How Chiropractic Care Can Assist the Asthmatic Patient

Asthma may be affected by spinal misalignments that cause vertebrae to irritate important nerves that carry information from the brain to the lungs. When these nerves become irritated, they can disrupt normal communication between the brain and lungs, altering normal breathing function.

Nerves that regulate the diaphragm can have a profound effect on how well the respiratory system functions. When nervous system interference is removed through chiropractic adjustments, oftentimes breathing improves and there is a significant decrease in asthma symptoms.
