Light Therapy & Chiropractic/ADHD

ADHD is characterized by inattentiveness to external direction, impulsive behavior, and restlessness.  Research strongly suggests that ADHD is caused in part by a deficiency of the Reticular Activating System in the attention center of the brain and seems to be the center of motivation.  It connects at the spinal cord and runs up to the mesencephalon.  

Dopamine imbalance, as well as abnormal levels of other brain chemicals, is thought to be a major cause of ADHD.  Symptoms may result because the brain does not produce enough dopamine, which then leads to impulsivity and lack of self control.  As dopamine levels in the brain begin to rise, one may become overexcited or hyper-stimulated. 

Eyelights Therapy
Many symptoms of ADHD are similar to those associated with binocular vision problems, such as convergence insufficiency and accommodative problems.  Eyelights therapy can help to strengthen the weaker eye muscle by stimulating the visual system.  Light therapy creates global excitation of the brain, causing an elevation in the production of hormones and neurotransmitters such as serotonin and dopamine. 

Studies have shown that color can also have a profound effect on behavioral and learning problems.  Certain colors can reduce hyperactivity, increase attention span, and improve speed and accuracy.   Behavioral problems within the classroom have been linked to the fact that fluorescent lighting in classrooms is lacking the blue spectrum of color.
