Asthma is a huge worry for many people in Texarkana, Atlanta and for a society as a whole, since the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reports that this condition currently affects almost 19 million adults and 7 million children in the US. A full-blown asthma attack likely means a hospital visit. Fortunately, Dr. Swanson has helped many people in Texarkana, Atlanta get relief from asthma symptoms.
The medical literature verifies what we see in our practice. For instance, a paper published in Clinical and Experimental Allergy assessed 31 adult asthma patients after getting four weeks of chiropractic treatments. The researchers found that the patients 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 participants ranged from 6 to 17 years in age and their asthma was considered either mild or moderate in severity.
After 12 weeks of chiropractic adjustments, as a whole, the patients reported a higher quality of life and a lower 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 finished.
So, whether you're 8 or 80, if you have asthma attacks, be sure to contact Dr. Swanson in Texarkana, Atlanta and make an appointment today. We'll do what we can to help you breathe easier!
