Asthma Treatments in West Bloomfield, MI
For many, with the advent of spring comes allergies and resulting respiratory infections. For the patient suffering from asthma, it can be disappointing and even dangerous. The wheezing, shortness of breath, and chest discomfort can make it too difficult to get out and enjoy the nice weather. For many, a simple inhaler is not enough.
What Causes Asthma?
Asthma is a condition in which the airways swell and fill with mucus when the patient comes in contact with a trigger—typically an allergen. Asthma can have different causes. Some people inherit the genetic predisposition from their parents who have asthma. Others develop it due to allergies or infection.
Chiropractic care is a proven method of treatment for the symptoms of many conditions including asthma treatments. Studies have shown that the use of chiropractic treatments reduced asthma symptoms in sufferers. Patients in the study reported that, overall, their quality of life was improved. This improvement led to greater freedom to experience the world around them without suffering.
How Does It Work?
Nerve endings between our spine and brain act as pathways so that messages from our immune and nervous systems can reach the brain. When these nerve endings become blocked by misalignment, messages can’t get through properly. With chiropractic care, the body can become re-aligned, or adjusted, to unblock the pathways. This realignment allows messages to reach the brain and can help the body use its own defense mechanisms to process allergens and other asthma triggers properly.
