brain dysfunction, and the teacher observes a discipline problem. Then they attempt to treat these symptoms from their perspective, while failing to see the whole picture. While each therapy has some limited success in certain cases, they are puzzled at their failures when extending their treatment to all cases.
It appears that there is a genetic connection to ADHD. If one parent has ADHD, 60% of the children will have it. If both parents have ADHD, this increases to 90% of their children. From the 1990 research findings of Dr. Kenneth Blum, the A1 allele of the DRD2 dopamine receptor gene on chromosome 11 appears to be the most frequent cause of ADHD.
The root cause in many cases of ADHD is often related to malfunctioning in what Dr. Blum has named the Brain Reward Cascade. Humans very survival is dependent on the drive for pleasure. Whether eating, loving, working, or playing, the sense of pleasure is derived from the release of the neurotransmitter dopamine in the nervous system. This results in the “natural reward” of pleasure. When there is an insufficiency of dopamine production or transportation, it requires ever increasing stimulation to achieve a sense of satisfaction. This can be seen in the hyperactive response of those with ADHD.
