In the last two decades, we have seen an alarming increase of asthma cases in the United States by 60%. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reported that there are roughly 20 million Americans who suffer from asthma and that 5,000 of deaths a year are due to the condition.
There are many factors that cause asthma development and attacks. It can be due to genetics, air quality, food with preservatives, exposure to allergens that common home items have such as cleaning agents and carpets that contain formaldehyde preservatives, molds in the house and medications like antibiotics and vaccinations. Aside from all these, one usual culprit behind asthma attacks is stress.
This is why aside from medication given by a physician, people who suffer from asthma are encouraged to use relaxation techniques like yoga. Acupuncture and chiropractic adjustment are also said to relieve patients from asthma symptoms as these are said to improve bronchial hyper-activity and decrease asthma sensitivity.
Since asthma is a chronic condition, patients who suffer from it will live with it for the rest of their lives. However, with proper medication from an asthma specialist with the help of relaxation techniques and treatments like chiropractic care, asthma can be managed.
ChiroCarolina®, a chiropractic clinic in Charlotte, North Carolina, reaffirms the claim that chiropractic care can help ease asthma symptoms. Chiropractic manipulation has helped numerous of their patients deal with chronic conditions, such as back pain, headaches and asthma.
