Chiropractic Provides Asthma Relief

Chiropractic Provides Asthma Relief in Lincoln

Asthma is a large concern for many people in Lincoln and for a society as a whole, 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, Dr. Kallio has helped many men and women in Lincoln get help from asthma symptoms.

Research Proves Chiropractic Care Helps With Asthma

The scientific research confirms what we see in our office. For instance, a study published in Clinical and Experimental Allergy evaluated 31 adult asthma patients after getting four weeks of chiropractic care. The researchers reported that the patients who received chiropractic care had a 34 percent decrease in asthma symptoms.

The Journal of Manipulative and Physiological Therapeutics published another asthma-based study, except this one involved kids. In this paper, the 36 patients 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 adjustments, 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 depended less on their bronchodilator and these positive effects lasted one year after chiropractic care was complete.
