Tackling Nervous System Dysregulation for Lasting Health

If you are a parent of a child who is struggling with chronic health issues, such as digestive problems, sleep disturbances, anxiety, or intense emotions, you’re likely familiar with the frustration of trying numerous remedies without success.  Despite taking your child to see specialists, trying medications, and making lifestyle changes, you’re left without answers. 


What if we told you that the key to unlocking these answers lies within the nervous system? 


This blog is for you! Parents who are sick of temporary fixes and want to uncover the root cause of your child’s chronic health issues. By gaining a deeper understanding, you can help them find lasting relief and wellness. 


Let’s dig into what Nervous System Dysregulation is, what its underlying causes are, and how it appears in both children and adults. Most importantly, 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 present itself in various ways and impact physical, psychological, and cognitive functions in your child. 


Nervous System Dysregulation differs from a specific disease. Rather than a clear pathological process, it represents a disruption of normal functioning that, if left unaddressed, can lead to more serious disorders over time.


Understanding the root causes of Nervous System Dysregulation is crucial for effectively addressing and managing it. Several factors contribute to this condition, many of which we commonly encounter as Neurologically-Focused Chiropractors:


  • 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.
