Many who suffer from asthma find improvement through chiropractic care. There may be a link between the spinal column, the nervous system and the respiratory system. This may be why many have mentioned improved breathing by utilizing chiropractic treatment.
Your diaphragm is the primary muscle used for breathing. Nerves that control each breath leave your brain and exit the spinal cord in the mid-neck area. Spinal problems can have a large impact on the nerve supply to the diaphragm. Reducing vertebral subluxation complexes in the spine may help restore proper nervous system control of the lungs and improved function can begin.
Chiropractic care may help reduce the frequency and severity of asthma attacks. If you have subluxations, and they are the cause of your symptoms, many have found relief with conservative chiropractic care.
