Asthma can be defined as a reversible narrowing of the large and small airways due to spasm of the bronchial smooth muscle, inflammation of the bronchial mucosa, and production of mucus. Asthmatic attacks can be brought on by stress, exercise, and viral respiratory infections. Allergens such as pollen, mold, dust and animal danders can also increase the risk of asthmatic episodes. One study has shown a decrease in Bronchiodialator use by 20% with chiropractic care, and decreased the severity of the reactions by 39%. Even better, after a year follow up, the improvements maintained. Isn't it time you tried chiropractic care for you and your family?
