Most people would never think of chiropractic as a way of helping with asthma. But because chiropractic focuses on the spine and the spine houses the spinal cord, the great communicator of the body, there are many problems that chiropractic can help with.
Asthma occurs because of an abnormal tightening of the bronchioles in the lungs. If the nerves in the thoracic spine are irritated, they send irrational messages to the bronchioles and the muscles that surrond them causing them to constrict abnormally. This restricts the airflow and makes it difficult for you or your child to breathe normally. Through chiropractic adjustments the pressure on the nervous system is removed and the improper messages from the nervous system are stopped allowing normal respiration to resume.
Many of the worlds top athletes receive regular chiropractic care to keep their bodies in top condition. Lance Armstrong has said numerous times that if it weren't for the help he received from his chiropractor he never would have won his last Tour de France.
