Chiropractic Provides Asthma Relief

Chiropractic Provides Asthma Relief

Nashville asthma care with chiropracticAsthma is a significant worry for many people in Nashville and for a society as a whole, since the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reports that this problem currently affects almost 19 million adults and 7 million children in the United States. A full-blown asthma attack likely means a hospital visit. Fortunately, Sweeney Chiropractic has helped many people in Nashville get relief from asthma symptoms.

Research Proves Chiropractic Helps With Asthma

The scientific research confirms what we see in our practice. For example, a study published in Clinical and Experimental Allergy assessed 31 adult asthma patients after getting four weeks of chiropractic treatments. The researchers found that the individuals who received chiropractic adjustments had a 34% decrease in asthma symptoms.

The Journal of Manipulative and Physiological Therapeutics published another asthma-based study, except this one involved kids. In this report, the 36 patients ranged from 6 to 17 years in age and their asthma was considered either mild or moderate in severity.

After 12 weeks of chiropractic care, as a whole, the children reported a higher quality of life and a reduced level of severity. As a bonus, they also indicated that they depended less on their bronchodilator and these positive effects lasted one year after chiropractic care was finished.
