Chiropractic and Asthma

Keep in mind that chiropractors do not claim to treat conditions. We merely seek to remove stress and obstruction to your nervous system function, which is often the root cause of symptoms and dysfunctions. This is why people with a wide array of health problems see restored health and improved function with chiropractic care, because the nervous system controls and regulates every function in the human body.

Asthma is a complex condition with many causes. One thing is for sure- a person is better equipped and able to adapt to their breathing difficulties without neuro-muscular tension and stress on their nervous system. Chiropractors assess the spine of someone with asthma no differently than someone without, but there are key areas which tend to show stress in a person with asthma. When these areas are "unlocked" the body can get to work healing from the inside out.

Commonly found with Asthma:
The upper cervical spine is a huge player for asthma, allergies and a history of immune system dysfunction.
The upper thoracic spine is responsible for the nerve supply for our breathing and the top portion of our rib cage.
The sacrum also has major implications.

Chiropractic has shown to be effective in the management of Asthma.

Many parents choose chiropractic for their family because it is a safe, non-pharmaceutical option. The body has a tremendous inborn healing potential if it is free of nerve interference.
