Pain is a complex sensory process that is largely controlled by the brain, that is, the brain can sense pain and can then send electrical messages to inhibit pain in the body. If your brain isn’t working well then pain can be elevated in the body. Chiropractic Functional Neurologists have unique specialized training in how to treat pain. Inflammation also is a major cause of pain in the body so identifying the hidden causes of inflammation can help with treatment. Dr. Austin is an expert at treating inflammatory and pain conditions.
The specific causes of ADHD are not completely understood or agreed upon. Research has shown there is a link between genetics, premature birth, substance abuse, or extreme stress by the mother during the pregnancy and the diagnosis of ADHD. ADHD is very likely linked to many different influences (multifactorial causes) which could also include hidden or unknown nutritional deficiencies or food sensitivities, and other sources of chronic inflammation like hidden or unknown infections.
ADHD can be classified as inattentive type, hyperactive type, or combined type. The classification is based on the specific symptoms reported and observed for at least six months prior to the diagnosis.
