A new and exciting approach to treating children with learning disabilities is taking place. We don’t often think of the martial arts as targeting cognitive or developmental disabilities. But a revolution is underfoot. At West Hudson Chiropractic, Dr. Kerry Escamilla offers a variety of chiropractic and nutritional procedures to help all our patients achieve optimal health through natural, safe, and effective care with a personal touch. Since every patient has a unique medical history, physical condition, lifestyle, and health goals, our first priority is to listen to what you have to say about your health. We provide a comprehensive clinical evaluation and detailed consultation, utilizing state-of-the-art diagnostic equipment with the individual’s special needs and concerns in mind. We are proud to offer therapeutic taekwondo in 07621 for our young patients with special needs and learning disabilities.

The therapeutic taekwondo in 07621 program has now evolved to include sensory integration, brain balancing activities, and nutritional interventions thus making it a true whole body-whole brain approach to treatment. we adapt what is known about nervous system function to prescribe corrective exercises and activities to help improve and strengthen connections between brain structures. In addition, social and life skills are reinforced as part of this innovative program. If a member of your family or someone you know has a learning disability, consider this exciting program as a fun way to help them learn.
