Natural Asthma Treatment

Chiropractic Provides Effective Asthma Treatment

There are few things more frightening than being unable to breathe—a feeling asthma sufferers know all too well. This chronic inflammatory lung condition vexes almost 19 million adults and almost 7 million children. Chiropractic has helped many patients breathe easier by alleviating the root causes of respiratory problems through chiropractic treatment, while also helping them make necessary lifestyle adjustments.

Chiropractic Care for Asthma Relief

During an asthma attack, a person’s airways respond to noxious stimuli by tightening, constricting and secreting excess mucus. This causes an extreme shortness of breath. Getting immediate medical relief to re-open and relax the airways is essential, otherwise an attack could turn deadly. Inhalers and breathing treatments do this very well BUT they do not solve the underlying reasons a person’s lungs are so sensitive. Chiropractic care, however, can resolve any miscommunications between the nervous system and the lungs, reducing the frequency and severity of asthma attacks.

Our chiropractors usually discover that people suffering upper back pain also tend to complain of shortness of breath and co-occurring asthma symptoms. Upon deeper examination, our chiropractors typically uncover the patient has had either:

Subluxation of Cervical (Neck) Vertebra

Poor posture-related subluxation (misalignment) of cervical (neck) vertebra (C7), or upper back vertebrae T1, T2 and/or T3; Nerves exiting the spinal column from this area directly impact the respiratory system.

Traumatic Injury of Neck and / or Upper Back

A traumatic injury to this same area of the neck and/or upper back.

Chiropractic Treatments

Our chiropractors can provide treatment options for asthma relief.

Chiropractic spinal adjustments

Our chiropractors can gently and precisely correct these and any other subluxations to provide neck, upper back, and asthma relief at its root by releasing nerves responsible for controlling lung function.

Avoid Known Asthma Triggers

In addition to chiropractic treatment, our chiropractors also recommend avoiding any known triggers to your attacks, which might include:

  • Environmental allergens and pollutants (pollen, dust, pet dander, high AQI environments)
  • Cigarette smoke (first and second-hand)
  • Stress
  • Sudden temperature changes
  • Overexertion during exercise
  • Any known food sensitivities or allergens
