How Chiropractic Care for Asthma Works
Since asthma stems from inflammation in the lungs, most medicines will work to reduce that inflammation. Even so, many sufferers don’t notice any significant change and still have to deal with asthma attacks. One of the postulated reasons why these drugs don’t get the job done is because they fail to target one of the root causes, the nervous system.
Your nervous system and your musculoskeletal system are inextricably linked together and heavily influence one another. They also influence your breathing, which is why making sure your systems are in good shape is a great way to help reduce asthma attacks. Your phrenic nerve and the muscle it’s attached to specifically control your breathing. When subluxations in your spine cause stress on that nerve, it impacts the entire breathing performance.
When you treat the spine around the important phrenic nerve, it’ll have an easier time directing your breathing, which can significantly reduce the severity of any asthma attacks. Chiropractic care for asthma isn’t invasive and comes with no negative side effects, so why not give it a try?
