Asthma Relief with Chiropractic

Asthma Relief with Chiropractic

Asheville asthma care with chiropracticAsthma is a big worry for many people in Asheville and for a society as a whole, 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. Thankfully, Dr. Myers has helped many folks in Asheville get relief from asthma symptoms.

Research Shows Chiropractic Helps With Asthma

The scientific literature verifies what we see in our clinic. For instance, a paper published in Clinical and Experimental Allergy evaluated 31 adult asthma patients after receiving four weeks of chiropractic treatments. The authors reported that the individuals 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 children. In this paper, the 36 patients ranged from 6 to 17 years in age and their asthma was considered either mild or moderate in severity.

After 12 weeks of chiropractic care, as a whole, the patients reported a higher quality of life and a reduced level of severity. As a bonus, they also indicated that they relied less on their bronchodilator and these positive effects lasted one year after chiropractic care was complete.
