Some chiropractors, like myself, specialize in neurology and have functional solutions for some common neurological conditions. It requires consistency but for example, eye movement therapy has been shown to increase function in the part of the brain that isn’t firing well enough to manage ADHD. Also, there have been some correlations with nutrient deficiencies contributing to ADHD.

Please note that adjustments without ‘brain exercise’ and/or nutrition are not likely to help reduce your son’s ADHD. In addition, depending on the severity of your son’s condition, the affect of this style of treatment may just reduce the dosage of medicine your son needs to take; although it is also possible for him to not need medication depending on how he responds to treatment. Everyone is different.

Yes, a chiropractor can help with this situation. A thorough examination is needed to rule out conditions that may simply require time off from playing tennis if there happens to be a hairline fracture or significant heel spur growth from plantar fascia irritation. Aside from those conditions, a chiropractor would be able to mobilize the joints in your foot or ankle that may be contributing to you pain by restricting movements, release soft tissues and prescribe corrective exercises based on the type of foot you have; a flat foot, high arch, rigid or hyper-mobile foot. Depending on who you see, there are also various techniques that may also speed your recovery, but a proper examination is the first step.
