Sensory Processing Disorder goes by many names (Sensory Integration Dysfunction, Neurosensory Dysfunction, etc.) but no matter what you call it, the underlying causes of it doesn't change. What is more, we strongly feel that sensory issues are one of the most commonly missed diagnoses in our community. A properly trained health care provider understands that many common conditions such as ADHD, Autism Spectrum Disorders, and many learning and behavioral issues have many sensory-based challenges, and therefore proper treatment must address these

One of the biggest problems in the health care world is providers having little to no clue on how to treat sensory challenges, let alone recognize them especially in young children. More and more with children who present with the many warning signs that sensory challenges are currently developing these signs are missed or worse the child's doctor will tell the parents "he'll grow out of it" or "let's wait and see what happens" and they are dismissed at a young age. Often later in life overcoming these challenges is difficult for these children. And to be honest waiting and seeing is the same as doing nothing.  It is our mission to "Define Better" for these children.  And one of the first steps we take in order to Define Better is to educate the community, and especially parents, how to recognize these challenges and also how to treat them as soon as possible.

Therapy is the first option when these sensory challenges are finally realized in most cases. If done properly this care is usually done by specifically trained occupational and/or physical therapists in a "sensory gym" or setting. While we support this form of therapy whole-heartedly, at Wall Family Chiropractic we know that therapy alone is like trying to drive a road with a hundred down trees. You can maybe get over one or two if you try for a very longtime, but sooner or later you will realize you can't make it all the way without someone clearing the trees first. When Chiropractic is combined (someone to clear the trees/nerve interference) then the desired outcome becomes a reality the child and family deserves. This combination of care can provide more effective and longer-lasting results than either alone.

Our sensory system is a "read and react" system. What this means is that our body is "preprogrammed" to respond appropriately to environmental stimuli. This programming occurs throughout life and can be thought of as 'sensory learning' or processing. The clearest example of this is a child placing their hand upon a hot stove... once it is done, it is rarely done again. This is because the burning and painful 'sensation' of the hot stove becomes ingrained in our sensory memory, and helps prevent us from making this mistake again. All sensory patterns in the body work in this way.

For children with SPD, this system is essentially not "programmed" correctly. For various reasons, it becomes “chaotic” and “disorganized” as the child develops improperly.  This can be caused by a variety of different things. In our office the most common causes we encounter are traumatic birth (ie. forceps, vacuum extraction, C-section), childhood falls, and improper development through excessive use of infant car carriers, walkers, and jumpers.

The first few months and years of life are more important to our sensory programming and development than any other. When children are put through events like the ones mentioned above, their neurosensory system develops improperly, leaving them either hyper (too much) or hypo (not enough) sensitive to their environment.  These imbalances can lead to major challenges and difficulties in social and academic settings, and contribute to other issues such as ADHD, anxiety, OCD, social withdrawal, and learning disabilities

Dr. Nathan is an absolute experts in this area, and can help determine if your child is developing properly or not.  Our examination includes computerized testing of the neurosensory system that gives us a great look at how well that nervous system is functioning and how well it is organized and integrated.  If imbalances are found, they can be addressed through our specific adjustments, coordination with therapy providers, and a holistic approach to treating the whole child.  Nowhere else is a combination of care like this available in the Kitsap county or greater Seattle area. Give Wall Family Chiropractic a call and let us help, you won’t be disappointed!
