Asthma

During the breathing process, signals in the nervous system travel from our brain to the spinal cord in the neck. By relaxing tension and pressure in this area of the spine, patients can experience relief of their breathing-related symptoms.

In a two-month study of patients who had chiropractic care to help their breathing, patients cared for had a 45% decrease overall in the number of attacks that occurred, and 31% of patients were able to decrease or stop medication. These results were highlighted specifically for asthma in children.
