If you or your children in Davie, Florida, put up with asthma attacks, you’re not alone. About 8 percent of Americans – 12 million people – are plagued by asthma, which manifests by blocking or narrowing your airways, making breathing difficult.
You’re probably using anti-inflammatory drugs to reduce swelling and mucus production in the airways. You may carry a rescue inhaler with you everywhere you go. And you may have to avoid activities you enjoy.
Consider another alternative – one that doesn’t involve medications. Chiropractic care has been shown to provide some relief for asthma sufferers.
For example, a 1989 Danish study involved 115 families with children from only months old to age 7. The children suffered from asthma, diabetes, allergies and epilepsy. Seventy-three percent of the children had utilized chiropractic care for the asthma, and 92 percent of those families reported improvement in their child’s asthma.
Another study in 2001 evaluated 36 children ages 6 to 17 with mild and moderate persistent asthma. The children received either 20 chiropractic spinal adjustments during the three-month study, or sham adjustments. At the end of the three months, the children who received the authentic spinal adjustments rated their quality of life substantially higher and their asthma severity substantially lower. These improvements were maintained at a follow-up assessment a year later.
What’s the secret behind chiropractic? When chiropractors adjust your spine, they are trying to correct what they call “vertebral subluxations.” That means the vertebrae are misaligned or are not moving properly. And when your spine is misaligned, that can irritate and interfere with nerve impulses that run from the brain to your body. Without proper communication and nerve energy, organs can become diseased or impaired – and, in this case, the result is asthma or shortness of breath.
That’s where Chiropractic BioPhysics (CBP) comes in. To eliminate nerve interference in the spine, chiropractors specializing in Chiropractic BioPhysics (CBP) realign the shape of your spine, taking pressure off the delicate nerves that impinge on your respiratory system and restoring normal nerve flow.
Chiropractic BioPhysics or CBP is the most scientific, researched, and results-oriented chiropractic technique in the world. Chiropractic Spinal Hygiene Center, headed by Dr. Zev Mellman in Davie, Florida, is among only a handful of chiropractic centers specializing in Chiropractic BioPhysics. At Chiropractic Spinal Hygiene Center, we pinpoint the source of misalignment through digital X-rays or posture analysis software and devise a custom treatment plan to rehabilitate your spine.
