Asthma is a serious issue for many people in Redondo Beach and for society as a whole, truly, since the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reports that this problem currently affects almost 19 million adults and 7 million children in the US. A full-blown asthma attack likely means a hospital visit. Fortunately, Dr. Kaden has helped many people in Redondo Beach get relief from asthma symptoms.
The scientific research confirms what we see in our office. For example, a study published in Clinical and Experimental Allergy evaluated 31 adult asthma patients after getting four weeks of chiropractic treatments. The researchers found that the participants who received chiropractic adjustments had a 34% decrease in asthma symptoms.
The Journal of Manipulative and Physiological Therapeutics published another asthma-based study, except this one involved kids. In this report, the 36 kids ranged from 6 to 17 years in age and their asthma was regarded as either mild or moderate in severity.
After 12 weeks of chiropractic care, as a whole, the children reported a higher quality of life and a reduced level of severity. As a bonus, they also reported that they depended less on their bronchodilator and these positive effects lasted one year after chiropractic care was complete.
So, whether you’re 6 or 60, if you have asthma attacks, be sure to contact Dr. Kaden in Redondo Beach and make an appointment today. We’ll do what we can to help you breathe easier!
