Asthma is a significant issue for many people in Atlanta, GA and for a society as a whole, since the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reports that this problem currently affects almost 19 million adults and 7 million children in the United States. A full-blown asthma attack likely means a hospital visit. Thankfully, Dr. Remond Weinberg has helped many people in Atlanta, GA get relief from asthma symptoms.
Research Shows Chiropractic Helps With Asthma
The scientific research verifies what we see in our practice. For instance, a paper published in Clinical and Experimental Allergy evaluated 31 adult asthma patients after receiving four weeks of chiropractic treatments. The authors reported that the individuals who received chiropractic adjustments had a 34% decrease in asthma symptoms.
The Journal of Manipulative and Physiological Therapeutics published another asthma-based study, except this one involved children. In this report, the 36 kids ranged from 6 to 17 years in age and their asthma was considered either mild or moderate in severity.
After 12 weeks of chiropractic, as a whole, the children reported a higher quality of life and a decreased level of severity. As a bonus, they also reported that they depended less on their bronchodilator and these positive effects were still being demonstrated one year after chiropractic care was finished.
