Sensory Processing Disorder (SPD)

Help your child’s brain feel calmer and more organized.

“Before coming to Whole Family Chiropractic, Jameson was having emotional and behavioral issues at school. He also was having some balance and coordination difficulties, along with digestion issues – where he was throwing up quite a bit.

I felt that medical doctors were really quick to pass us along to the next step. It seemed like the road only lead to medicine or surgery and I knew that there was more to it than that. 

The care here is much more whole picture than other places we have tried. In addition to taking a look at the scans, they take into account things like: daily living, lifestyle, and activities. It is much more of a whole person approach.

WFC is very kid friendly and very informative. They are willing to work with us on whatever our goal is for his health. Care here is much more information based; “here’s what’s going on and these are your choices.” I appreciate that we have multiple options to choose from rather than being pushed in one direction.

When I realized this was working, I was relieved. I felt validated in knowing that the concerns I had for Jameson were legitimate. It wasn’t that there was anything wrong with him, but we are making improvements that are ultimately putting him in a better position to thrive.

Now, life is goofy. A lot of the issues he had were showing up at school. He is doing so much better now. He has better impulse control, he’s treating friends better, and following directions better.

The most special part of care at WFC is how friendly everyone is. Jameson can do his thing and I don’t feel like we are being judged. Everyone is very open, even other patients are very cool and accepting.”

How does chiropractic help with Sensory Processing Disorder? (2.5 minutes)

How do you know if chiropractic can help your child with Sensory issues? (6.5 minutes)

Have you ever felt like you don’t fully understand what your kiddo is feeling or why their behaviors can be out of control? We get it, it can be confusing to understand what you’ve been told about your child’s challenges and even more difficult to know what you should be doing to help them.

We have talked with so many families who are walking a mile in your exact shoes. Parents, it’s not easy trying to find out how to help your child with Sensory challenges, and even harder when you don’t fully understand the way your child sees their world.

Our goal is to help you understand not only how to help your child, but how to see the stress on the inside of their body and how it is contributing to different behaviors in their life.

For children who are living with sensory challenges, behaviors such as these are common:

  • Constantly moving and on the go
  • Sleeping issues and trouble turning their brain off at night
  • Trouble with transitions and routine changes
  • Lack of focus – leading to challenges with grades, speech, and learning
  • Trouble connecting the dots
  • Balance and coordination challenges – tripping, clumsy, disconnected, or low tone

Parents, you’re not alone in this. We’re here to help you get answers as to WHY your child is struggling and WHAT you can do to HELP their brain feel more CALM and ORGANIZED!
