While chiropractic is not a cure for asthma, many people who suffer from asthma report a big improvement after receiving chiropractic care.
A lot of research shows a correlation between the spinal column, nervous system, and your respiratory system. This is why many people have mentioned improved breathing after regular care.
Drugs can temporarily reduce symptoms but never address the underlying nerve disturbance.
Asthma is rising throughout America at a fast rate. Many think it has a combination of causes, including the environmental chemicals we are exposed to. Research has cited everything from our fascination with killing all germs, antibiotics, and super air tight insulated homes as possible causes.
If these were the only factors, all children in the same house would have the same asthma problems equally right?
The Chiropractic Connection
The diaphragm is the primary muscle used for breathing. Nerves that control every breath you take leave your brain and exit the spinal cord in the mid-neck area (C3, C4 and C5). Spinal problems in this general area can have a big affect on the nerve supply to your diaphragm.
Reducing subluxations in the spine may help get back proper nervous system control of your lungs and improved function can begin.
