Chiropractic for Asthma
Chiropractic does not treat asthma directly. However, many patients suffering from asthma experience improvement by receiving regular chiropractic care.
Drugs from an inhaler may temporarily reduce your symptoms but ultimately ignore the underlying issue: nervous system disturbances.
Research suggests that there is a link between the spinal column, the nervous system, and the respiratory system. This is why most chiropractic patients seeking treatment for asthma experience improved breathing.
What Causes Asthma
Asthma seems to be occurring at an alarming rate. Some think it's due to the increase of our chemical exposure.
For example, molds formaldehyde and other irritants in the home. The increase in C-section births, our obsession with germ killing hand sanitizers. However, if these are the factors you are probably wondering why all children are not suffering from asthma.
Chiropractic Treatment for Asthma
Your diaphragm is your primary breathing muscle. Nerves that control each breath leave your brain and exit the spinal cord. Spinal problems in this area can have a profound affect on the nerve supply to your diaphragm. Reducing or eliminating subluxations (spinal misalignments) in the spine may help restore proper nervous system function allowing for improved functioning in your lungs and diaphragm.
Research in the Journal of Vertebral Subluxation Research documented results from 81 children receiving chiropractic treatment. The two-month study revealed that those under care saw a 45% decrease in the number of asthma attacks and that 31% of the subjects voluntarily chose to decrease their asthma medication.
All this simply from improving the body's natural ability to heal itself.
