Anatomy of an Asthma Attack

Picture2 (2)According to researchers, brain-spine communication is critical for normal immune and respiratory function. When a qualified chiropractor makes spinal adjustments, he or she will open the message pathways that create a healthier respiratory system.

An increasing body of research suggests that spinal manipulations can be an effective treatment for asthma:

  • A 2010 review of eight published studies found that some asthma patients receiving chiropractic care reported a higher quality of life.
  • A 2002 study noted that asthma patients who received spinal manipulation reported an improvement in symptoms, as well as lower levels of depression and anxiety. Additional testing showed that the patients had lower levels of the stress-inducing hormone cortisol after the treatments.
  • Researchers at Northwestern Health Sciences University found that asthma patients who were given three months of chiropractic care reported less-severe symptoms and increased quality of life. The patients who received spinal manipulations also reported fewer uses of their emergency inhalers.

Chiropractic care has the potential to reduce the number of attacks you suffer. If you live with asthma, consider adding chiropractic care to your health care program.
