The Holidays: Too Much of a Good Thing

Smiling young child sitting with giftsIt’s the holiday season and if your kiddo already struggles with sensory overload, right now can be a very stressful time!

We just made it through the big transition back to school and now we are seeing kids having

  • Trouble waking up in the morning
  • Sensory challenges such as wearing full pants in the fall and winter, or putting on socks with shoes everyday
  • Interrupting or trouble waiting their turn in class
  • Organization or forgetfulness with homework
  • Falling asleep in class
  • Emotional turmoil or mood swings throughout the day
  • Fidgeting
  • Trouble falling asleep at night to ensure a healthy night sleep and a great day ahead

Adding holiday events, more sugar than normal, and a peak in excitement for all the festivities can be a recipe for complete overload and meltdown for sensory kids.

This is why we always reach out to overwhelmed parents in this season. We want you to know you are not alone, we understand how hard it is, and we are here to help!

In our office, we help optimize the connection between each child’s brain & body in order to create less stress in their ability to integrate the sensory from their environment.

Every single sensation from your child’s environment has to travel through their nerves, then spinal cord, brain stem, and then to the brain, leading to a response. When their spine & nervous system is overly stressed, this communication pathway malfunctions, and their perception & response can both be altered.

That’s how soft things can feel sharp, everyday sounds can be infuriating, simple foods can feel and taste horrible.

With pediatric chiropractic care, we calm the storm that is happening in the neuro-spinal pathway, giving your child the best possible ability to integrate their internal and external environment appropriately and fly under the sensory overload radar.

If you’re ready to see your kiddo blossom, contact us today! We are here to support you and them and facilitate healing that will change their life!
