Asthma can be a debilitating and a hard condition to live with. Individuals suffering from asthma can learn to adjust their lifestyle and learn how to cope with it, but that doesn’t mean they don’t have options for relief!
1 in 13 Americans suffer from asthma, and that number has been steadily on the rise. Typical 'treatment' for asthma includes everything from "rescue inhalers' to corticosteroids.
A study of a young female suffering from chronic asthma found the condition more manageable with chiropractic care. While suffering from asthma, she missed school and other daily activities due to major, and at times, debilitating attacks.
Chiropractic care helped her attain more control of her own life and restored her ability to enjoy day-to-day activities by decreasing these attacks and increasing her freedom!
This study focused on subluxation, a misalignment of the spine that affects the normal functions of the body, such as breathing. With subluxations present, her spine and nervous system were under physical and physiological stress, interrupting her body’s best chance for healing and functioning.
When the subluxations were eliminated via specific, scientific chiropractic adjustments, her body was given the best chance to heal and function at its fullest potential. While asthma can be affected by other factors such as environment, chiropractic care was a significant tool in generating a manageable environment and providing some relief!
After only 3 months of specific, neurologically based chiropractic care, she not only noticed an improvement in her breathing, but she was able to stop taking all her medications!
