As the weather gets colder here in Peabody, many people may start to experience cold-induced asthma when they exercise. The town of Peabody is a very active one; there are plenty of local high school sports teams and residents who get out and exercise on a regular basis.
Dr. Danubio, a local chiropractor in Peabody, wants residents to know that cold-induced asthma can be treated with chiropractic care. Our practice believes in healing without the use or excessive use of medications.
If you experience the following symptoms while you exercise this fall and winter, you may be experiencing cold-induced asthma.
- Shortness of breath
- Cough or wheezing
- Decreased performance
- Tightness in the chest
Symptoms can arise almost immediately after you begin exercising and usually peak around 10 minutes in. Cold-induced asthma occurs most often in athletes performing aerobic exercises such as running or biking in the cold.
Our chiropractor in Peabody can deliver gentle chiropractic care for those suffering from cold-induced asthma by releasing tension in the neck and back muscles. Breathing can become difficult for asthma sufferers, but when the muscles are more relaxing it takes less energy to draw breath, which is key for those who exercise.
