Asthma patients have described an increase in their respiratory ability after experiencing chiropractic care. Why?
Asthma is a condition marked by the build up of mucus in the lungs and the narrowing of your airways. A combination of genetic and environmental factors contribute to the onset of asthma. While incurable, it is traditionally managed with medication and an avoidance of triggers that lead to asthma attacks.
Adjustments performed on asthma patients target the thoracic (rib) cage and seek to increase the mobility in that region. By mobilizing these areas, patients can experience increased blood flow throughout the body and higher lymphatic activity. Lymph, the white chemical that flows through the body as part of the immune system, returns protein to your blood and clears bacteria from your bloodstream making it an invaluable resource in the fight against asthma attacks.
