Chiropractors work to align the spine which can be misaligned for many different reasons (trauma, habitual motions, over-compensation of certain muscles). When the spine is misaligned, it puts strains on certain muscles and organs and when the body is in this unnatural state, it can cause or contribute to health conditions like certain diseases or chronic pain. When the chiropractor, through a series of 'adjustments' is able to re-align the spine, it can bring relief to physical problems which in turn aid the relief from psychological illnesses like depression.

Parents with children with ADHD are all too familiar with the difficulty of getting their son or daughter to “switch gears.” Similarly, children with ADHD can over-focus on seemingly insignificant details like a bird outside a classroom window. In his book Attention Deficit Disorder, Thomas E. Brown describes this tendency as “hyperfocus” or the inability to disengage one’s attention from a task, sight or sound. That said over-focusing is not among the symptoms listed in the DSM-IV's formal criteria.
