For over a hundred years sufferers of all types of respiratory conditions have sung the praises of chiropractic care. Typical among case histories is that of an eight year old diagnosed with asthma at age five who was using Beclovent(TM) and Albyterol(TM) one to three times a day. After eight chiropractic adjustments over a period of 2 1/2 weeks, the child had stopped inhaler use, could run without gasping and was free of asthmatic attacks without medication. (1)
Anyone with asthma, bronchitis, emphysema or other chronic lung conditions needs to ensure their lungs and bronchi are receiving uninterrupted nerve communication from their spines. Chiropractic is a healing art dedicated to keeping the nerve passages in the body open and unobstructed. This will help the entire body, including the lungs, bronchi and other structures of the respiratory system, heal and function at its best.
