Asthma Problems & Chiropractic Care
Asthma is a life-threatening condition during which the sufferer’s airways constrict, swell, and produce more mucus than necessary. These symptoms make breathing difficult and can cause coughing, shortness of breath, and wheezing.
According to the American Academy of Allergy Asthma & Immunology, there are an estimated 300 million people suffering from
asthma worldwide, with the number predicted to increase an additional 100 million by 2025. Normally asthma is not a bothersome issue, yet for some, it can be life-threatening. Unfortunately, there is no cure for asthma yet—aside from the use of inhalers, asthma can also be treated through chiropractic care.
Causes of Asthma
Asthma symptoms can be triggered by a variety of environmental factors:
— Exercise-induced asthma is usually triggered by cold, dry air that enters into the lungs.
— Allergy-induced asthma sets in when an individual is exposed to a certain allergen, such as pollen, pet dander, or food.
— Occupational asthma is related to environmental irritants that people are exposed to at work, such as gases and dusty.
Reducing Asthma Symptoms with Chiropractic Adjustments
It is believed that asthma stems from spinal subluxations, which is when parts of the spine are out of alignment. These subluxations impede the neurological flow of spinal fluids. With the help of adjustments and other chiropractic treatments, chiropractors such as Dr. Danubio at Danubio Chiropractic Offices have been able to cure or significantly reduce asthma in both children and adults.
Dr. Danubio will use various spinal adjustment techniques to reduce pressure on the vertebra which in turn relax surrounding neck and back muscles that often constrict during an asthma attack.
