Chiropractic Provides Asthma Relief

Hopkins, Minnetonka asthma care with chiropracticAsthma is a significant concern for many people in Hopkins and for society as a whole, really, 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 United States. A full-blown asthma attack likely means a emergency room visit. Fortunately, Full Motion Chiropractic has helped many folks in Hopkins get relief from asthma symptoms.

The scientific research verifies what we see in our office. For example, a paper published in Clinical and Experimental Allergy evaluated 31 adult asthma patients after getting four weeks of chiropractic treatments. The researchers reported that the participants who received chiropractic adjustments had a 34% decrease in asthma symptoms.

The Journal of Manipulative and Physiological Therapeutics published another asthma-based study, except this one involved kids. In this report, the 36 kids ranged from 6 to 17 years in age and their asthma was considered either mild or moderate in severity.

After 12 weeks of chiropractic care, as a whole, the patients reported a higher quality of life and a lower level of severity. As a bonus, they also indicated that they depended less on their bronchodilator and these positive effects were still being demonstrated one year after chiropractic care was complete.

So, whether you're 7 or 70, if you have asthma, be sure to contact Full Motion Chiropractic in Hopkins and schedule an appointment today. We'll do what we can to help you breathe easier!
