Asthma is a significant worry for many people in Parma, Middleburg Heights and for society as a whole, really, since the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reports that this problem currently affects almost 19 million adults and 7 million kids in the US. A full-blown asthma attack likely means a hospital visit. Thankfully, Baker Chiropractic Wellness Center has helped many folks in Parma, Middleburg Heights get relief from asthma symptoms.
The scientific literature confirms what we see in our office. For instance, a study published in Clinical and Experimental Allergy assessed 31 adult asthma patients after receiving four weeks of chiropractic treatments. The researchers found that the patients who received chiropractic adjustments had a 34% decrease in asthma symptoms.
The Journal of Manipulative and Physiological Therapeutics published another asthma-based study, except this one involved kids. In this report, the 36 kids ranged from 6 to 17 years in age and their asthma was considered either mild or moderate in severity.
After 12 weeks of chiropractic adjustments, as a whole, the children reported a higher quality of life and a reduced level of severity. As a bonus, they also reported that they depended less on their bronchodilator and these positive effects lasted one year after chiropractic care was complete.
