Physiological Cause for ADHD and other Behavioral Disorders?
By: Dr. Chris Bennett, DC

ADHD and several other disorders have become household names that most parents and children have struggled with in some capacity or another. Could there be a possible simple solution? There are multiple different causes or contributing factors to most of the behavioral disorders that plaque our society. In this article we are going to discuss the physiological causes of these issues. Physiology is defined as the study of the function of the body and life processes.

If there is an interruption or a malfunction in processes of the body then it can cause a host of health problems, behavioral disorders being one of these. So what regulates the function of the body? There is a very important part of the brain called the brainstem which sits at the base of the brain and goes down the opening in the first two bones in the neck called the Atlas and Axis. The brainstem is responsible for regulating all function of the body and communicates directly with higher brain functions. When there is an interference with the function of the brainstem the brain gets too many nerve signals from some areas and not enough from other areas and the brain begins to become distracted by all the “white noise” that is going on. This causes the person to have a difficult time focusing, and leads to many behavioral and neurological problems.

What is the cause of this brainstem interference? A condition known as an Upper Cervical Subluxation is the cause for this interference in brainstem communication with the brain and the rest of the body. A subluxation is when one of the top two bones in the neck become dislodged into an abnormal position and get stuck in that position causing a “pressure” on the brainstem and nervous system of the body. Subluxations can happen many ways. It could be some type of accident or trauma. Most of the time it happens in some type of fall that we got up from virtually unharmed, but due to the fact that only about 10 percent of the nerves in the body are pain fibers you probably didn’t have any pain from the pressure on the brainstem that happened as a result of your fall. In most children and adolescents this subluxation stems all the way back to their birth. So the cause of some of cases of behavioral disorders in children could be as simple as a bone being out of place in the top of the neck that is putting a constant pressure on the brainstem.

How do you find out if you or your child could be suffering from this condition known as an Upper Cervical Subluxation? The only way to truly know is to get them evaluated by a trained Upper Cervical Doctor.

Dr. Chris Bennett moved to Marietta, Georgia in 2005 with his wife Hayley and daughter Alana to finish his Bachelor of Biology degree. After receiving his Bachelor’s degree with high honors. Dr. Bennett applied to Chiropractic school and was accepted. Dr. Bennett attended Life University in sunny Marietta, Georgia and studied Chiropractic as a discipline. While in school, Dr. Bennett became very ill which led to his interest into brainstem function and Upper Cervical Chiropractic. After his battle with his illness, he became very dedicated to learning Upper Cervical Chiropractic and put in three more years of additional study in that area. Dr. Bennett studied Upper Cervical Chiropractic with Dr. Robert Kessinger of the KCUCS organization, and still continues to study and gain more knowledge about this very special area. Dr. Bennett has served in a health care mission trip where he tirelessly served the people of the Dominican Republic and saw many miracles take place. Currently today Dr. Bennett now lives and practices in the Lake Orion, Michigan area where he can be back near family and friends. He has since added to his family with another daughter, Aubree, and a son Alex.
