We do not treat asthma. However, many patients who suffer from asthma frequently report an improvement in their symptoms following receiving chiropractic care.
It has been well-documented through research that there is a link between the spinal column, the nervous system and the respiratory system. This is probably why many receive relief of their asthma symptoms with chiropractic care.
Causes of Asthma
Asthma has countless suspected causes and seems to be on the increase. Many have suggested a combination of factors leading to asthma such as an increase of chemicals in our environment, molds, chemicals, cleaning agents, airtight homes without adequate ventilation, dirty air filters/ducts in homes and many other irritants. Why then don’t all children living in the same house, exposed to the same chemicals and breathing the same air suffer?
Nerves that control your breathing leave your brain and exit the spinal cord in the middle of the neck and upper back. Spinal problems in these areas can interfere with the function of the nerves that go to your lungs and diaphragm causing problems. Removing this interference in the spine may help improve the function of your lungs.
