World Autism Awareness Day is April 2nd
According to the CDC, 1 in every 54 children is diagnosed with an autism spectrum disorder. On April 2nd, we’ll honor those who struggle with autism and their incredible families and caregivers by offering a host of Autism Solutions.
At On-Point Health and Wellness, we are lucky to have several tools and resources to help those with autism to overcome their challenges and improve their health. In most cases, we recommend a plan that includes hyperbaric oxygen therapy, acupuncture, and neurofeedback.
Hyperbaric Oxygen Chamber Therapy To Treat Autism
The hyperbaric chamber is an excellent resource for those with autism. Researchers believe that using hyperbaric oxygen therapy could help to improve cognitive and physical health symptoms of autism, mainly by increasing the oxygen levels in the brain and reducing inflammation.
Acupuncture & Neurofeedback Therapy To Treat Autism
Acupuncture is also an effective therapy for autism, especially when paired with neurofeedback. We can use these techniques to identify a child’s unique stressors and calm their nervous system’s reaction to stress. These therapies also reduce inflammation, improve other physical symptoms associated with autism (like digestive disorders), and help the child feel more confident.
