Exercise is a good ally to treat Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)

Restless, elusive, distracted. These are the children who have Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). If your son or daughter has ADHD and you do not know what to do to improve their school performance, exercise can give you the answer.

If you have already diagnosed your son or daughter with the so-called Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), it is very likely that you have sought some treatment. In that case, it is even possible that your child is taking medication. But maybe the idea of drugs to treat ADHD worries you. Maybe because of the possible side effects they may have or maybe because of the cost of medications. On the other hand, you worry that your performance at school is not optimal because you have trouble concentrating, you forget your tasks and do not finish what you start.

Your concerns are valid and that’s why this news may be good for you. Performance in school has one more ally. It’s about exercise.

According to a study published in the journal Journal of Pediatrics and conducted by researchers at Michigan State University, a few minutes of exercise a day could help children with ADHD to concentrate better and to eliminate distractions that prevent them from completing a homework.
