It's the same idea but different approach. The specialized chiropractor (there's only one licensed here in Arkansas)uses his hands to apply varying amounts of pressure on whichever cranial bones need adjusting. Ideally, the end result is less pressure on the brain and freer flow of fluids throughout the body. My son (ADHD) and I both went for this treatment a couple of weeks ago, and it was pretty convincing. Of course, one treatment is not sufficient as the bones tend to want to move back in their old position (just as teeth do when braces are removed), but I don't think it would take that many visits. Weirdly enough, my son's ears, shoulders, and eyebrows, were all level after the adjustment whereas they were quite off before. These and many more things are outward manifestations of misaligned skull bones. As for the ADHD, I don't know if I could see much of a difference after one visit; he's still pretty fidgety, but the ability to focus is a little better, I think. The other thing is that the cranium is connected to the sacrum through means of the spine. So if one has back problems or sacral pain, this can address that too. It's further-reaching than people realize! Let me know if you try it out. Good luck!
