Chiropractic Can Provide Asthma Relief

Chiropractic Can Provide Asthma Relief

Henderson asthma care with chiropracticAsthma is a big concern for many people in Henderson 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 kids in the US. A full-blown asthma attack likely means a emergency room visit. Thankfully, Dr. Russell has helped many people in Henderson get relief from asthma symptoms.

Research Proves Chiropractic Helps With Asthma

The medical research verifies what we see in our practice. For instance, a paper published in Clinical and Experimental Allergy evaluated 31 adult asthma patients after getting four weeks of chiropractic adjustments. The researchers reported that the participants 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 article, the 36 kids ranged from 6 to 17 years in age and their asthma was considered either mild or moderate in severity.

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