Patients with special needs cannot be diagnosed in the same manner as regular patients. As a result, certain arrangements are required. When dealing with such patients, there are several factors to keep in mind. For instance, a child suffering from Asperger’s, dyslexia, ADHD or autism tends to show an imbalance in hemispheric function, known as “functional disconnection syndrome.” This often takes a toll on their posture and reflexes, leading to the need for a special supervised chiropractic treatment.
As patients we all tend to get anxious when visiting a doctor. This anxiety is dialed up a notch when it comes to special needs patients. One of the best methods of battling this is to provide a warm environment where they can feel safe; a room they can consider theirs. Here at Spinal Touch, we ensure the best of furnishings along with a warm lightning ambience, as bright lights tend to trigger anxiety in certain patients. The materials used in our chairs and tables are rigid and sturdy to avoid any unwanted injuries when dealing with a hyperactive patient. These rooms also serve as a mental haven as patients with special needs tend to avoid social situations.
