How Chiropractic Care Can Benefit People Who Suffer from Asthma and Allergies

If you do not suffer from asthma or allergies, you surely know someone else who does. That is because nearly a quarter of the population suffers from asthma or allergy symptoms.

Both, asthma and allergies, are severe conditions that can be potentially life threatening. Allergens incite asthma attacks or allergic reactions. This results in an over-exertion of the bronchioles in the lungs, which causes them to spasm and become congested. When they become congested, the size of the airways becomes smaller causing difficulty breathing.  

Common Treatments for Asthma and Allergy Conditions 

Most people do not consider chiropractic care when seeking help for their asthma and allergies. Traditional treatments often prescribed by a medical doctor include,

  • Allergy Shots
  • Inhalers
  • Oral Medications
  • Corticosteroids

Unfortunately, these treatments do not always work and are unnatural as well as potentially harmful, especially to children. 

Why Try Chiropractic Treatment First? 

Before committing yourself to administering unnatural and dangerous, shots, steroids, and continuous oral medication, we recommend all-natural chiropractic adjustments. Natural and safe chiropractic adjustments can increase the functional ability of a person's nervous and respiratory systems. Chiropractic care can usually resolve abnormal body function caused by misalignments

The spinal column directly influences the nervous and respiratory systems. For example, one of the largest muscles in the body is the diaphragm. It separates the chest and abdominal cavities but also assists in breathing. When a subluxation occurs, the nerve supply to the diaphragm is interfered with. This results in the diaphragm not being able to function at its most optimal level, impairing breathing.
