Spoelstra Family Chiropractic is happy to announce that our extension program dealing with sensory integration disorders is now called Focus. The Focus program is an integrated, drug-less approach for people exhibiting traits of sensory integration/neurodevelopmental challenges that often carry the diagnosis of ADD, ADHD, or have patterns of being impulsive, hyperactive, inattentive or exhibit an unexplained lack of productivity.
Spoelstra Family Chiropractic is a S.H.I.N.E certified facility in the Dr. Ed Hallowell protocol. Dr. Hallowell is a world renowned expert on ADD/ADHD and was the author of the bestselling book "Driven to Distraction." Dr. Hallowell has partnered with the chiropractic community to help create an integrated approach to sensory integration challenges.
This drug-less approach brings together three proven techniques which have all shown to be highly effective for the treatment of ADD and ADHD. Those techniques are chiropractic, neurological integrated movements and nutrition. Alone, all three have made huge strides in the successful treatment of ADD, ADHD and other sensory integration challenges. Within the Focus program, we will be offering all of these techniques together in one place. Coeur d'Alene and the surrounding area is now one of few places in the world that such a program exists.
The Focus program looks to unmask the way people use their brains, how their body functions, how their diet can influence their health and expose the potential in each and every person. We have expanded our current office and we are conducting free orientation meetings every other week on Tuesday evenings. This meeting will provide you with all of the information you need to know to decide if the program is right for you or your child.
The Focus program takes a strength based approach to the treatment of sensory integration challenges. We do not view the brain as "deficient" for those suffering from these issues; only different. There is no denying that some of the most influential and creative people throughout history were and are labeled with terms like ADD and ADHD. People like Michael Jordan, Michael Phelps, Jim Carey, Bill Cosby, Will Smith, Justin Timberlake, and the list goes on and on.
Looking at the names above, it is hard to imagine any of those people as "deficient."
Space is limited for the free orientation meetings and they have been filling up weeks in advance. A new meeting will be held every two weeks on Tuesday nights, so please contact us as early as possible to avoid any wait. If you would like to learn more about this program or sign up for the meeting, please give us a call at (208) 667-7434 or visit us on the Web at www.CDAHealth.com.
