First off, Chiropractic is NOT a treatment for asthma. However, many who suffer from asthma report big improvements just by receiving chiropractic care on a regular basis.
I have a friend who suffers from asthma and is more or less ‘asthma free’ now because he started getting adjustmentsregularly. He suffered for years with asthma as a small child, had shots, used inhalers, and even was in the hospital numerous times because of this condition.
No more. The only time he has a small attack is when he eats sugar. Other than that, he lives a normal life and breathes like everyone else.
Research shows a link between the spinal column, the nervous system the lungs and the respiratory system. This may be why many patients have mentioned improved breathing by consulting our practice.
Drugs may temporarily reduce symptoms – but they ignore any underlying nerve disturbance.
Asthma cases are rising at an alarming rate. Even the increasing use of cesarean births,antibiotics and our fascination with germ killing have been cited.
If these factors were the only issue, why wouldn’t all children living in the same house and breathing the same air, suffer equally?
Your diaphragm is the primary muscle used for breathing. Nerves that control each breath leave your brain and exit the spinal cord in the mid-neck (C3, C4 and C5) area. Spinal problems in this area can have a profound affect on the nerve supply to the diaphragm. CALL NOW!
