Can a Chiropractor Correct Dyslexia?

There are no medications specifically designed to treat dyslexia and even with adults, but especially with children, natural drug-free treatments are often the best approach, including chiropractic neurology.
Chiropractic neurologists are highly trained and qualified experts of the brain, spine and nervous system who have continued with advanced post graduate training and vigorous testing to provide all standard services in addition to specialized services to serve their community’s patients.
While medical neurologists prescribe medications and neurosurgeons use surgery to correct conditions, a chiropractic neurologist uses medication free and non-surgical treatment methods. Because of this, their services are sought to fill a unique role in treating brain and nervous system disorders in a safe and effective way that produces lasting health benefits. Conditions they can treat include:
  • Headaches and chronic pain
  • Learning and attention disorders
  • Developmental disorders
  • Autism and dyslexia
Chiropractic neurologists treat patients for whom all other methods have failed. With disorders like dyslexia, a chiropractic neurologist will evaluate for subtle changes in the function of the nervous system.
Specialized chiropractic neurologists can locate and correct any vertebral subluxations and lessen the stress of the spine, discs, muscles, ligaments and nervous system – thereby relieving the symptoms of many learning disorders. These subluxations put pressure on the nerves leading to and from the spinal cord, which interferes with correct signaling to and from the brain. With regards to dyslexia, the pathways that allow for proper translation of written words into phonemes may be affected. By shifting these vertebrate into proper alignment, chiropractic neurologists can relieve the pressure on the nerves, which in turn allows the brain to properly process written words.
Edye’s Personal Story
I highly recommend finding a chiropractic neurologist with similar training to provide a new avenue of hope for successful treatment of conditions, if you or a loved one has a condition related to the brain or nervous system. After doing vision therapy, I went to another eye doctor in Pennington.  This doctor liked vision therapy, but favored Syntonic (light therapy) and was ahead of his time since there are many devices with colored lights on television.  I did the Syntonic, but the eye doctor also recommended I seek treatment from a neurological chiropractor. The doctor I began seeing was trained at the renowned Carrick Institute ( under a program accredited by the American Chiropractic Neurology Board.

 In my initial screening, he did all kinds of test of strength, balance, eye movements and more.  When I walked out of the testing, I noticed that a saliva gland in my mouth had just started working. I now have been going to him for 20 years, but less frequently since he has made my body and brain work better.  My eyes were corrected in seconds vs. vision therapy which took hours.  He balances and lowers my blood pressure, improved my reading speed and calmed my stress levels, since basic living is easier. I had a vertebra in the middle of my back that would pop out of place the day after seeing other chiropractors, it now rarely pops out because my brain no longer tells it to pop out. He is very gentle with adjustments and is more concerned about eye movements.  He puts blacked out goggles on with a camera inside so that he can see my eye movements in the dark, which tells a lot about what is going on in my brain.  Ideally, he would like to see steady eyes with no ticks. 
I know that there are not many neurological chiropractors in this U.S., but I highly recommend consider seeing one.
