Scientific Studies Show Chiropractic Care Can Improve Asthma Symptoms

May 13, 2014

Considered as an epidemic, more than 20 million Americans suffer from the effects of asthma everyday. Despite the wide array of medications available for those that suffer from this disease, many asthmatics struggle to live an active daily life.


Many of the most effective medications for controlling asthma include steroids, which can be harmful over time. Luckily, studies prove that chiropractic care for people with asthma is a holistic and natural approach to relieving symptoms. Indeed, patients are not only experiencing relief, they are also living a healthy and active life without the potential side-effects of medications.

In one study published in “Today’s Chiropractic,” 47 patients with asthma ranging from mild to severe agreed to participate in a two-year chiropractic care plan targeting their asthma. Initially, the patients saw their chiropractor three times a week, which later tapered off to once or twice per month throughout the study.

At the end of the study, all of the patients showed a marked improvement in their asthmatic conditions. Remarkably, symptom improvement in patients was between 87 and 100 percent. Although these figures are very impressive, the best news is that after a two-year follow-up, every patient maintained their improved health.

Chiropractic care for asthmatic patients includes targeted spinal adjustments to improve the immune system and relieve restrictions that may be affecting the respiratory system. These restrictions are caused by subluxations in the spine, which results in nerve interference. Combined with exercise to relieve stressors and nutritional counseling for better overall health, chiropractic care can have a very positive impact on the life of asthmatics.
