Chiropractic has been shown to be an effective, natural treatment for asthma sufferers in reducing the frequency and severity of asthma attacks. Chiropractic is not a cure for asthma and it does not specifically treat asthma. However, clinical studies have shown chiropractic to improve the respiratory condition of asthma sufferers.
Atlas Orthogonal, a very gentle and precise upper cervical chiropractic technique, focuses on the Atlas, the top vertebrae of the spine. Gentle adjustments remove nervous system interference along the spine, allowing the body to function optimally and heal naturally. The nervous system controls and coordinates every function in the body and mind.
When the nerve energy flows abundantly, without obstruction, the body and mind are 100% self-communication, self-healing, self-regulating and robust. So it makes sense that asthma sufferers have significant improvement in their breathing when under chiropractic care. The diaphragm is the primary muscle used for breathing and the nerves that control each breath leave the brain and exit the spinal cord in the mid-neck or C3, C4 and C5 area. Spinal problems, subluxations (bones out of place) in this area can have a significant effect on the nerve supply to the diaphragm. Aligning the spine in the upper cervical area, helps to restore proper nervous system control of the lungs and improved function can begin.
Subluxations are not a back or neck problem – they are a health problem! Getting regular spinal checkups along with a healthy diet and exercise can help patients find asthma relief.
