How NetworkSpinal Can Address ADHD

woman in frustrationOctober is ADHD Awareness Month. Find out how the practice’s natural care may help adults with this neurodevelopmental disorder. 

Difficulty paying attention or focusing on a task. Hyperactivity. Impulsive behavior. These are some of the characteristics of attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). This mental health disorder can lead to unstable relationships, poor work or school performance, low self-esteem and other challenges.

While the traditional form of treatment for ADHD is medication (often stimulants), NetworkSpinal care may address the disorder. Best of all, the practice’s holistic and gentle approach to chiropractic care is completely natural, with no side effects.

What One Study Revealed

The Epienergetic™ Foundation website shared the results of a study: “Improvement in Attention in Practice members Undergoing NetworkSpinal: A Case Series Using Objective Measures of Attention.”

Here’s a summary:


Anecdotal preliminary evidence suggests chiropractic care may be beneficial for individuals suffering from ADHD. This case series presents the improvement in attention experienced by nine adult practice members receiving NetworkSpinal.


The case involved nine adult practice members (four male, five female) with a mean age of 40.4 years (range 22-58 years old). All practice members were evaluated with the Test of Variable of Attention (TOVA) before receiving NetworkSpinal care and at two months into care.

The nine practice members received level 1 NetworkSpinal care for two months, as taught by the Association for Network Care. Doctors assessed the practice members’ neurospinal state using palpation, as well as surface electromyography (sEMG). Cognitive process of attention was objectively evaluated using the TOVA continuous performance test.


The group was evaluated practice members before and after Network Care using sEMG and variables from the continuous performance test (TOVA). Before care, all practice members had an abnormal ADHD score with a mean of -3.74 (range: – 8.54 to -1.89).

After two months of care, all practice members had a significant change in ADHD score (p=0.08) and 88% completely normalized the ADHD score. 77% and 66% of practice members experienced considerable change in reaction time and variability score, respectively.

All practice members experienced a considerable reduction in sEMG pattern of activation (p=0.08). Doctors discussed possible means by which spinal care may have enhanced the function of the prefrontal cortex (part of the brain located at the front of the frontal lobe), thereby improving the ability to focus.


In this case series, the nine adult practice members experienced significant improvement in attention, as measured by objective outcomes, after receiving two months of NetworkSpinal.
