Secret Ingredient to breathe better

Chiropractic Adjustment Linked to Better Breathing and Autonomic Function

Better sleep, improved breathing, increased digestion and energy all manifest as side effects directly related to a Chiropractic adjustment. Most children and adults experience these benefits within twenty-four hours of their first adjustment. Unlike placebo effects originating from pharmaceutical drugs, the health benefits of Chiropractic care develop subtly and naturally by permanently changing the function of the nervous system. Science and research support how and why these positive health changes occur after a spinal adjustment.

Science and research prove that the benefits of an adjustment go well beyond neck and back pain relief. A Chiropractic adjustment directly improves brain function. The brain regulates all body function and subsequently empowers all aspects of human performance. One big improvement noted by millions of Chiropractic patients each week stems from a positive influence on breathing and lung health. Research from a medical journal titled Brain Research Bulletin in 1998 found a connection between the alignment of the upper neck vertebrae and breathing. Stimulation of small neurons located in the muscles, joints, discs, and ligaments in the upper neck create positive changes in the diaphragm, lungs, and blood vessels. This significant research shows why any child or adult with lung or breathing troubles will benefit from a spine and nervous system evaluation by a Chiropractor.

Chiropractors specialize in finding subluxations, a misaligned or improperly moving spinal region. A gentle force applied to the vertebra in a specific direction to promote movement and correction of the spinal malposition corrects the subluxation and immediately improves bodily function. Scientists refer to this as a stimulation of the small neurons located in and around the spine. Chiropractors call the action an adjustment intended to remove nervous system interference.

People all over the world experience autonomic nervous system benefits through specific Chiropractic care each week. Improved autonomic functions include blood pressure, digestion, immunity, and fertility. The intimate relationship between the spine and the central nervous system directly influences every system within the body. These connections clearly link the role of the human spine to the function of the brain. The improved function of the body directly related to Chiropractic adjustments serves as evidence explaining why patients have experienced improvements in breathing and lung-related symptoms or conditions. Chiropractic provides a unique approach to healthcare for children and adults to get well and stay well without the use of drugs or surgery.
