Asthma is a condition where the airway narrows, swells and produces extra mucus. This can make a person have a difficult time breathing and can result in an individual to start to cough, wheeze and have shortness of breath.
For certain people, this is just a minor issue that doesn’t seem to bother them during their day to day events. While others it can be a major crisis that may lead to a life threatening asthma attack.
There are different things that can cause someone to have a flare up with their asthma. Occupational asthma is typically brought on when a workplace or environment has some irritant such as dust particles, or certain chemical fumes. Exercise induced asthma is typically brought on an individual is working out and the airway begins to constrict. The weather can also play a role on someone if it is cold and dry outside. Allergy induced asthma is what most people think of when they hear about asthma, which comes from pollen from flowers, or pet dander.
Most people think that an inhaler is their only option to help them with their issue. There are also alternative options that may be available for people with asthma. Chiropractic care has been shown to help improve the condition with chiropractic adjustments.
The main goal of any chiropractor is to help restore the structure of the spine and allow the nervous system to work at its optimal potential. Our nervous system plays a role in every muscle, organ, gland, and tissue in our body. This includes the lungs. Chiropractic adjustments not only helps the spine be realigned, but also allows the other areas such as the rib cage to be balanced which allows an individual to take a breath properly.
