Asthma is a big concern for many people in North County St. Louis, MO 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. Fortunately, Dr. Holland has helped many folks in North County St. Louis, MO get support from asthma symptoms.
The medical literature confirms what we see in our practice. For example, a study published in Clinical and Experimental Allergy assessed 31 adult asthma patients after getting four weeks of chiropractic adjustments. The authors found that the participants who received chiropractic adjustments had a 34 percent decrease in asthma symptoms.
The Journal of Manipulative and Physiological Therapeutics printed another asthma-based study, except this one involved children. In this report, 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 care, as a whole, the patients 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 8 or 80, if you have asthma, be sure to contact Dr. Holland in North County St. Louis, MO and schedule an appointment today. We'll do what we can to help you breathe easier!
