Asthma. It’s all too common. Nearly everyone knows that asthma is a condition that affects a person’s airways and ultimately makes it difficult for that person to breathe.

What Happens During An Asthma Attack?
One of the biggest threats to someone who has asthma is the environment. Air pollutants can create major asthmatic issues. These asthma attacks can also be triggered by emotional stress and illness. When an attack starts, it usually begins with shortness of breath, wheezing or an irritating cough. If it gets worse, the asthma attack doesn’t stop there. The lungs and airways constrict and inflammation from environmental factors can make it hard for the body to produce and deliver oxygen to the necessary cells. Breathing becomes extremely difficult and an inhaler, or sometimes even a medical professional, is required.
How Does Chiropractic Care Help Asthma?
Do you know what happens when a breaker trips in your home? That’s right, the power goes out to the rooms it was supplying. Your spine is actually very similar. When an area of the spine stops moving the way that it is supposed to, it interferes with the brain’s ability to get the messages back and forth to critical organs and tissues, such as the lungs.
Just as you flip the breaker switch back on and power is restored to your home, a chiropractic adjustment reconnects the brain and the body. Chiropractic care removes interference and restores normal nervous system communication so that the brain and body can work properly again, alleviating the symptoms associated with asthma. Stress on the lungs or airways is removed, allowing the body to breathe easier.
