Mountain View Chiropractic Patient Sensory Integration Disorder, Asperger’s, Autism Spectrum Disorder, Sensory Issues, Hyperactivity, and Stress Success Story at Cupertino Chiropractor

Wednesday, July 29th, 2015

Max has always been an intense child, but it wasn’t until he was almost 4 that we met a new preschool teacher who recognized that what had been going on with him could be described as Sensory Integration Disorder, or sensory processing issues.  Max hated his hair being touched. He would push other kids when they tried to hug him.  He would scream to try to block out loud noises.  He craved constant motion, or zoning out with screen time.  He would shriek “Mommy, don’t look at me!” and avoid eye contact.  If the routine changed, even slightly, we had to brace ourselves for a big emotional meltdown.

Grateful to have some idea of what to call what was going on with him, I started about nine months of research and negotiations with our pediatrician and health insurance about occupational therapy and getting an evaluation for autism. The more I read, the more he seemed to fit the pattern of what used to be called Asperger’s.

Meanwhile, I began my own healing journey at Dubner Chiropractic.  After seeing how much my health and energy transformed through Dr. Allen and Dr. Sharon’s care, and how gentle they are, I realized I had nothing to lose by bringing Max to them.

After the first visit, Max was hooked.  I couldn’t believe that he could sit still long enough for the network chiropractic treatments, but he loved them.  He says, “Mommy that makes my brain feel so good.”  Through Dr. Sharon’s guidance, we’ve cut out all processed foods, including gluten and sugar, and Max’s mood and energy is much more stable.  For the first time, he was calm enough to sit on the couch and look at a book by himself.  For the first time, he happily occupied himself with imaginative play in the bathtub, without needing us to entertain him.  He’s acting sweeter and more patient.

By the time we made it to the Autism evaluation with the clinical psychologists, his behavior, health and mood had all significantly improved.  They decided that his symptoms don’t rise to the level of warranting a diagnosis.  I was thrilled, but not because of the lack of label (because I was willing to get one if it meant that we could have access to treatments that might help him), but because I could already see what a profound improvement Max had made.

I’ve already recommended the Dubners to every friend I can think of, and I would completely recommend their gentle treatments for any child with sensory issues or Autism Spectrum Disorder.
