Condition of the Month
Asthma has become more common for children and adults today. Millions of people suffer from it. It is a chronic, debilitating lung disease resulting in narrowing and inflammation of the airways.
Common symptoms are wheezing, coughing, tightness in the chest and shortness of breath. It can be a minor irritation or life threatening. It is very frightening when struggling for a simple breath of air.
Asthma can also be a very costly illness, with medical/allopathic treatments of inhalers, nebulizers, corticosteroids and other medications. These do not cure asthma; they only treat the symptoms. These treatments can last a lifetime; making things both costly and restricting by requiring medications and equipment to be present always.
Prolonged corticosteroid treatments for any illness/disease can have long term side effects that compromise one’s health in other ways: raise blood pressure, weight gain/fluid retention, glaucoma, headache, dry throat, skin irritation, osteoporosis and loss of muscle tissue.
Chiropractic can be a safe and effective way to deal with asthma long term. Lung and respiration are controlled by the nervous system. A chiropractor is an expert of the nervous system!
The doctor will check to see if a subluxation in the nervous system is a possible cause of the asthma by an examination and films.
The adjustment given after this can relieve the nervous system of stress and nerve impingement which can allow the nerves to the lungs/airways to function normally and restore normal breathing and associated muscle response.
The atlanto-occipital area at the base of the skull also houses a regulatory/mediating part of the nervous system which can regulate and affect the respiration.
Once the nervous system is restored to a more normal state the respiratory system can resume more normal function and asthma can be relieved!!
The chiropractic adjustment also strengthens the immune system as proven by research, so respiratory ailments of all kinds are alleviated!

Chiropractic is safe for children!
The first subluxation for a child can happen at birth. This is especially true for induced labors, prolonged labors, vacuum extraction, forceps and cesarean deliveries which are epidemic in the United States.
Research confirms chiropractors’ observations that infants may suffer from spinal subluxations/misalignments. In one study, 1,259 infants were examined five days after birth. 211 of these babies suffered from vomiting/colic, hyperactivity and sleeplessness. Subluxations were found in 95% of them.
Today, M.D.’s put infants on acid reflux medication. Now why an infant would be put on medication that young for acid reflux? It doesn’t make sense when you really think about it. Chiropractors are able to treat not only these conditions but are very successful with Erb’s Palsy (limp arm), torticollis/twisted or wry neck, imbalanced head/skull and neck development and shape, ear-nose-throat conditions, bedwetting, allergies, sleep disorders, projectile vomiting, and constipation, etc. etc.!
Any infant or child sustaining trauma, even a “minor” car accident needs to be checked as soon as possible to avoid problems later on that are typically missed or underreported.
