Aerobic Exercise Improves ADHD symptoms

At the Atlanta Center For Adult ADHD, we are often asked about natural approaches to help manage ADHD. An important study was published this year that analyzed the effect of aerobic exercise on ADHD using rating scales and functional magnetic resonance imaging. Aerobic exercise was found to improve clinical  symptoms as well as cognitive function in adolescents with ADHD. Brain activity in areas affected by ADHD such as the right frontal and temporal cortices was increased as well.
