Chiropractic Restores Health in Asthma Patients

Dr. Joe Borio from Borio Chiropractic Health Center in Cicero, NY states patients suffering from asthma and breathing conditions have found help in regular chiropractic adjustments. 

“Asthma is a chronic condition involving the airways of the lungs. When the airways become swollen, it becomes difficult to move air in and out of the lungs causing wheezing, shortness of breath and coughing.” stated Dr. Joseph Borio.

In the May 1995 issue of Chiropractic Pediatrics, a study found that a reduction in asthma symptoms in a group of children correlated to the correction of vertebral subluxations in the children's spines. According to the study "all participants showed measurable improvement on radiographs (x-ray films), which correlated with an improvement in asthma symptoms in seven of the eight cases".

The study also reported that after the tenth Chiropractic adjustment, an overall increase of 25.38% occurred in the mean average Peak flow meter reading which tests breathing and lung capacity.

Parents of the children involved in the study reported there was a significant reduction in the need for medications to control asthma symptoms.  "Seven parents stated that their child reduced the need for medication.  Four parents stated that their child did not require any medication to control their asthma symptoms.  Additionally, two parents stated that their child did not need to use the inhaler-type medication that they had previously needed on a daily basis".

The authors go on to state "the obvious clinical importance of this study is that children will benefit by having vertebral subluxations reduced/corrected that could interfere with normal respiratory function, especially lung capacity".

“About 6.3 million children suffer from childhood asthma. Everyone, regardless of what disease they have or don’t have, needs to be under chiropractic care. It’s the only way to care for your spine and nervous system and stay healthy as possible.” stated Dr. Joe Borio.
