Asthma is thought to be caused by a combination of environmental and genetic factors, asthma is a chronic lung condition that inflames and narrows the airways that bring air from the nose and mouth to the lungs. Symptoms from this can include difficulty breathing, wheezing, coughing and tightness in the chest. Asthma can in fact be deadly.
Chiropractic Connection to Asthma
Studies have explored the connection between spinal manipulative therapy (the chiropractic adjustment) and improvement in the symptoms of asthma. Both parents and children have reported lowered severity of their asthmatic symptoms following a treatment using chiropractic adjustments. Other case studies have also shown a link between chiropractic adjustments and a decrease in asthmatic symptoms.
