Relief from Asthma with Chiropractic

Harrisburg asthma care with chiropracticAsthma is a serious concern for many people in Harrisburg and for a society as a whole, since the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reports that this condition currently affects almost 19 million adults and 7 million kids in the United States. A full-blown asthma attack likely means a emergency room visit. Thankfully, Blake Chiropractic & Rehabilitation has helped many folks in Harrisburg get relief from asthma symptoms.

Research Shows Chiropractic Helps With Asthma

The scientific research verifies what we see in our clinic. For instance, a paper published in Clinical and Experimental Allergy evaluated 31 adult asthma patients after getting four weeks of chiropractic adjustments. The authors reported that the participants 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 participants ranged from 6 to 17 years in age and their asthma was considered either mild or moderate in severity.

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