Edmond Chiropractor: Helping others breathe easy
According to the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America about fifteen million Americans have Asthma. Treatment usually works well to ease and prevent symptoms and it is usually treated with daily inhalers. Asthma is an inflammation and obstruction of the passages that allow air to enter and leave the lungs (bronchial tubes). Something some people don’t think about is the way your neck, spine and ribs can also play a role in how well you can breathe. Think about it like this; the spinal column, the nervous system and the respiratory system have an intermingling relationship. For this reason, you may be amazed to learn that some patients are visiting an Edmond chiropractor to seek ongoing treatment for their Asthma.
Sometimes even the most subtle turn the wrong way can cause rib bones to pop out of their normal place. Imagine all the commotion when an Asthma attack takes place! In addition to the lungs being affected by misplaced ribs, neck muscles can also play an important role. When one or more of the bones of your spine (vertebrae) move out of position, they can create pressure on spinal nerves. This pressure has the ability to irritate the nerves. As a result, the neck can become tight causing the normal flow of the lymphatic system (which helps our immune system to function normally) to fail. How does one get over this?
Well, the truth is that only on rare occasions does a person “outgrow” Asthma. As for the rest of the population suffering chronically from Asthma symptoms, an Edmond chiropractor can help. This is in no way to say that you should ever abandon all other methods if you have severe Asthma, but our Edmond chiropractor team does take pride in being able to help areas of the spine, neck and ribs. Our Edmond chiropractor team is certified and familiar with adjustments from head to toe. Some patients reveal that Asthma attacks seem to be less severe and less frequent with regular care.
