Asthma is a disease in which airways become blocked or narrowed. These effects are marked by shortness of breath, breathing difficulties and possible death. In Columbus Ohio, asthma is typically triggered by chemical allergens such as pollen, animals, dust, and stress factors such as exercise or emotional stress. Conventional medicine usually includes anti-inflammatory and bronchodilator drugs. These drugs tend to lose their effectiveness over time and subject the patient to side effects, which can sometimes be life threatening by themselves! Many children on these drugs are not able to live normal, active lives. Parents are often concerned about putting their children at risk with the long term use of these drugs. Columbus chiropractors take a natural approach to helping kids and adults with asthma that has shown to be effective.
There is an alternative to this potentially dangerous drug approach. Asthma patients have been discovering awesome results with their chiropractor in Columbus. Many patients usually don’t think to tell their chiropractor that they suffer from asthma. As care progresses, they find themselves asking their chiropractor, “Will chiropractic affect my asthma? I’ve noticed an amazing improvement in my asthma symptoms since I started getting adjusted!” Thousands of asthma sufferers have found relief in a chiropractic office, and studies are supporting this phenomenon. In a 1997 study published in the Journal of Vertebral Subluxation Research, doctors placed 81 asthmatic children under chiropractic care. These children were evaluated after 60 days of chiropractic care and the results were simply amazing! There was a significant improvement in the child’s asthma impairment score in 90.1% of the children, and many of the children decreased their medications. In a 1995 study published in Chiropractic Pediatrics, seven out of eight children who were under chiropractic care were able to reduce or eliminate their asthma medication.
