Discover the Benefits of Chiropractic Care for Asthma
Are you or a loved one grappling with asthma and seeking alternative approaches to managing this condition? Consider these compelling reasons to consult a chiropractor for asthma treatment:
1. Uncovering the Nervous System - Respiratory System Connection
Emerging research hints at a profound link between the spinal column, the nervous system, and the respiratory system. Many individuals have reported experiencing improved breathing after consulting a chiropractor. The surge in asthma cases is a cause for concern, likely influenced by various factors, including the rising presence of environmental chemicals.
In today's world, tightly sealed, super-insulated homes can inadvertently trap irritants like chemicals, molds, and formaldehyde. Additionally, the increased use of cesarean births, antibiotics, and germ-killing practices has been implicated. But if these factors were the sole culprits, why wouldn't all children living in the same household, breathing the same air, suffer equally?
2. The Chiropractic Solution - Nerves in Your Diaphragm
Your diaphragm, a pivotal muscle for breathing, relies on nerves that govern each breath. These nerves originate in your brain and exit the spinal cord in the mid-neck region (C3, C4, and C5). Any spinal issues in this area can profoundly impact the nerve supply to your diaphragm. Addressing nerve interferences in the spine may facilitate the restoration of proper nervous system control over the lungs, leading to improved lung function.
3. Evidence from Chiropractic Research
Compelling research published in the Journal of Vertebral Subluxation Research examined the outcomes of 81 children with asthma who received chiropractic care. Over the course of two months, these individuals experienced a remarkable 45% decrease in asthma attacks. Astonishingly, 31% of the subjects voluntarily reduced their medication. This transformation was attributed to improved nervous system control of the lungs.
Here are additional research articles shedding light on how chiropractic care can positively impact the lives of asthma patients:
Chronic Pediatric Asthma and Chiropractic Spinal Manipulation: A Prospective Clinical Series and Randomized Clinical Pilot Study, Journal of Manipulative and Physiological Therapeutics, July 2001

Chiropractic Care for Patients with Asthma: A Systematic Review of the Literature, The Journal of Canadian Chiropractic Association, March 2010
While we can't make promises, it's worth noting that chiropractic care may help reduce the frequency and severity of asthma attacks. If subluxations are contributing to your symptoms, conservative chiropractic care has offered relief to many.
