Asthma is a huge worry for many people in Depew 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 kids in the US. A full-blown asthma attack likely means a emergency room visit. Luckily, Dr. Palmer has helped many people in Depew get help from asthma symptoms.
The scientific literature confirms what we see in our office. For example, a paper published in Clinical and Experimental Allergy evaluated 31 adult asthma patients after getting four weeks of chiropractic care. The researchers found that the participants who received chiropractic adjustments had a 34 percent decrease in asthma symptoms.
The Journal of Manipulative and Physiological Therapeutics published another asthma-based study, except this one involved kids. In this article, the 36 kids 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 lower level of severity. As a bonus, they also indicated that they depended less on their bronchodilator and these positive effects were still being demonstrated one year after chiropractic care was finished.
So, whether you're 9 or 90, if you have symptoms of asthma, be sure to contact Dr. Palmer in Depew and make an appointment today. We'll do what we can to help you breathe easier!
