Asthma is a serious worry for many people in Jacksonville 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 children in the United States. A full-blown asthma attack likely means a emergency room visit. Thankfully, Chanatry Chiropractic has helped many folks in Jacksonville get relief from asthma symptoms.
The scientific literature verifies what we see in our office. For instance, a paper published in Clinical and Experimental Allergy assessed 31 adult asthma patients after receiving four weeks of chiropractic treatments. The researchers reported that the individuals 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 regarded as either mild or moderate in severity.
After 12 weeks of chiropractic care, as a whole, the patients reported a higher quality of life and a reduced level of severity. As a bonus, they also reported that they relied less on their bronchodilator and these positive effects were still being demonstrated one year after chiropractic care was complete.
