Asthma is a big problem for many people in Buffalo 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 United States. A full-blown asthma attack likely means a emergency room visit. Luckily, Buffalo Family Chiropractic Wellness, P. C. has helped many men and women in Buffalo get relief from asthma symptoms.
The scientific literature confirms what we see in our clinic. For example, a paper published in Clinical and Experimental Allergy evaluated 31 adult asthma patients after getting four weeks of chiropractic therapy. The researchers reported that the patients who received chiropractic treatment had a 34% decrease in asthma symptoms.
The Journal of Manipulative and Physiological Therapeutics published another asthma-based study, except this one involved kids. In this paper, the 36 participants ranged from 6 to 17 years old and their asthma was considered either mild or moderate in severity.
After 12 weeks of chiropractic, as a whole, the patients reported a higher quality of life and a lower level of severity. As a bonus, they also reported that they relied less on their bronchodilator and these positive effects were still being demonstrated one year after chiropractic care was finished.
