Asthma is a significant problem for many people in Yuma and for a society as a whole, since the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reports that this condition currently affects almost 19 million adults and 7 million children in the US. A full-blown asthma attack likely means a emergency room visit. Luckily, Montero Chiropractic Clinic has helped many men and women in Yuma get support from asthma symptoms.
The scientific literature confirms what we see in our practice. For instance, a study published in Clinical and Experimental Allergy assessed 31 adult asthma patients after receiving four weeks of chiropractic treatment. The researchers reported that the individuals who received chiropractic care had a 34 percent decrease in asthma symptoms.
The Journal of Manipulative and Physiological Therapeutics printed another asthma-based study, except this one involved kids. In this article, the 36 patients ranged from 6 to 17 years old and their asthma was regarded as either mild or moderate in severity.
After 12 weeks of chiropractic care, as a whole, the children reported a higher quality of life and a diminished level of severity. As a bonus, they also reported that they relied less on their bronchodilator and these positive effects lasted one year after chiropractic care was finished.
So, whether you're 6 or 60, if you have asthma attacks, be sure to contact Montero Chiropractic Clinic in Yuma and schedule an appointment today. We'll do what we can to help you breathe easier!
