Asthma And Chiropractic Care

Asthma and Chiropractic Care

There are many factors contributing to the spike in people with asthma such as an increase of pollution and toxins in the air, second-hand tobacco smoke, and climate change, but one surprising factor that experts have found is poor posture and spinal misalignment. This is not surprising in the age of technology where we spend so much on our laptops, sitting at our  desks, playing video games, hovering over iPads and iPhones. This has left our spines misaligned and in many cases with painful back problems. Those with asthma are particularly in trouble as misalignment of the spine suffocates the nerves that assist the lungs during inflammation.

Chiropractic care for asthma has proven to be very effective to control asthma symptoms. With proper posture your lungs are able to expand to their full capacity and allow more air inside. This treatment involves aligning your spine back to its natural state and releasing the nerves necessary to help the lungs and airway.

Don’t get caught sitting on the sidelines like so many have. Some children have had to stay away from playing their favourite sports. By avoiding areas of pollution, eating well,  living in a dust free home, and consistent chiropractic care many children have successfully managed their symptoms. Is it not time you found out how to take control of your asthma rather than it taking control of you?
