Chiropractic Can Provide Asthma Relief

Loveland asthma care with chiropracticAsthma is a significant concern for many people in Loveland and for society as a whole, really, since the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reports that this condition currently affects almost 19 million adults and 7 million kids in the United States. A full-blown asthma attack likely means a emergency room visit. Fortunately, Kauffman Chiropractic has helped many people in Loveland get relief from asthma symptoms.

The medical research verifies 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 adjustments. The researchers found that the patients who received chiropractic adjustments had a 34% decrease in asthma symptoms.

The Journal of Manipulative and Physiological Therapeutics printed another asthma-based study, except this one involved children. In this paper, the 36 participants ranged from 6 to 17 years in age and their asthma was regarded as either mild or moderate in severity.

After 12 weeks of chiropractic care, as a whole, the children reported a higher quality of life and a decreased level of severity. As a bonus, they also reported that they relied less on their bronchodilator and these positive effects lasted one year after chiropractic care was finished.

So, whether you're 7 or 70, if you have symptoms of asthma, be sure to contact Kauffman Chiropractic in Loveland and make an appointment today. We'll do what we can to help you breathe easier!
