Event: April Monthly Meeting: The Perfect Storm – Exploring ADHD, Autism, and Sensory Processing Disorder

April 27, 2017 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

April is Autism Awareness month. Join us for a workshop with Dr. Ryan Yates of Chiropractic 2.0, which will explore and explain the causes of neuro-developmental disorders such as autism, ADHD, seizures, and sensory integration disorder, with a specific emphasis on the role of the brain and central nervous system. Attendees will find direction on how to get their child’s nervous system balanced and healthy again using holistic/vitalistic methods, and therefore enhance and improve their child’s function and development, no matter the disorder.

The Perfect Storm breaks all the rules and explores many overlooked reasons as to why our children are struggling neuro-developmentally.  It is a practical and informative workshop that explores and explains some of the most important contributing factors in disorders such as autism, ADHD, seizures, and Sensory Processing Disorder, with a specific emphasis on their effects on the central nervous system (brain and spinal cord).

This workshop will teach attendees exactly how neurological development is supposed to occur, and where it deviates from “normal” with respect to spectrum disorders and developmental delays. Most importantly, attendees will understand how to get their child’s nervous system balanced and healthy, thereby enhancing and improving their child’s neurological function and development, no matter the disorder.

The workshop focuses on in-utero constraint and birth injuries, which are perhaps some of the most overlooked contributing factors when examining kids on the spectrum. It is estimated that around 82% of these children have some degree of birth injury, resulting in subluxation, with subsequent symptoms of abnormal neurological development.

Special emphasis will be given to not only traumas, but how toxins and emotional distress also contribute to the following elements, and how they collectively create a “perfect storm”:  dyskinesia, dysafferentation, dysautonomia, dysponesis, and disconnection.

Dr. Yates is a native of Logan, UT.  He earned a full-ride scholarship from Eli Lilly & Co. at Wabash College, one of two all-male colleges in the US.  He graduated Magna Cum Laude with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Philosophy.  He then went on to pursue his career as a NUCCA structural chiropractor, earning his Doctor of Chiropractic degree at the renown Palmer College of Chiropractic (Davenport, IA).  Dr. Yates completed his preceptorship in Graham, WA under the tutelage of Dr. Craig Lapenski and soon opened a practice in Liberty Lake, WA (near Spokane).  Dr. Yates practiced four and a half years helping thousands of patients before selling his practice and accepting a position at Parker University (Dallas, TX) as an Assistant Professor in the Technique Department, teaching students how to perform a safe and effective chiropractic adjustment. Dr. Yates feels most at home in the PNW and made the decision to return to private practice in western Washington.  He opened Chiropractic 2.0 across the street from Whole Foods in University Place in January 2017 and is excited to bring his unique skill-set to Pierce Co. residents.
