Nervous System Dysregulation and Lasting Health

Tackling Nervous System Dysregulation for Lasting Health

If you are a parent of a child who is struggling with chronic health issues like digestive problems, sleep disturbances, anxiety, or intense emotions, I understand how incredibly frustrating and exhausting it can be. You’ve likely tried countless remedies, consulted specialists, and made numerous lifestyle changes, only to find yourself still searching for answers.

What if I told you that the key to finding those answers lies within your child’s nervous system?

This blog is here to support you. It’s for parents who are weary of temporary fixes and are determined to uncover the root cause of their child’s chronic health issues. By gaining a deeper understanding, you can help your child find lasting relief and wellness.

Let’s explore together what Nervous System Dysregulation is, its underlying causes, and how it manifests in both children and adults. Most importantly, we’ll discuss how Neurologically-Focused Chiropractic Care can help in identifying, measuring, and addressing this often overlooked condition.

What is Nervous System Dysregulation?

Nervous System Dysregulation refers to a malfunction or imbalance within the nervous system that disrupts its ability to effectively regulate responses to stimuli. This disruption can show up in various ways, impacting your child’s physical, psychological, and cognitive functions.

Unlike a specific disease, Nervous System Dysregulation represents a disruption of normal functioning that, if left unaddressed, can lead to more serious issues over time.

Understanding the root causes of Nervous System Dysregulation is crucial for effectively addressing and managing it. As Neurologically-Focused Chiropractors, we frequently encounter several contributing factors to this condition. We’re here to help you navigate this journey and find the support and solutions your child needs. Here are a few of the factors we see:

  • Preconception and Prenatal Stress: The stress experienced by parents before and during pregnancy can affect the development of the baby’s nervous system
  • Birth Trauma: Interventions such as forceps delivery, vacuum extraction, or c-sections can impact the nervous system by causing injury to the upper neck and brainstem that house the vagus nerve.
  • Environmental Triggers: Exposure to environmental toxins and stressors can disrupt neurological function.
  • Lifestyle Factors: Diet, physical activity levels, and excessive screen time can all play a role in Nervous System Dysregulation


Recognizing the Symptoms of Nervous System Dysregulation

You may observe a range of symptoms associated with nervous system dysfunction in your child. These can manifest in various ways:

  • Physical: Chronic pain, digestive issues, headaches, and other bodily ailments may indicate underlying Nervous System Dysregulation
  • Cognitive: Memory problems, difficulty concentrating, and learning challenges can stem from neurological imbalances
  • Emotional: Mood swings, anxiety, and emotional dysregulation may be linked to dysfunction of the nervous system.
  • Behavioral: Changes in sleep patterns, social withdrawal, and other behavioral changes can be signs of underlying neurological issues.

Nervous System Dysregulation isn’t limited to one specific disorder but is associated with a range of conditions, including sensory processing disorder, autism, anxiety, constipation, immune system challenges, and sleep issues.
